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.
This Cuban cigar is presented in the all-new Triangulares vitola, measuring 56 ring gauge by 5 ⅜ inches, and sporting a beautiful piramides shape. Unlike the rest of the Romeo y Julieta collection, the Linea de Oro will offer a medium-to-full-strength smoke.
The first third continues with fine wood, together with citrus fruits and white pepper, the latter, however, is now perceivable mainly in the aftertaste. In the middle third, citrus is confirmed, as well as the fine wood and white pepper, which now have moved to the foreground. There are also hints of milk chocolate, with a touch of hazelnut present. The last third of the smoke confirms the flavor profile, and the strength doesn’t change.
