Romeo y Julieta Medallas de Oro— An Historical Smoke!
Romeo y Julieta is undoubtedly one of the most recognized premium handmade cigar brands in the world. Founded in Cuba in 1875, the popularity of the brand kept increasing throughout the 19th and early 20th century. It soon became the choice stick of such notables as the famous Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, and my Uncle Max, who actually took up the hobby to avoid mosquitos while he was sitting in his backyard… but that’s a story for another time!
At the peak of its fame in the early years from 1885 to 1900, numerous gold coins of excellence were awarded to the brand at World’s Fair tasting exhibitions in Antwerp, Brussels, Melbourne, Paris, and Jerusalem. Now, in honor of this monumental era in the company’s early history, Altadis USA, responsible for many of the world’s most renowned brands including Montecristo and H.Upmann, just to name a few, proudly present the exciting new Romeo y Julieta Medallas De Oro cigar.
Expertly handcrafted in the Dominican Republic, this gem pairs a gorgeous reddish-brown Habana 2000 wrapper (beloved for its earthy Cuban-style character), with a rare Dominican binder, and aged long filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Honduras. This exquisite recipe results in a smoke that is bold and sophisticated yet incredibly smooth. Taking the aficionado on a whimsical journey back to Romeo’s early days, the flawlessly constructed Medallas De Oro soothes the palate with fragrant notes of coffee, nuts, sweet spice, leather, and cocoa, along with a naturally sweet aged tobacco aroma.
Featured in three of the industry’s most popular sizes that include the Churchill, Robusto, and Toro, Medallas De Oro will surely please a wide array of smokers. And, to display luxury both inside and out, these celebratory cigars come beautifully banded and appointed to stunning handcrafted boxes of 15 with artisan renderings of the brands prestigious awards.
