Cuba Creates Cigars for Women
Posted: February 1, 2011
Worldwide Cuban cigar distributor Habanos S.A. has announced the release of a cigar made especially for women: the Romeo y Julieta Julieta, a 4 ¾-inch long, 33 ring gauge petit cigar.
Habanos said the Julieta size was created not only to please female cigar smokers, but in honor of the company's female employees who are essential to the manufacture of Cuban cigars.
"In Cuba, the participation of women is indispensable in all agricultural and manufacturing processes of Habanos. In fact, many processes are carried out by the majority of women and their particular sensibility, care and knowledge contribute to the making of such unique product as the Habano," declared Habanos in an official press release.
The cigars come packaged in rounded tins of five cigars designed especially for this release.
The Julieta size was first announced at last year's Habanos festival and it's taken nearly a year later for the little smokes to be ready for the market.
Although the cigar is intended for the fairer sex, Cigar Aficionado will be smoking them anyway. Look for ratings in an upcoming issue.
