Habanos, S.A. through its Asia distributors, Pacific Cigar Co. and Infifon HK Ltd., presents its new special production, Romeo y Julieta Maravillas 8 (55 ring gauge x 155 mm length), to commemorate the coming Chinese New Year. A vitola chosen to celebrate this event with a limited edition.
This launch is released in a case designed for the occasion that features the special engraving of a rat, the next Chinese New Year’s animal sign. This is an 8-unit box of Habanos made „Totalmente a Mano con Tripa Larga“– totally by hand with Long Filler, after a selection of wrapper, filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo area in the Pinar del Río region. Romeo y Julieta Maravillas 8, with its “vitola de galera” – factory name – “Maravillas No. 3”, was used in a limited edition in 2012 under the Montecristo brand.
The presentation will take place at two different events on 13th and 14th of November at The Kerry Hotel in Hong Kong. On each day, the 120 guests attending will not only taste this classic medium-strength Habano, but will also enjoy views of the city’s port.
