Romeo shows his age
For 14 decades, 140 years, Romeo y Julieta has represented one of the finest names in premium cigars. From their beginnings as a humble brand in Cuba, to their current status as a household name across the world, Romeo y Julieta has only improved with every year that’s passed. Today, we shine the spotlight on one of Romeo’s fullest-bodied offerings to date: Romeo Anejo, a 91-rated blend handmade in the Dominican Republic.
Featuring a four-country blend of fine, hand-selected tobaccos, Romeo Anejo starts things off with a toothy and thick Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Holding everything together is a Dominican binder overtop Nicaraguan and Honduran long-fillers. From the word go, this cigar delights with rich notes of cedar and sweet tobacco. It’s a fine blend from a fine brand, and one that should be a no-brainer for any cigar enthusiast worth their salt.
Romeo Anejo has received a stunning 91-rating, noting: “An easy draw delivers lots of earthy, woody smoke to the palate.”
