FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – “Love has its shadows,” reads the beautiful, evil eye shaped vitolina, inside the striking green Romeo y Julieta Envy cigar box. Envy is a new, limited edition release made by the Plasencia family for Altadis USA that will be shipping to cigar stores in December.

Rolled to 6”x55 dimensions, Romeo y Julieta Envy ‘Amulet’ is a masterfully handcrafted vitola that’s well-balanced and medium in body. Using an all Nicaraguan wrapper, binder, and filler recipe, notes of dark chocolate, nougat, molasses, and other sweet flavors complement its earthy essence, natural sweetness, and buttery finish.

According to ancient legend, the “evil eye” shown on the Romeo y Julieta Envy’s secondary band, is said to keep away bad energy.

According to the makers of Romeo y Julieta Envy, “The eye amulet – an ancient symbol – will keep the bad energy away.” The symbol can be seen on the green secondary cigar band “making the cigar your own personal amulet,” add the makers.

The Romeo y Julieta Envy Amulet is presented in a box of 11 cigars and will have a per-cigar MSRP of $17.50.

With the release of Romeo y Julieta Envy, the cigar-making masters who craft Romeo y Julieta cigars demonstrate they understand a thing or two about love, given the reputation of one of the world’s renowned brands – and the world’s most famous love story that inspired the brand.   CA
