It’s a year of anniversaries for Habanos SA and this year the Romeo y Julieta brand is celebrating its 145th anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, a new line by Habans SA called Romeo y Julieta Linea de Oro is being released. The cigar had its first launch at the XXII Festival de Habanos held in Cuba from February 24 to February 28th, 2019.
Romeo y Julieta consists of three thick ring gauge cigars: Dianas (5 7/10 x 52), Hidalgos (4 9/10 x 57) and Nobles (5 3/10 x 56). Each comes packaged in 20-count boxes. The boxes feature a high gloss lacquered finish on branded red-tinted sycamore wood.
The Romeo y Julieta Linea de Oro was the featured brand on the final gala night of the XXII Festival de Habano.
In addition to the Romeo y Julieta milestone, Partagas is celebrating its 175th anniversary while Montecristo is celebrating its 85th anniversary. In addition, La Casa del Habano, the Habanos, S.A. franchise arm, is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
