Cigar Review: Romeo y Julieta
November 18, 2009Posted by on
Romeo y Julieta Maduro Reserve Toro
6 x 50
This maduro-wrapped smoke was enjoyed last Wednesday afternoon around 3pm on my back patio. Mother Nature continues to bestow onto me good favor even towards the middle of November. I mean, we’re days away from Thanksgiving and it’s still hitting 70 at times here in DC.
This Dominican cigar offered up a charred, earthy flavor that was appealing to both the tastebuds and the nose. It’s much more robust than the standard 1875 line — which is no slouch on its own.
It had a dark, rich Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. This was an above average cigar. This cigar usually runs for ~$7 dollar a piece. One of the things I love about any Romeo y Julieta I smoke is that they are all consistant. Rarely do they disappoint.
It still continues to be a mild autumn here in the nation’s capital, and for that, I will continue to smoke on my back patio with reckless abandon.
