The Romeo y Julieta Envy Amulet has begun arriving in stores.
It’s a limited edition 6 x 55 toro extra size that is made entirely of Nicaraguan tobaccos. Plasencia Cigars S.A. is making the Envy Amulet, which is a follow-up of sorts to the Romeo y Julieta Eternal, another cigar Plasencia made for Altadis U.S.A.
The MSRP is set at $17.50 per cigar and it is sold in boxes of 11. Production is limited to 100,00 cigars, roughly 9,090 boxes.
“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,” said Rafael Nodal, head of product capability for Tabacalera USA, 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!”
The Envy Amulet was originally scheduled to ship in December
