Romeo y Julieta was selected as one of the three brands chosen to receive an Edicion Limitada. It’s the seventh time the brand has received that role since the program started in 2000 and this year featured a vitola never before seen, not just for Romeo y Julieta, but for all of Habanos S.A. itself.
The Edicion Limitada program selects three brands annually and creates cigars that are not part of each brand’s regular portfolio. In addition, the wrapper is aged for two years and oftentimes is specific as coming from higher priming wrappers.
In the case of the Romeo y Julieta Romeo de Luxe, the vitola is known as capuleto measuring 162 mm long, roughly 6 6/16 inches, by 52. In the case of the de Luxe, the cigar was offered in 10-count boxes, which began shipping in October of last year.
