Altadis U.S.A has begun shipping the Romeo by Romeo y Julieta Magnum. This is a 60 x 6 version of the Romeo by Romeo y Julieta.
“Made with the finest tobaccos carefully selected and delicately aged, Romeo cigars are meticulously crafted at the famed Tabacalera de García factory,” said Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability for Tabacalera USA in a press release.“ This new Romeo is for those adult connoisseurs who understand that bigger sometimes really is better.”
Nodal added, “The slightly mellow Dominican binder works harmoniously with the bold (dark Ecuadorian) wrapper, and the unique filler blend of Dominican tobaccos completes this wonderfully complex full-bodied cigar that culminates in an unforgettable smoking experience.”
This is not the first time the Romeo by Romeo y Julieta has had a 60 x 6 offering. In 2013, Altadis unveiled a limited edition 60 x 6 size for Romeo by Romeo y Julieta known as the Gran Bully. While the same size, the Gran Bully was said to be different in that it had an amped up blend. In addition, the Gran Bully had special packaging different from the rest of the Romeo lines. The Magnum keeps to the same packaging found on the other vitolas.
The Romeo y Romeo y Julieta Magnum is presented in 20-count boxes. Pricing is set at $10.85 per cigar.
