FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – One of the premium cigar world’s most classic brands is getting bigger. With wide ring gauges and a world of rich flavor, the smooth and full-flavored Romeo by Romeo y Julieta is adding a 60 x 6 Magnum size. The new, bigger Romeo began shipping to retailers Friday, June 12.
Cigar enthusiasts may recall that Romeo by Romeo y Julieta was Cigar Aficionado’s No.3 cigar of the year in 2012 with a 93 rating.
“Made with the finest tobaccos carefully selected and delicately aged, Romeo cigars are meticulously crafted at the famed Tabacalera de García factory,” said Rafael Nodal, Head of Product Capability for Tabacalera USA. “This new Romeo is for those adult connoisseurs who understand that bigger sometimes really is better.”
The select Ecuadorian Habano wrapper is handpicked for its dark, rich color and robust taste, Nodal said. “The slightly mellow Dominican binder works harmoniously with the bold wrapper, and the unique filler blend of Dominican tobaccos completes this wonderfully complex full-bodied cigar that culminates in an unforgettable smoking experience,” he said.
