Tasting Note

The House of Altadis U.S.A. and the House of Boutique Blends saw an unlikely union of sorts when they released the Romeo by Romeo y Julieta Aging Room Small Batch F25. The star-crossed brand was a collaboration between Rafael Nodal (co-owner of Boutique Blends) and cigar giant Altadis, which is in control of the iconic Romeo y Julieta portfolio. Altadis decided to let Nodal try his hand at blending his own version of Romeo. The result was Romeo by Romeo y Julieta Aging Room, made in the Dominican Republic at Tabacalera Palma where the core Aging Room cigars are rolled. Made in small quantities, the cigars use only Dominican tobacco, most of which is from Cuban seeds grown in the Cibao Valley, a region known for its deep topsoil and distinct tobacco.
