Romeo y Julieta, the largest premium cigar brand made by Altadis U.S.A. Inc., now has a fuller bodied and eye-grabbing new incarnation. Romeo by Romeo y Julieta will begin shipping early next month, and the cigar has a bold new look and completely new taste.
Traditional non-Cuban Romeo y Julietas are made with Indonesian wrappers and have a mild flavor profile. The new Romeo by Romeo y Julieta cigars are crafted with dark, Ecuadoran Habano-seed wrappers around an all-Dominican blend.
The cigar will come in four sizes, all of them considerably thick: Churchill (7 inches by 56), Toro (6 by 54), Robusto (5 by 54) and Piramides (6 1/8 by 52).
