- Habanos Añejados have been aged in Cuba, in perfect conditions of preservation, for a minimum of five years
- The concept “Añejado” (Aged) is presented for the first time with two new launchings: Romeo y Julieta Pirámides Añejados and Montecristo Churchills Añejados. Besides, both of them are new formats in these brands
[tippy title="Acopio y Beneficio"]The process of gathering and improving tobacco leaves after they are harvested up to the point when they are placed in bales to mature.[/tippy] introduces for the first time two new launchings of Habanos Añejados. Habanos already rolled, aged in Cuba for 5 years or more, in perfect conditions of preservation, which has enabled them to gain shades and complexity without losing their initial organoleptic characteristics.
The launching of Habanos Añejados takes place with two vitolas: Romeo y Julieta Pirámides Añejados (52 ring gauge x 156 mm long) and Montecristo Churchills Añejados (47 ring gauge x 178 mm long). Both are new products presented as a special edition in limited quantities which make them unique. In both cases, the Habanos have undergone an ageing process of between 5 and 8 years.
Through the aging process the cigars have become rounder and mellower to the palate, getting touches of wood taste thanks to the years of rest with the cedar protecting it.
The Romeo y Julieta Pirámides Añejados and Montecristo Churchills Añejados launchings are a double novelty: due to the process of ageing as well as the introduction of formats which are not included in the regular portfolio of both brands.
Habanos Añejados are commercialized in their original boxes, which remained unlabeled during the entire ageing process and that have been dressed with the corresponding labelling of each brand to be introduced to the market.
These Habanos are presented in labelled boxes, with double ring, external stick with the legend “Añejados” and with a vitolina describing the concept. On the bottom of the box the date when the Habanos were made can be verified. “Revisado” (Checked)is also stamped on the bottom of the box, since 100% of the boxes have been opened and all the cigars have been checked one by one.
Romeo y Julieta Pirámides Añejados and Montecristo Churchills Añejados will be available at the outlets around the world during the first quarter of 2015.
