Altadis USA has made huge strides in the past few years. By bringing Rafael Nodal on board they have stunned the cigar world by creating new and unique blends that no one thought they were capable of before. They have even begun a long lasting relationship with one of Nicaragua’s hottest blenders, AJ Fernandez. AJ has created several new blends for Altadis including 3 new Montecristos, a new H.Upmann and Gispert and of course a brand new Romeo.
The Romeo By AJ is a stunning full bodied cigar with flawless construction and a complex profile. IT is hand rolled in AJs factory in the heart of Esteli, Nicaragua. It is crafted with vintage Nicaraguan filler tobaccos and a hearty Nicaraguan binder. It is then cloaked in an elegant Habana 2000 wrapper. It is bold at first, with hints of pepper and spice, followed by a smooth center, rich with notes of leather, caramel and cedar. I call this a thumb burner, because you will smoke it until your fingers burn. Its aroma is enticing, its draw is open and easy, and its burn is even all the way to the end.
While many of the new AJ blends for Altadis are general releases, we have the pleasure of keeping the Romeo Crafted by AJ all to ourselves. SO go right now to JR Cigars and pick up your box of the limited Romeo Crafted by AJ.
