A tasty new cigar, the Romeo cigars by Romeo y Julieta, is just arriving at select cigar shops. Sizes currently being made at this time are a Robusto 5″ x 54, Churchill 7″ x 56, Toro 6″ x 54 and Piramide 6″ 1/8 x 52 We are told that a special team at Tabacalera de Garcia was chosen to create the Romeo cigar due to it’s complexity. Romeo offers you a more full bodied, deeper richer smoke, than the other cigars in the well known Romeo y Juliet line and one of the reasons we think is their use of a Ecuadorian Habano for the wrapper. Substantial ring sizes on all of these show a trend towards a more “Hefty sized” smoke we’ve been seeing more and more of.
Here is what Romeo and Julieta has to say about the tobacco used in the Romeo cigars:
Wrapper: Select Dark Ecuadorian Habano: The natural cloud cover of the Ecuadorian tobacco growing region combined with the rich volcanic soil yields a lovely, supple and well burning leaf. This wrappers are selected for their dark, rich color and robust taste.
Binder: Select Dominican Olor: A specially selected Olor binder is mountain grown. The high humidity and fresh morning breezes result in a naturally sweet binder tobacco which adds balance and character. The alluvial porosity of the soil along with its unique mineral content produces a binder with excellent combustion and a full round flavor.
Filler: Blend of select Domincan Piloto and Olor tobaccos: Specially selected Dominican Piloto tobaccos grown in the south along the winding river beds known for soil rich on minerals. Blended with a special selection of dark Olor tobaccos grown in low lying rich soils combined together for a complex, full bodied blend and a rich tasting cigar with a lovely white ash.
