Following the global launch in Hong Kong during two “Vintage Hong Kong” themed nights on November 13 and 14, 2019 at the Kerry Hotel, 240 fans had the opportunity to discover this new cigar specially created for the year of the rat.
It is the first cigar specially created by Habanos SA to celebrate the Chinese New Year. It takes the format “Maravillas No. 3” with a cepo 55 for a length of 155 mm, which was used for the first time for the 2012 limited edition of Montecristo 520.
The tobaccos used for the Romeo Y Julieta Maravillas 8 were selected from the best tobacco-producing region in the world, Vuelta Abajo in Cuba, which were then rolled by hand by the best Cuban torcedors.
The “8” is the preferred figure in Chinese society, because of its link with wealth and luck, so it is more than logical to find 8 cigars inside each box.
