Habanos S.A. released the Romeo y Julieta Cupidos in the last quarter of 2023, although its release on the market had been scheduled for 2022. It is distributed worldwide through the Casa del Habano and Habano Specialist stores.
A unique vitola de galera was created called Veronas (55x148mm), whose name recalls the city of Verona, in the North East of Italy, where the events of Shakespeare’s opera “Romeo y Juliet” occur. The cigars are sold in an elegant 20-count box.
The cigar is dressed in a bright Colorado wrapper with brown reflections. It is smooth to the touch with light veining. The construction appears excellent, and even the weight of the cigar suggests the use of a generous amount of tobacco.

Romeo y Julieta Cupidos: strong hints of dry floral nuances are perceptible in the cold draw, followed by less intense notes of wood and nuts.
Overall, the Romeo y Julieta Cupidos offers an interesting and persuasive smoke due to the creaminess on the palate, its sweetness, and well-balanced aromas. The flavor profile is round, with well-defined notes that combine very well with each other, all with a strength of medium intensity.
Unfortunately, the astringency in the last third and a few too many burn corrections negatively impact the score from an otherwise convincing smoke.
