Romeo y Julieta Escudos LE 2007

This 07 edicion limitada by Romeo y Julieta escudos is a ring 50 cigar with a length of 5 ½ inch and has the aroma of hay. The cigar seems well constructed and the light colored wrapper has some slight veins. The predraw is fine and I could taste some raisin.
After lighting the cigar I taste a slight metallic leather which stays a long time until I reach the middle of the cigar, there I could taste some wood and tobacco. It starts to get a little bitter and some pepper shows up too. This cigar isn’t really flavorful.
The draw is fine, there is enough smoke and the ashes are firm and quite dark. There are some minor burning issues. This cigar is light, mild flavored and mild bodied. It was way overpowered by a smooth single malt Scotch.
Would I buy this cigar again? No, not worth the money. There are better cigars out there for less.

Avo LE07

Avo releases a limited edition each year for a number of years now, and the LE07 is a nice ring 48 toro, 5 5/8 inch long with a nice yet little bumpy wrapper with a nice vein. This limited (only 4000 boxes) cigar as a light aroma and an easy, maybe too easy, predraw.

First I taste leather and then some cedar, with a dry feeling to it. There is a light pepper on the background and a bit liquorices like flavor too. Then the leather and cedar return to the surface again. After smoking half the cigar the pepper grows a bit in strength but it never overpowers the leather and cedar. There is not much progression in flavors, but the flavors are very consistent

The draw is a bit too easy, the burn is great and the smoke is nice, white and full enough.

Would I buy this cigar again? If they were still available, yes.
