Two barber pole versions of Altadis U.S.A.’s popular Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real line are heading to stores today.

The Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real Twisted is offered in two sizes—Twisted Toro (6 x 54, $9) and Twisted Love Story (4 1/4 x 46, $8), both of which are sold in boxes of 25 cigars.

Each cigar uses a barber pole design on the exterior, a process by which two wrappers are rolled together at a slight angle to produce an alternating design that looks like the stripes of a barber’s pole. Those two wrappers are Ecuadorian Connecticut shade and habano. Underneath is a Nicaraguan binder over filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.

Like the original Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real line, it is made at Tabacalera de García in La Romana, Dominicana Republic.
