Santa Clara, Inc., a tobacco wholesaler associated with Altadis USA and online retailer JR Cigar has announced the next exclusive release under the company’s Crafted By series: Romeo y Julieta Crafted by Plasencia.
Romeo y Julieta Crafted by Plasencia features a Nicaraguan puro blend, with production being handled by the famed Plasencia family of cigar artisans. The box-pressed cigars are said to be full in body, attained through the use of a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper, Nicaraguan Habano binder, and all-Nicaraguan fillers.
Romeo y Julieta has been the best-selling Cuban heritage brand in the marketplace for many years, which is why Santa Clara was excited to work with Altadis U.S.A. and the Plasencia Family to create this amazing cigar.
The Plasencia Family is one of the largest growers of tobacco in Nicaragua, which allowed Santa Clara to choose from some of the best tobacos in the world to make this great cigar.
Former Crafted By cigars from Santa Clara include names such as Oliva, E.P. Carrillo, Montecristo Crafted by A.J. Fernández, and more. Smokers can expect to see the cigar’s official debut later this week at the IPCPR 2019 trade show, held in Las Vegas. Santa Clara will offer Romeo y Julieta Crafted by Plasencia in three formats (Robusto, Toro, and Piramide), with prices ranging from $8.00–$9.00 per cigar. The cigars will be ready to ship immediately following their debut.
