JR Cigar is getting an exclusive Romeo y Julieta cigar this May. In a press release, the company announced the upcoming release of Romeo y Julieta Pasión, a cigar handcrafted in Honduras and manufactured at Flor de Copan factory.
“Everyone, from the farmers, to those involved in the preparation of the tobacco, to the people crafting the cigars, work so passionately and with amazing enthusiasm,” says Rafael Nodal, head of product capability for Tabacalera USA. “They talk about their lives, their families, their experiences and discuss it all with such fervor and love, it is impossible to ever forget. The passion they have for their work, for their children, for their home and life in general shows in the quality of each cigar.”
Romeo y Julieta Pasión features fully aged Dominican and Honduran filler tobaccos and a thick U.S.A.-grown binder that finishes with a seamless Cuban-seed Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. Romeo y Julieta Pasión is a medium-bodied cigar with flavor notes of leather, wood, cinnamon, coffee and banking spices. It will come in 20-count boxes and will be available in four sizes: Belicoso (6.12 x 54), Magnum (6 x 60), Robusto (5.50 x 48), and Toro (6 x 52). MSRP per cigar ranges from $9 to $9.75.
Romeo y Julieta Pasión will be available exclusively on JRcigars.com beginning May 1, 2020.
