New Romeo y Julieta Robusto

This new cigar was introduced during the welcome at the Habanos Festival that just took place in Havana. ┬áThe new “Wide Churchill” is a 50 ring gauge and 5 inch long cigar that, in my opinion, may as well be called a Robusto. As I’ve said before, I am a big fan of this format because of the consistency of construction quality from cigar to cigar and the slightly larger than average ring gauge tends to give you a rounder, smoother and more full bodied array of flavors.

Not much has been reported about the feedback on this new member of the Romeo family because the majority of the new release attention was centered around the much anticipated Cohiba Behike. I’m hoping the we will be seeing the next step taken to give followers of the Romeo line a slightly more complex cigar while keeping the same fundamental profile.
