Haute 100 NY Update: Jay Z Unveils Comador Cigar Line


Jay Z is expanding his empire! The hip-hop mogul has teamed up with Cohiba to create his own cigar line, Comador.

For premium cigar aficionados, Cohiba may sound familiar. Although Americans are technically forbidden from partaking in Cuba’s famous cigars, Cohiba manages to straddle the divide. The company is split into two brands: one produced in Cuba for Habanos S.A. (the country’s state-owned tobacco company), and another produced in the Dominican Republic for the American-owned brand, General Cigar Company. Jay Z’s collaboration is with the General Cigar Company.

As a result, Jay Z’s super-premium Comador cigars are created by the master blenders of Cohiba with proprietary tobaccos from the world’s most revered growing regions. Handcrafted in Santiago, Comador is adorned with a rare Connecticut Havana wrapper prized for its exquisite flavor and deep, lustrous appearance.

Jay Z fans can purchase the pebbled-leather Comador Humidor containing 21 cigars for $999, a Comador Travel Humidor lined with fragrant Spanish cedar housing 7 cigars for $350, or the hard-sided matte black Comador Toro Box containing 7 cigars $210.
