Not the most flavoursome of the brand and I didn't much care for the last quarter which started to show too much bitterness for my taste.
Construction, burn and aroma were wonderful. Cedar and nuttiness dominate a rather linear flavour to my mind. However, not a bad cigar for the price point.
A great introduction to Romeo Y Julietta and to Cuban cigars. Great draw with rich flavors. Worth trying for those who want to start smoking Cubans
The most noticeable trait of this cigar is the aroma, both of the stick and it’s smoke. It has a distinct cedar taste which leaves a dry feel in the mouth. Accompanied by a slight pepperiness in the back of the throat. The smoke is rich and coats the mouth. Not too strong not too weak but middle of the road in all aspects except it’s wonderful aroma. Can’t go wrong with it.
Just for context, I took it out the tubo and placed it in the humidor for 6 months before smoking.
After my recent travels to Turkey I was able to pick up a cabinet of 25 of these cigars from Dalaman airport for an amazing price!
I do plan on ageing these but couldn’t resist smoking one to find out what this particular stick was about.
Cut with my favourite cigarloong V Cutter the draw was perfect every single time. You hear a lot of bad stuff when it comes to a tight drawer with Cuban cigars but this one was perfect, I couldn’t think of a bad thing to say on this factor of the cigar.
When it came to the flavours it started off really sweet and floral which slowly blended in to a smooth cedar flavours before ending with a beautiful spice on the palette.
The only issue I had with this cigar was the burn and had to touch up multiple times and re-light the cigar twice.
Other then that was a great cigar and I’m very happy I purchased a cabinet of 25!! And would recommend this to any Cuban smoker!
