Coming Soon – The exciting new Romeo San Andrés by Romeo y Julieta Cigars
Set for release this March, Altadis U.S.A. is almost ready to launch their latest installment to the famous Romeo by Romeo y Julieta line. The exciting new Romeo San Andrés by Romeo y Julieta will introduce a San Andrés wrapper to a blend of aged Nicaraguan and Dominican fillers and a sturdy Nicaraguan binder. The company calls it “medium to full in body, and bountiful in both flavor and aroma.” It’s also a collaboration between Rafael Nodal and AJ Fernandez, two of the hottest names in boutique style premium handmade cigars.
This new Romeo brand is skewed toward the newer generation of cigar enthusiasts that enjoy a bolder smoke, and no two master blenders can accomplish this task better than Nodal and Fernandez.
For Nodal, of Aging Room Cigars fame, this is the second major project he has been involved with since joining Altadis U.S.A. His first milestone was the TTT Trinidad Santiago, a complex, perfectly balanced, medium to full-bodied blend brimming with lush notes of cocoa, various spices, leather, toasted almonds, and a zesty peppery finish.
On the other hand, AJ Fernandez is no stranger to the Altadis marque with line extensions to such brands such as Montecristo, H. Upmann, Gispert, and Romeo y Juliromeo eta. With all these brands Fernandez adds his unique blending style steeped in Cuban tradition to create a series of contemporary blends that put a modern spin on these age- old classics.
Altadis USA aside, the dynamic stogy duo of Nodal and Fernandez are no strangers to each other as they joined forces to create the wildly popular and top-rated Aging Room Pelo de Oro cigars back in 2016.
According to Nodal, “San Andrés is arguably one of the best wrappers in the market, for It has unique characteristics and the ability to enhance a blend if fermented correctly. As for AJ, he has worked with this exceptional leaf in the past and concurs with Nodal’s initial impressions.
Romeo San Andrés by Romeo y Julieta will be available in 20-count boxes of four popular sizes including the Robusto (5 x 50), Toro (6 x 54), Pirámides (6 1/8 by 52), and the Short Magnum (5 1/2 by 60).
With Altadis USA, Nodal, and Senor Fernandez at the helm, Romeo San Andrés by Romeo y Julieta promises to be a luxury smoke of exceptional quality and taste that will become a staple in tons of full-flavored cigar aficionado’s humidors.
