October 14, 2013 (Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) — For generations, Romeo y Julieta has been one of the most loved and trusted brands among serious cigar smokers.
Recently, the brand has come out with a selection of bold, fuller-bodied blends favored by contemporary smokers – notably the highly rated Romeo by Romeo y Julieta and now RyJ, the brand’s first Nicaraguan puro.
A modern, dynamic smoke, RyJ by Romeo y Julieta is handmade with a rare Nicaraguan wrapper grown exclusively for the company, complemented, for added complexity and structure, by a double binder of Nicaraguan Jalapa and Esteli tobaccos and a blend of Nicaraguan Jalapa, Esteli and La Mia fillers. Spicy and intense, these leaves are among the most flavorful in the world.
This unique blend results in a bold, flavorful cigar described by the master blenders as “rich, robust and complex with deep and spicy nuances.”
The new cigar will be introduced in mid-October. The line includes a Bully Grande (54 X 5″), Toro (52 X 6 “) and Piramide (54 X 6 1/8”). Suggested retail prices range from $8.00 to $8.75.
