Altadis USA is on a hot streak with almost no end in sight. This is largely do in part to the shake up they have been instituting over the past year, placing Rob Norris as CEO who in turn hired the legendary Rafael Nodal as the head of tobacco capability. Together, they are bringing their brands into the 21st century by not only creating new exciting cigars at their home factory, but also working with some of the most innovative minds in the cigar world. When they wished to craft a bold, Nicaraguan version of Romeo y Julieta, they turned to one of the most knowledgeable families in the industry, the Plasencia family.

 The Romeo 505 takes its name from the country phone code of Nicaragua. Nestor Plasencia wanted this puro to be the epitome of a bold Nicaraguan cigar. Each layer uses only the finest aged tobaccos from Esteli, Jalapa, and Condega. With each puff, this cigar delivers intense notes of spice, nuts and coffee beans. Its box press shape provides a nice even burn and open draw.

 While Romeo y Julieta has always been a fan favorite, this may be the best one thus far. Its construction is nearly perfect, its profile intense and complex, and its aroma is smooth and enticing. If this is what the future holds for the Romeo brand, we should all be very excited.
