Romeo y Julieta Eternal
It’s an ancient brand with an ancient story – one that continues with each cigar rolled on the tables of the torcedores. In the case of the Romeo y Julieta Eternal, the cigars are created at the Plasencia factory in Nicaragua. While Romeo y Julieta (or “RyJ” as it’s often abbreviated) has its main production center for US-bound cigars in the Dominican Republic, these smokes are a bit of a collaboration. It’s also good to note that these are made by a separate team from those made in Cuba, which, for reasons of the Cuban embargo, can’t be sold in the U.S. at this time.
But enough about the past – what’s happening with these Romeo y Julieta Eternal cigars in the present?
Well, they’re a Nicaraguan puro made with Plasencia tobacco. The Plasencias are one of the biggest tobacco growers in the world, and RyJ chose a fine partner for the blend. With fields in Condega, Estelí, Jalapa, and Ometepe, the Plasencias have a fine variety of tobaccos to choose from. For this blend, the thing you’ll probably notice most is the two-year aged Maduro wrapper that graces the cigar’s outer layer. As Rafael Nodal, RyJ’s head of product capability noted, this is twice the normal time that a Maduro leaf is generally allowed to develop. The result for the Romeo y Julieta Eternal cigar should be a more complex and mature flavor profile. That said, there’s no doubt that this one starts with a classic pepper kick before progressing into more interesting notes.
This is a limited edition cigar, so it’s unclear how long it will be around on the shelves of retailers. One thing’s for sure, though – the Romeo y Julieta story will be continuing long after it’s gone.
One cigar in the box with a golden band is a nod to the company’s romantic history, and also is a sign of the never-ending commitment it takes to maintain a cigar brand like this one.
