Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real Cigars
The world-famous Romeo y Julieta brand has a storied past that dates back to Havana Cuba, circa 1875. While it still remains one of Cuba’s largest cigar brands, now under government control, the original pre- Cuban revolution operation was moved to the Dominican Republic, where it’s still produced for the American market under the direction of Altadis U.S.A.
Produced in the original Dominican factory in La Romana, Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real cigars stand out as one of the most popular offerings in the entire brand portfolio, and received a well deserved 91-rating from Cigar Aficionado.
Reserve Real cigars are billed as a smoother, creamier version of the 1875 series; the first non-Cuban Romeo offering that graced the Dominican shores. This is due in large part to replacing the signature Indonesian wrapper found in 1875, with a silky-smooth Ecuadorian seed Connecticut shade leaf. This Connecticut crown really tones down the strength of the bold Nicaraguan tobaccos used for the binder and most of a long-filler blend that’s laced with a few Dominican leaves.
Fans of the original Romeo y Julieta 1875 should enjoy this rich velvety Connecticut version, for its also medium-bodied in strength, and introduces its own equally compelling flavors of coffee, leather, wood, and hints of chocolate, punctuated with a rich tobacco sweetness.
