Update on the Jas Sum Kral Tyrannical Buc. Last week, Jas Sum Kral owner Riste Riatevski teased the world with just a name and a logo: Tyrannical Buc. Now more news on the cigar has been released including an international release date of April 2019.

The cigar uses filler from Nicaragua. From the Condega and Esteli region. And from the United States, Pennsylvania to be precise. The binder comes from the Jalapa Valley in Nicaragua. The wrapper is broadleaf Maduro. The blend is double ligero.


The cigars will come in four different vitolas, a 4×48 Magnum, a 5 1/2 x40 Generosos, a 6 1/2 x 50 Dobles, and a 5 1/2 x60 Golem Buc. All come in 15 count boxes. At the moment of publication, it was not clear which of the international distributors has ordered the new blend.

The company also announced that later this year, a Tyrannical Buc Connecticut will be released in the same vitolas.

Ministry of Cigars - Update on the Jas Sum Kral Tyrannical Buc

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.
