ROMEO Y JULIETA CIGARS
This brand was developed in 1875 by Innocencio Alvarez and Mannin Garcia and immediately showed it's quality by winning gold medals in four international exhibitions between 1885 and 1900. It was, however, after it's acquisition in 1903 by Jose Rodriguez Fernandez that it really started to seriously advance. Strikingly named after William Shakespeare's tragedy this brand offers an extensive range of shapes and sizes.Rich and full of flavour, these cigars are medium to strong, filling the palate with creamy mocha and honeyed cinnamon sensations. Surprisingly aromatic with perfumed cedar notes.Having experienced these striking cigars you will understand why the Romeo y Julieta brand is one of the most widely known and appreciated in the world today.

Aged Habano cigars taste different to the equivalent recent production. It is an acquired taste and not for beginners. There are auctions for thousands of dollars for cigars which date pre-embargo. There are very high prices paid for each decade after that. The cigars we are offering have matured a few years. The oldest are from 1998 and the youngest are from 2003.These cigars have matured in Cuba and have just been inspected for quality by Habanos and then in our humidor by us. A few of our VIP clients have had some and have already bought them in batches. We will soon run out of these and have no idea if and when we will get more. Although based on the comments by our customers, and especially by our long time customers, we will ask for more.Why smoke a matured cigar? This is what our supplier says, " During the early years the cigar is left to mature the general flavor remains but as the nicotine and ammonia disappear the cigar "mellows" and the flavor is less harsh" .As we said these cigars are for connoisseurs, and to them this is a treat. Enjoy.Note: Although the system states otherwise the codes are guaranteed for these boxes.
