While many cigar manufacturers are part of some long standing family tradition, there have been quite a few who simply were unimpressed with the quality of the cigars they were smoking. Take a look at Avo Uvezian for example. After smoking many unimpressive Cuban cigars, he decided to take matters into his own hands and eventually developed the luxurious Avo line. The same can be said about JSK founder Riste Ristevski. The Macedonian American, who was primarily a Cuban cigar smoker, noticed that many people who were involved in the boutique cigar market were actually just front men, and not really involved in the tobacco side of the business. While people such as Nick Melillo, Robert Caldwell and the RoMa Craft team are heavily involved in the tobacco end of their business, there are others who are merely creative forces. Riste wished to make his own line and combined Cuban flavor with his own touch of boutique style.

 JSK stands for Jas Sum Kral, which means “ I Am the King” in Macedonian. With several lines already released, Riste has already made quite a name for himself in very short amount of time. JSK cigars are a terrific blend of traditional Cuban esq techniques and styles mixed with a modern and hand crafted flair. If you are in the mood for something with a good amount of spice, id highly recommend going for the Red Knight. This Nicaraguan gem utilizes a stunning Ecuadorian Habano wrapper along with a Mexican and Nicaraguan double binder for a bold and complex profile.

 Where JSK has a unique place in the boutique market is with their Toothpick 2.0 line. This is a mix filler, everyday priced cigar that has all the flavor and complexity of a great boutique smoke but at a much lower price, so more aficionados are able to try it out. It comes in either a rich and robust San Andres Maduro wrapper or a spicy and zesty Habano wrapper.

 The team at Serious Cigars is proud to now be an official retailer of JSK cigars and encourage all of our customers to try them out right here.
