1875 Connecticut Romeo and Juliet Altadis USA's Nicaragua cigars are a ground-breaking project! If you like Connecticut-shade wrappers, you're probably used to seeing them from either the Connecticut River Valley or Ecuador's natural cloud cover. You can now try a cigar wrapped in the first Nicaraguan-grown Connecticut seed tobacco, courtesy of master blenders Rafael Nodal and Nestor Plasencia. Ever. Introducing: The 1875 Connecticut Nicaragua Romeo and Juliet. This is a Nicaraguan puro made with the finest vintage binder and filler tobaccos from the renowned Plasencia farms. The cigar is wrapped in a beautiful, silky Connecticut seed wrapper.
What distinguishes this blend is that the Connecticut leaf, which is normally harvested from the rich rocky hills of the Connecticut River Valley in the United States, is grown in Nicaragua and aged for more than three years. As a result, this new cigar combines the signature earthy, spicy, sweetness of premium Nicaraguan tobaccos with the creamy smoothness of its prized Connecticut seed wrapper leaf. The Romeo y Julieta 1875 Connecticut Nicaragua combines the smooth, creamy notes typical of Connecticut-shade leaf with an extra dimension of complexity and richness that can only be produced by Nicaragua's black volcanic soil.
