R&J’s gold standard

Romeo y Julieta, one of the oldest and most recognisable cigar brands in the world, has introduced a new line, called Línea de Oro, to the UK market.

This new línea will eventually consist of three sizes, with two now launched in the UK and the third to follow shortly.  The cigars are available now from UK Havana Cigar Specialists, selected Habanos Points, restaurants, hotels and clubs.

All three sizes are unique to the línea and have been blended to a medium to full taste, a step up from the famous medium bodied blend of the classic range.

They are presented in red lacquered boxes containing 20 cigars, with each one dressed in a bespoke band bearing the name of the individual size and a unique golden foot band.

The cigars were first showcased in 2020 at the Festival del Habano XXII in Havana.  The launch was originally intended to coincide with the iconic brand’s 145th anniversary but was delayed due to the ongoing pandemic.

The Linea de Oro is also notable as the first time that Romeo y Julieta has created a new línea, in a new flavour profile, within the standard portfolio.

These Havanas have been made “Totalmente a mano con tripa larga” – Totally Handmade with Long Filler – after painstaking selection of the wrapper, filler and binder leaves from vegas located in the most prestigious tobacco growing region of Cuba.

We hope you agree that they are also a wonderful way to welcome in the new year.

The two vitolas that have now been launched in the UK are.
