Robert Pelayo Duran, owner of Duran Cigars, said this of the decision, "As we all know, Jack Torano has a larger than life personality, so I figured that it was a natural fit to name the Neya F8 7 x 70 after him. He (Jack) had been pushing for the bigger size because there is a growing segment of cigar consumers that enjoy not only a full-flavored cigar, but a larger sized cigar as well. We look forward to presenting the "Big Jack" and feel that this new vitola will really impress those looking for the ultimate in size and strength."
"Never in my wildest dreams did I think that I would have a cigar name inspired by me, but what better cigar than the Neya F8 7 x 70. The Neya F8 has been a smash hit for us. There are many consumers that are looking for a full size-strength cigar and this one delivers. It's well balanced with complex flavors and it packs a punch! I'm very excited about it and I really look forward to introducing the "Big Jack" at the IPCPR." said Jack Torano.
The Neya Premium Cigar Brand was introduced during the 2014 IPCPR and it comes in a cedar 20 count cabinet. Both the filler and binder is Nicaraguan, while the wrapper is a Habana Ecuador. The Neya F-8 Ligero Typhoon, which is a full bodied version of the Neya Classic, is currently available in six sizes. The "Big Jack" will carry the same blend as the Typhoon but will pack an extra punch for those looking for that bigger size and strength.

Roberto Pelayo Duran began his life’s work in his homeland of Havana, Cuba where tobacco grabbed a hold of him, and never let go. Supervising the production of cigar manufacturing in Cuba was only the beginning as he later went on to assemble and manage distribution of all Cuban cigar brands for Asia at The Pacific Cigar Company Ltd. The creation of Duran Cigars has given Roberto the platform to introduce cigar brands that offer the same quality, construction, and detail which he expected from those he supervised while in Cuba. Duran Cigars brands include Azan, Roberto P. Duran Signature, Neya, and Baracoa.
