Romeo – always a gem!
Since its humble beginnings in Havana, Cuba, all the way back in 1875, the Romeo y Julieta name has been a mainstay in the industry. Producing tons of classic, Cuban-inspired cigars along with a slew of new, bold innovations under their ROMEO line, RyJ continues to stay on the tip of cigar lover’s tongues in discussions of the finer things in life. Today, we proudly shine the spotlight on the newest blend to bear the Romeo y Julieta title: Perlado.
Sneak a quick glance at this, and all you can say is wow. From the seamless Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper leaf to the simply elegant white band, this cigar is most certainly jaw-dropping. And here’s the best part: this looker performs just as well. Notes of cream and slight cedar rush forth from the Connecticut wrapper, while a tri-country blend of Colombian, Dominican, and Nicaraguan long-fillers underneath round it out with naturally sweet tobacco, hints of hay, and a crisp finish. A must-try for any lover of Cuban heritage cigars or Connecticut wrapped blends, this one’s a winner.
The true hidden gem
After the success of the new fan-favorite Romeo y Julieta Perlado and Montecristo Perlado, it was natural there’d be a successor to the throne. Today, we welcome that new cigar… sort of. Feast your eyes on the H. Upmann Perlado, a new blend that’s sure to get some attention. The bad news? This cigar was crafted in a single size, without boxes, meant to be used only for promotional purposes and special events. The good news? We got our hands on a ton of them, and in true CI fashion, we’re delivering them straight to the people.
Featuring a Sumatra Java wrapper leaf overtop US and Dominican fillers, this ultra-smooth Perlado comes in a little fuller than its brethren. Things never dip above a medium-bodied profile, though. The flavor is excellent, delivering a smooth sipper of a cigar that’s charming all the way down to the nub. In short, if you loved either of the last two Perlados, or just appreciate a good, Cuban-esque blend, you’ll find plenty more to love here.
