For the 145th anniversary of the Romeo y Julieta brand, Habanos S.A. created the Línea de Oro, translated “Gold Line”, and debuted it at the Festival del Habano XXII. The box itself has stained a beautiful shade of red with gold trimmings, and the Romeo y Julieta logo, in the form of a golden medallion, is embedded in the lid.
Opening up the box, the cigars themselves feature bands that started with the traditional band design and then modified to use gold as the dominant color. Coming in three sizes—Dianas, Hidalgos, or Nobles—the name of each respective vitola is featured along the bottom of the top band. A secondary band around the foot is embossed with LINEA DE ORO and another Romeo y Julieta logo along the side.
At the beginning of 2022, the first boxes of the Linea de Oro reached markets worldwide. This release underlines the choice of Habanos SA to carve out a super premium segment within the portfolio of their global brands.
The Hidalgos offers a very complex and satisfying smoke. It delivers aromas of aged wood, white pepper, and roasted coffee beans. In the second half, it becomes slightly spicier on the palate with an evolution that brings notes of leather and walnut to the flavor profile.
