“Altadis U.S.A.” is producing its 1st Nicaraguan-made “Romeo y Julieta” cigar. “Romeo 505 Nicaragua“, named after Nicaragua’s calling code, will join the Romeo by Romeo y Julieta line as a non-Cuban Romeo y Julieta brand, as the 3rd of the Romeo line that started in 2013 by Altadis after:
– Romeo Anejo (Connecticut wrapper),
– Romeo, a duo between Altadis & Rafael Nodal (Boutique Blends).
Introduced at the IPCPR trade show (International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers) in July 2016, it will be fully released this month in the market. Manufactured at “Fabrica de Puro Plasencia Cigars“, “Romeo 505 Nicaragua” is offered in four sizes, all of which are box pressed. Each cigar will cost around $10, depending on the size, and come packaged in boxes of 20.
In a recent press conference, a spokesperson of the company said: “We’re devilishly thrilled to introduce the Romeo 505 Nicaragua—the ‘rebel child’ of the family—for its notoriously Nicaraguan zest, and a medium to full-bodied punch, packed with earthy, toasty notes of dried fruit, wood and leather. It’s a first- of-its-kind among a century-old, Romeo y Julieta line that is steeped in tradition. Cheeky but true, Romeo 505 Nicaragua was born to stand out and make a statement.”
