Altadis U.S.A. is celebrating Romeo y Julieta’s 145 years of cigars by releasing a new limited-edition cigar: Romeo y Julieta Eternal. The blend is made by the Plasencia family in collaboration with Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Development at Tabacalera USA.
“Romeo y Julieta Eternal is hand-crafted with luxurious tobaccos from the Plasencia’s private reserve in Nicaragua – the land of volcanos and rich soils – and boasts a stunning caramel-toned wrapper that has been double fermented and aged for 26 months,” says Nodal.
Slated for December, Romeo y Julieta Eternal comes in boxes of 11 cigars with one of the 11 featuring a golden ring. “Eternal’s golden ring symbolizes the strong bond between aficionados and Romeo y Julieta and the everlasting love of the iconic star-crossed lovers,” said Nodal. “It is a love that has proven to be eternal.”
Each cigar retails for $150 and comes in one size, a 6 x 54 Toro. The blend uses all Nicaraguan tobacco and is described as Medium to full-bodied.
