Romeo by Romeo y Julieta, San Andrés

Over the last few years, Altadis has embraced the spirit of collaboration when it came to expanding their catalog. One collabo that has served them well is the one with the hottest name, blender and manufacturer in the cigar industry, A.J. Fernandez. For the Romeo by Romeo y Julieta San Andrés, Fernandez teamed up with Altadis’ own Raphael Nodal of Aging Room to give us a medium-to-full bodied cigar sporting the wildly popular wrapper leaf from Mexico.

Manufacturer: Tabacalera Fernandez, Nicaragua
Wrapper: Mexican San Andrés
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua, Dominican
Vitola: 6 x 54, Toro
Purchased From: Casa de Montecristo, Nashville
Price: $9.00
Notes: Rustic, toothy wrapper. Expected San Andrés sweet notes that are cut by a tangy Dominican component. Meaty undertones into the 2nd third with a clove and nutty finish.
