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.

Romeo y Julieta Exhibicion #4

This is a ring 48 and 127 mm long cigar, boxpressed so a bit square. There is just a light aroma and the wrapper is nice, oily and light of color. It feels well rolled, no soft spots in the cigar but not to hard either.

The first flavor isn’t leather like I expected from this Cuban cigar but a very deep earthy flavor, but pretty soon the leather, which is so characteristic for Cubans, shows up. Halfway the cigar gets smoother, bit creamy. Still there is not a lot of progress in flavors. At the end there is a very strong wood flavor. Right before the turning point there is a light hint of chocolate

The ash is very dark, the smoke is medium, burn is even.

Would I buy this cigar again? No, this cigar is too one dimensional for me

Romeo y Julieta #2 tubos

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.
