October 2, 2013 — The Ediciones Limitadas -Limited Editions- of Habanos* (D.O.P) are highly appreciated and awaited every year by enthusiasts worldwide. They are characterized by vitolas -sizes- that do not appear in the usual range of the brand portfolio, and they are distinguished by a careful selection of their leaves -wrapper, filler and binder- which have been aged for a period of at least 2 years. The wrapper dressing these Habanos comes from the top leaves of the Tapado –shade grown- black Cuban tobacco plant, and is relevant characteristic that identifies these special productions. This wrapper is usually darker than the wrappers of regular range sizes of the brand.

The Ediciones Limitadas are made with the finest tobacco leaves coming from Vuelta Abajo* (D.O.P), Cuba.

Since its birth in 1875, Romeo y Julieta has become one of the best known brands of Habanos. Its roots lie in the literary tragedy of the same name by the British playwright William Shakespeare. Romeo y Julieta enjoys great international prestige and presents one of Habanos’ widest range of sizes. Romeo’s balanced and aromatic blend is appreciated by a large number of enthusiasts.

“Romeo de Luxe” is a vitola specially selected for this Edición Limitada -limited edition- , 2013. These 10 Habanos are produced “Totalmente a Mano” -Totally handmade- after an exquisite selection of wrapper, filler and binder leaves coming from the Vuelta Abajo* (D.O.P) plantations and aged at least 2 years.

Romeo de Luxe (ring gauge 52 x 162 mm in length). Capuleto is its vitola de galera -factory name- which exists just for this Edición Limitada, as it does not exist in any other Habanos brand. This is a heavy ring gauge Habano for those smokers that enjoy Habanos with the brands’ excellent burn and characteristic aroma. It provides a unique experience due to the special size as well as the selection and ageing of the leaves used for this Edición Limitada.

Romeo de Luxe presents a special case designed for this occasion, with a printed protector which enhances the historic design of the brand.

This Edición Limitada -limited edition- of 2013 has been produced in limited quantities. All the Habanos are Totalmente a Mano Tripa Larga -Totally handmade Long filler- by some of the most expert rollers of Cuba in order to create this very exclusive Habano.
