JR Cigar is celebrating its 50th anniversary with a very special cigar release. The Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada JR 50th is a cigar handcrafted in the Dominican Republic at Tabacalera de Garcia and rolled with a variety of aged tobacco from four different countries.
This special edition Romeo y Julieta was made in collaboration with Altadis U.S.A. The Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada JR 50th feature Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos that give the cigar a nutty and zesty core. The binder is a rich flavorful Connecticut Broadleaf and the cigar finishes with an exquisite Criollo Mexicano wrapper. The result is a complex and bold smoke that offers flavor transitions with each puff. According to JR Cigar, the Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada JR 50th has notes of pepper and spice that combine with nuances of rich chocolate to create an intense, yet smooth and refined, smoking experience.
“We are incredibly fortunate to work with JR Cigar on this momentous project,” says Rafael Nodal, head of product capability for Altadis U.S.A. “From its complex blend, to its packaging and even the band, Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada JR 50th is the perfect cigar to launch this year-long celebration. We are looking forward to many more years of working with the JR team.”
The Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada JR 50th comes in 12-count boxes in one size: a 5 x 54 Rothchilde. Each cigar comes in a red tube that is packaged in a rich red and gold box. Only 500 boxes of this exclusive limited release are being made.
This cigar will be available exclusively at JRCigars.com beginning Feb. 22, 2021.
