Almost zero percent of you have ever had to use this information, but thanks to the Romeo 505 Nicaragua by Romeo y Julieta cigar, you now know that the telephone country code for Nicaragua is 505. If you ever wanted to prank call your favorite Nicaraguan cigar company, you’re now one step closer. Maybe phone up the Drew Estate boys and call them “silly gringos?” Or tell the Plasencias that with a little more experience, they could really become one of the premier tobacco growers in the region (they’ve been at it for five generations and grow more cigar tobacco than anyone else in the world). It’s up to you, but please tell us the story if you decide to pull off a caper. Some of those overly serious cigar makers out there could probably use to lighten up a touch.
Okay, so the Romeo 505 Nicaragua by Romeo y Julieta cigar is another collaboration. We’ve noticed the trend with a giant like RyJ is that, to really appeal to the next generation of cigar smokers, they tend to work with some of the modern blenders who are having a lot of success with that target market. In this case, it was the Plasencias, those masters of Nicaraguan tobacco cultivation. They helped the RyJ team put together a Nicaraguan puro with a wonderful spice-centered flavor built around nothing but Habano, Habano, and more Habano. The wrapper leaf is grown in Jalapa, as is the binder, while the filler blend is from the soil of Estelí, Condega, and Jalapa.
The Romeo 505 Nicaragua by Romeo y Julieta cigar puts out a nice aroma of rich cedar when cold. It then begins with leather, earth, and floral notes when first lit. The pepper spice comes into full view as you go along and enjoy the development of the medium to full-bodied smoke. As you move into the last third, you’ll get a bit more coffee and a touch of herbal flavors like anise when the tobacco really heats up. It’s a nice balanced spicy blend from some of the biggest cigar companies in the world.
