Ediciones Limitadas 2016: Trinidad Topes, Montecristo Dantés and Romeo y Julieta Capuletos
Trinidad, Montecristo and Romeo y Julieta are the three brands selected by Habanos, S.A. for these Ediciones Limitadas (Limited Editions) 2016 and will be arriving to the different points of sales worldwide in the coming weeks.
The Ediciones Limitadas – Limited Editions- of Habanos* are appreciated and expected by the aficionados every year. These Ediciones are special because their vitolas do not exist in the regular range of sizes of the brand portfolio. They are also distinguished by a careful selection of all their leaves – wrapper, filler and binder -, which have been aged for a period of at least 2 years. The dark wrapper dressing these Habanos, coming from the highest levels on the shade grown black tobacco plant, is another characteristic that identifies them, as this wrapper is darker than the one of the vitolas in the regular range of the brand.
All Habanos of these Ediciones Limitadas are made “Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga” (“Totally handmade with Long Filler”) and with leaves selected in very small quantities from the Vuelta Abajo* zone, in the region of Pinar del Río*, Cuba. These Habanos have been made by Cuban expert cigar rollers, willing to meet the expectations of the most demanding Habano enthusiasts.
Ediciones Limitadas 2016 (Limited Editions)
Topes (56 ring gauge x 125 mm length).
This vitola is also unique in the range of sizes of Habanos; it will be the brand’s heaviest ring gauge after Trinidad Vigía (54 x110 mm), showing the brand’s clear trend of filling out its traditional portfolio with new heavy ring gauge benchmarks. Trinidad Topes, with medium strength flavour, is presented in a 12-unit Semi Boîte Nature case.
Montecristo Dantés (48 ring gauge by 167 mm length).
This is a heavy to medium ring gauge Habano, with an elegant format and medium to full strength flavour. In addition, this Habano is the first “Hermoso” (48 ring gauge) launched in the Montecristo brand. This Limited Edition is presented in a special 10-unit case.
Romeo y Julieta Capuletos (53 ring gauge x 153 mm length).
For the very first time, the vitola de galera “Sobresalientes” is launched with Capuletos, totally unprecedented in the Habanos portfolio. Enthusiasts will be able to enjoy a balanced, aromatic blend from the brand in a completely new format with strength flavor.
