Recently I bought a couple of boxes of Romeo y Julieta No.2 tubos from a bankruptcy auction, box code POS DIC06 which means that this 127mm ring 42 cigar is quite young, especially for a Romeo y Julieta who usually need some aging. The cigar looks a bit rough, medium brown oily wrapper with a manure and hay aroma. The construction isn’t superb, the draw is pretty tough.
The flavors are great, lots of complexity, lots of different flavors. It starts with leather and wood, but after 2 puffs the leather disappears and the wood becomes stronger. Pretty soon the leather returns with some cacao on the background. Halfway there is a distinct pepper with again cacao on the background. At the end of the cigar I could taste some herbs.
The cigar is medium to full bodied, the smoke starts with a light gray color but turns to white as the cigar progresses, the ash is dark but firm.
Would I buy this cigar again? I still have 3 boxes in my humidor.
