Jas Sum Kral heading to Asia. Alexander the Great was from Macedonia. He conquered a huge part of Europe and Asia. Riste Riatevski from Jas Sum Kral is trying to do the same. Although in a less violent way. Since launching we published a few new countries where Jas Sum Kral is recently introduced. 

And now we can add a few new countries to that list. No European countries though because Jas Sum Kral goes Asian. And further then Alexander the Great has ever made it. The Asian cigar distributor Cigar Emperor and Jas Sum Kral came to an agreement to distribute the cigars in Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam starting soon.

Matthew Nekvapil is the owner of Cigar Emperor. As an avid cigar smoker, he distributes several brands in several countries. Mainly Thailand, but also in Malaysia and Vietnam. The serial entrepreneur is adding Jas Sum Kral to his growing stable of brands.

For the initial launch, Nekvapil and Jas Sum Kral owner Riatevski picked the Red Knight. The Jas Sum Kral robusto and the lancero size to be more precise. Both the Maduro and Habano version of the Toothpick 2.0 is available as well.

Jas Sum Kral

Jas Sum Kral is the baby of Macedonian American Riste Ristevski. After years of smoking almost exclusively Cuban cigars, he got disappointed. Disappointed in the quality of the Cuban cigars in the last few years. Not just the quality of rolling. The declining quality of the tobacco isn’t to his liking either. That’s when Ristevski started to think about creating a brand. He got on a plane to Nicaragua and within a few hours, he created a blend. With the help of master blender and cigar manufacturer Noel Rojas. The Jas Sum Kral Red Knight is born.

With the Jas Sum Kral name, Ristevski honors his ancestry. It is Macedonian and means “I am King”. Other lines from Jas Sum Kral have Macedonian names as well. Unpronounceable for those that are not familiar with the language. With a strong fanbase in the United States, Ristevski is now growing his business internationally as well. With distribution in several European countries and opportunities in Asia.
