Romeo 505 Nicaragua is the first Romeo y Julieta cigar made in Nicaragua with all Nicaraguan tobaccos. The 505 in the name refers to the country’s area code, and the new Romeo Nicaragua is a welcomed addition to the Romeo by Romeo line.
Altadis and their “Grupo de Maestros” blending team have developed these dark Romeos with a Habano Jalapa wrapper and binder, and Habano leaves in the filler from Esteli, Condega and Jalapa. This blend has created a richer, fuller bodied smoke for Romeo y Julieta, which has been around for decades thanks to its excellent quality of cigars. This richer, fuller bodied smoke is a great addition to a brand that has been known for its superb quality since the year 1875.
The Romeo 505 Nicaragua by Romeo Y Julieta has received a superb 91-rating from Cigar Aficionado in their July 2017 issue!
