J.C. Newman Cigar Company teamed up with Jeff Borysiewicz, owner of Corona Cigar Company, to create The American. It is a cigar that is American in every way. Not only is every tobacco leaf for The American grown in the United States, every box is made here in the United States. The bands are also made here in the United States. Even the cellophane is made right here in the United States. Maybe the rarest part of the whole cigar is this; Every one of these cigars are rolled by hand in Ybor City at J.C. Newman’s El Reloj cigar factory.
