Named after Nicaragua's calling code, the Romeo 505 Nicaragua Toro Habano cigar (6" x 52) makes us think that Romeo y Julieta has found their calling in Nicaragua. The first-ever Nicaraguan puro by Romeo will take your palate for a ride. The filler blend consists of Condega, Jalapa and Esteli leaves which are topped off with a Habano wrapper grown in Jalapa. R y J used to be only known for their smoother cigars, but now they're showing that they can do full bodied blends just as we, if not better!
Very very nice medium body Cigar, kind of strong, but I can't say it's full bodied, it's medium body all the way for me. Very nice and creamy, a lot of sweetness and leathery. The draw is on the right side, but it's ok because you have to draw this one very slowly in order to get all the flavors, so the tight draw it perfect match to this cigar's nature. Very consistent flavor, no too much surprise in the good way. At about 1/3, some strange citrus flavor kick in, but it's gone after about 1/2 and back to creamy sweetness and leathery. A bit coffee latte. This cigar requires retro-hale to get all of the flavor, too light and very little flavor without retro-hale. I think this is a great cigar, I will add this to my new favorite.
