I’ll be one to admit that when I first saw the hard to ignore marketing of the, as Cigar Sensei would say “Corporate-Cigar” Romeo by Romeo y Julieta, I was a little suspect of the “slick” packaging and “Ad-Words” (hype).
But, at first glance, this was a beautiful cigar. All dark and smooth and perfectly rolled with a flawless Dark Ecuadoran Habano wrapper makes for a hefty cigar. I look forward to this Romeo every time.
In addition to how this cigar looks and feels in my hands, this cigar reminds me of the classic smokes I enjoyed when I first started smoking cigars 30-years ago or so. This Romeo had the firmness and heft that produced volumes of smoky earth, leather, and nuts.
When I smoke this cigar, I want to find the deepest leather chair and sink into it.
I’ve smoked two or three or these Romeos before this one and it still impresses me or I should say reminds me of those old cigars I used to smoke 20-years ago. Old-School construction; Beautiful smooth wrapper and a flavor profile that hits my “softer” sweet spot. This is not a Full-Powered or Full-Strength stick, it’s a very pleasant experience that’s not too complicated.
I smoked this one in the car and loved it
I’m loving this cigar. It deserves a place in my TupperDor
