Jas Sum Kral releases limited edition Toothpick. The Swedish distributor Kind Cigars requested something special for the Cigar Smoking World Championship qualifier in Sweden. And together, Jas Sum Kral and Kind Cigars created the Jas Sum Kral Toothpick Barberpole.

Jas Sum Kral Toothpicks

The Jas Sum Kral Toothpick is a Cuban sandwich style cigar. That means, part Longfiller and part clippings from the regular Jas Sum Kral production. They are only available in a 5×50 robusto size. And with two different wrappers, Habano or Maduro. We reviewed both. on Friday, May 10, and Monday, May 13. Both reviews will be published. The cigars come in boxes of fifty.

Toothpicks are available in the USA, Sweden, Norway, and a few Asian countries. The distributors are Kind Cigars for Sweden. Nordic Cigars takes care of the Norwegian market. Cigar Emperor sells the cigars in a few Asian markets. The German distributor recently started with the Red Knight series, but they haven’t introduced the Toothpick yet. And distribution in the United Kingdom will start soon.

Riste Riatevski, the owner of Jas Sum Kral, told us that only a thousand barber poles excist. Hundred will be released at the Cigar Smoking World Championship qualifier in Sweden. These are not the competition cigar, but prizes for the patrons.The remaining 900 cigars will be for sale in Sweden. Kind Cigars will distribute them to shops all over Sweden. Kind Cigars hasn’t announced the suggested retail price yet.

Riatevski did not answer our questions whether the cigars could be released in other countries too if there was demand. Or if the Jas Sum Kral Toothpick Barberpole could become a regular production. So it looks like Sweden is the only place for the Jas Sum Kral fans to get these cigars. And just until stock runs out.
