Cigar News: Romeo y Julieta Envy Cigar Headed for Retail in December
Limited Edition Release is Handcrafted by the Plasencia Family
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.
“This blend was in the making for quite some time because we knew the aging process would bring out amazing notes from these Nicaraguan tobaccos,” said Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability. “Once perfectly aged, the rest was a matter of finding the ideal size to capture and display them to the fullest! So here it is, this cigar is absolutely fantastic!”
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 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
