JR Cigar has announced that it will be kicking off its 50th Anniversary celebration by teaming up with Altadis U.S.A. with the release of Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada JR 50th.
“We are incredibly fortunate to work with JR Cigar on this momentous project,” said Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability for Altadis U.S.A. “From its complex blend, to its packaging and even the band, Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada JR 50th is the perfect cigar to launch this year-long celebration. We are looking forward to many more years of working with the JR team,” Nodal said.
The Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada JR 50th is handcrafted in the Dominican Republic at Tabacalera de Garcia and rolled with a variety of aged tobaccos from four different countries. It starts with Dominican and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos for a nutty and zesty core. The binder is a rich and flavorful Connecticut Broadleaf, while the finishing touch is an exquisite Criollo Mexicano wrapper.
Offered in a 12-count box, Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada JR 50th is available in one size: 5 X 54 Rothchilde ($15.00 per cigar; $180.00 per box). Only 500 boxes of this exclusive limited release are being made.
This cigar will be available starting Monday, February 22, exclusively on the JR Cigar website.
