J.C. Newman Ships First 2024 Release of Yagua

J.C. Newman Cigar Co. is shipping the first release of the year of its Yagua cigars.  

The misshapen 6 x 54 cigar is designed to look farm-rolled, similar to what  Lazaro Lopez, general manager of the J.C. Newman PENSA cigar factory in Nicaragua, remembers his grandfather making at his family’s tobacco farm in Cuba in the 1940s. It uses unfermented tobacco, and no two are alike.

Shortly after being rolled, 20 Yagua cigars are bound together while still wet using a Yagua palmiche palm leaf. Each box of Yagua contains a bundle of 20 cigars still wrapped in the palm leaf.

“Yagua is a difficult cigar to roll because we use an under-fermented Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper, blend the filler tobaccos differently, and do not use the usual tools and techniques of a cigar factory,” fourth-generation owner Drew Newman said in a press release. “As the wrapper is not fully fermented, we age the cigars for a full year after they are rolled.”Newman is shipping 1,550 boxes to 466 premium cigar retailers in 48 states.
