When JR Cigar opened its first shop on 6th Avenue and 46th Street in New York City fifty years ago, a sign on the window said, “World’s Largest Cigar Store”. This was a very bold statement, because it was very small in comparison to other cigar shops in the city during this time period. This ambitious prophecy turned out to be true in the long run, because throughout the following decades of enormous growth, we did indeed become the biggest and best suppliers of cigars, cigar accessories, and everything else tobacco related on the planet. Now, to help us celebrate our milestone 50th anniversary, Altadis U.S.A., in collaboration with brand ambassador and famous master blender Rafael Nodal, has created a very special limited-edition offering called the Romeo y Julieta Edicion Limitada Rothchilde JR 50th Cigar. To provide a modern expression of this iconic Cuban-heritage brand, Nodal and his team of highly skilled blenders and rollers fashioned these extraordinary handmade premium cigars with a gorgeous and flavorful Criollo Mexicano wrapper, a tasty broadleaf binder, and a core of expertly aged Nicaraguan and Dominican long filler tobaccos. The goal of this project was to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of JR Cigar with a very special robust medium bodied blend that could be enjoyed by smokers of all experience levels. And, with smooth complex flavors of spice, roasted nuts, dark roast coffee, cedar, and creamy caramel, it’s safe to say that Nodal and company have accomplished this task with flying colors! We are honored to add this exquisite Romeo blend to our enormously popular portfolio of premium cigars made exclusively for JR Cigar, and we think you’ll savor every moment of this flawlessly rolled, slow burning Rothschilde. However, only 6,000 cigars (500 boxes) of 12 were ever produced, so you’ll have to order yours ASAP, so that you don’t miss out on this luxurious once in a lifetime smoke.
