SMOKIN' MONSTERS: JR CIGARS' TRIBUTE TO LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT
In time for the Halloween season, JR Cigars, "The World's Largest Cigar Store", has just released its new premium cigar, "Villainy". Why should Monsterologists be interested in this, you might ask? Because the cigar's name and the dark tobacco blend is inspired by Chaney's LONDON AFTER MIDNIGHT!
Here's the 411 from their webpage:
Inspired by the 1927 American silent horror film, “London After Midnight” starring Lon Chaney, the new Villainy Cigars are sure to thrill the palate. A JR excusive, these premium cigars feature the cream of the crop when it comes to the finest cultivated Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos. Dark Ligero filler tobaccos from the most fertile growing regions of Jamastran, Estelí, and Jalapa are rolled into a thick and tasty Habano binder. For a spectacular finishing touch, all of these fine leaves are covered in a dark brown and glimmering with oil, Viso Habano Jalapa wrapper. Solidly built, this masterpiece of quality and superb flavor rewards the palate with succulent notes of earth, cedar, nuts, exotic spice, and a sweet underlying essence. The movie is now lost forever due to a fire in the studio, but these incredible namesake cigars are here to stay. Featured in eye-catching horror- themed, novelty dress boxes of 20, these monstrously delicious medium to full body smokes are sure to be lining humidors everywhere.
