A bold new face to a timeless brand.Viejo, the latest addition to the Romeo y Julieta family, is a complex, fuller flavored blend.The legendary Romeo y Julieta brand emerged from Cuba in 1875. Since its inception, Romeo has gradually risen to unparalleled popularity among cigar aficionados and currently represents one of the best selling brands in the U.S. The success of this brand stems from its variety of blends and sizes, most of which are made in the Dominican Republic.The Viejo is the most exciting Romeo y Julieta line extension. Not only is it the best-looking Romeo y Julieta available, but it is also the most complex. Featuring a San Andres maduro wrapper, this cigar is perfectly accented by a multi-country blend of fillers, creating a perfect balance on the palate. The flavor boasts notes of wood and bread, provides a moderate finish, and is medium in body. Each cigar is box pressed and comes packaged in traditional boxes of 20.
As a Romeo y Julieta smoker for years I always enjoyed this line especially since I was lucky enough to partake of a few true Cubans. I received the Viejo torpedo in a sampler bundle and was I ever surprised to find this smooth and flavorful smoke. To me it over shadows the Montecristo No. 2 by a long shot. With a fine burn and a strong ash along with outstanding flavors this has become my all-time favorite bar all others.
