JR Cigars has announced the Romeo y Julieta Pasión. Handcrafted in Honduras, this cigar is manufactured at the Flor de Copan factory, a hidden gem nestled in the hills of Santa Rosa, that has been crafting some of the most well-known cigar brands for years.
“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,” said 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,” he said.
Pasión begins with a core of fully aged Dominican and Honduran filler, held together by a thick USA binder and finished with a seamless Cuban-seed Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. These medium-bodied cigars will captivate your senses with a sweet aroma and exceptionally smooth flavors of leather, wood, cinnamon, coffee and baking spices.
Offered in 20-count boxes, Romeo y Julieta Pasión is available in four sizes: a 6.12 x 54 Belicoso ($9.50 per cigar, $151.95 per box); 6 x 60 Magnum ($9.75 per cigar, $155.95 per box); 5.50 x 48 Robusto ($9.00 per cigar, $143.95 per box); and 6 x 52 Toro ($9.25 per cigar, $147.95 per box).
All will be available starting on May 1st exclusively at www.JRcigars.com
