This December, Altadis USA will release a limited edition cigar under the Romeo y Julieta brand known as the Romeo y Julieta Envy. Perhaps most striking is the green-colored packaging used on this release.
The Romeo y Julieta Envy is a Nicaraguan puro that is being produced at the Plasencia factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. It comes in one size – a 55 x 6 Toro known as Amulet. The cigar is being presented in eleven-count boxes, and according to a story by Cigar Aficionado, production will be limited to 10,000 boxes.
In terms of the name Envy, Altadis explains: “Love has its shadows. It can inspire envy. Capturing what triggered that emotion, our signature mix of quality, skills, and passion, have transformed that feeling into a unique smoking experience built around opulent aromas and luscious notes.”
As for the vitola name Amulet, Altadis also explains “The eye amulet – an ancient symbol – will keep the bad energy away. The symbol is also included on the cigar band making the cigar your own personal amulet.”
“This blend was in the making for quite some time because we knew the aging process would bring out amazing notes from these Nicaraguan tobaccos,” says Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability, in a press release. “Once perfectly aged, the rest was a matter of finding the ideal size to capture and display them to the fullest! So here it is, this cigar is absolutely fantastic!”
Pricing for the Romeo y Julieta Envy is set at $17.50, making it one of the most premium Romeo y Julieta offerings to date.
