If you have ever enjoyed a premium cigar, there's a good chance you've enjoyed a cigar handcrafted by Altadis U.S.A. Responsible for many of the world's most renowned brands including Montecristo, Romeo y Julieta, H. Upmann, and Trinidad, Altadis U.S.A. has been crafting great cigars since 1918. Across all their brands connoisseurs have come to enjoy the consistency and well-made construction that signify Altadis U.S.A. cigars and make their cigars some of the finest time-and-time again.
I bought these on a whim, R&J are the first cigars I enjoyed when I started smoking some 15 years ago. I opened them up for a night around the fire pit with some friends and everyone of us agreed they were excellent. Smooth with a little pepper, solid construction with good draw, well thought out flavors.
I like Romeo y Juliet s, but I wouldn t purchase these again. Construction was poor. Uneven burn on 3 of the 4 cigars. The wrapper was thin and peeled off on a couple. There were long sticks in the filler. And the flavor was below average and had a lot of bite to it.
