Altadis introduces the new ROMEO by Romeo y Julieta

Altadis USA is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of the latest act in this enduring love story - ROMEO by Romeo y Julieta.

A Romeo y Julieta cigar unlike any to come before!

Ever since 1875, cigar aficionados have been passionate about Romeo y Julieta.

As one of the premium cigar world's best-known and most highly trusted brands, Romeo y Julieta has always been revered for its consistently excellent, mild smokes.

Now, Romeo brings new excitement to the contemporary aficionado with this line of modern, fuller-bodied cigars.

The new cigar will be available at retail tobacconists in May.

Robust, full-bodied and rich in complex flavor nuances, Romeo is meticulously crafted at the famed Tabacalera de Garcia in the Dominican Republic by the skilled hands of the factory's most accomplished artisans, each with decades of expertise, chosen specifically to create this uncommon cigar.

The new cigar will be available in four sizes: Churchill, Piramide, Robusto and Toro.

We’ve made an early introduction of the new Romeo cigar at the TAA meeting and start presenting the brand during the week of April 23.

Romeo by Romeo y Julieta - a spectacular smokedestined to set a new trend in luxury cigars.

Is Tabacalera de Garcia related to Don Pepin Garcia?

I doubt it. Pepe Garcia established Tabacalera de Garcia in 1971 in the first Industrial Free Zone of the Dominican Republic located in La Romana. Today the Dominican Republic is the world’s largest exporter of premium handmade cigars. Tabacalera de Garcia, a subsidiary of Altadis USA, is the largest handmade cigar factory in the world and makers of the finest Dominican cigars, unequalled in their quality and consistency.

A modern look to the box. The ring looks a little to contemporary for my taste.

I have not smoked one yet so I'm hoping they're good. I don't care much about the band, or any cigar band, because I don't smoke them! :D

Some bands are very ornate and look great! This one is a little on the "modern side.

Those new ROMEOs just showed up on the shelf at Party Source in the last couple days. I saw them and decided to wait til back from vacation and see what the other local yokel smokers think of 'em. Usually I buy one or two of everything new as it comes in--okay, NOT the $20 a stick stuff Like Rocky Patel 50s.
