Hendrik Kelner Junior Smoking Jacket Henkie

Kelner Boutique Factory Bringing Smoking Jacket to Europe

Kelner Boutique Factory, the small handmade cigars business run by Hendrik Kelner Jr., arrives in Europe with the classic line of Smoking Jacket in four sizes: the Favorito (152 mm x 46), “called favourite because is the one I like best to smoke”, Kelner says; Toro Magno (178 mm x 49), long and elegant; a Robusto Imperial (127 mm x 52), and the trendy Short Robusto (114 mm x 56).

The blend is made with Dominican tobaccos from the “family reserve”. “I have a lot of tobacco aging in pacas, with long processes”, assures Kelner. “I am not in a hurry to produce cigars, because what I want to achieve is balance and flavour, no strength”.

Kelner is releasing a special edition of the Smoking Jacket cigar dedicated to his father, for which he has selected tobaccos that he knows Hendrik Kelner Sr. is fond of. The Smoking Jacket Henkie, a 152 mm x 51 vitola with a wrapper grown in Cotuí, DR, by Monika Kelner; the binder from his father’s crop. The filler is comprised of 80% of Dominican tobaccos and 20% of leaves from Condega, Nicaragua, “which I know my father’s likes a lot.”

Javier Blanco Urgoiti ist ein spanischer Journalist, der für die Prozesse rund um den Tabak schwärmt, die vor der Fertigung in der Zigarrenfabrik stattfinden, insbesondere für die Geheimnisse des Tabakanbaus. Ein Bereich, in dem er unermüdlich versucht, sich weiterzubilden. Javier raucht und schreibt seit 1998, zunächst für die spanischen Magazine “La boutique del fumador” und “La cava de cigarros”, später als Pressechef bei La Aurora, der ältesten Tabakfabrik der Dominikanischen Republik und nun für Cigar Journal, als Korrespondent in Spanien.
