“Everyone, from the farmers, to those involved in the preparation of the tobacco, to the people crafting the cigars, work so passionately and with amazing enthusiasm,” said Rafael Nodal, head of product capability for Tabacalera USA, via a press release. “They talk about their lives, their families, their experiences and discuss it all with such fervor and love, it is impossible to ever forget. The passion they have for their work, for their children, for their home and life in general shows in the quality of each cigar,” he said.
The Romeo y Julieta Pasión line is available for pre-order on JRcigars.com and will begin shipping on May 1.
