The Romeo y Julieta is a classic looking habano smoke . This is a cigar that needs a good hour, with uninterrupted time in your favorite chair. I smoked it on a pleasant cooler Los Angeles afternoon. Impressive looking with an attractive wrapper with an oily feel. Let’s do it and smoke away.
130 mm, ring gauge 55 : Habano
It started with creamy note of chocolate and almonds. Very smooth and flavorful but I expected a more spicy start. Very easy draw , medium in scope, not much heat.
After the first third still very smooth and the nutty profile hangs with us. Medium with perhaps a slight pepper aftertaste .
As we approach the end of the smoke, the burn becomes uneven which impact the appearance for sure.
It also got somewhat bitter which knocked the overall experience down a peg.
Overall a top flight smoke with a couple of minor imperfections . Here are my final numbers and rating.
Appearance and construction : 4.0 out of 5
Flavor, taste and aroma: 4 out of 5
Overall impression: 4 out of 5
If this smoke is available grab it.
