Welcome to my review of the Romeo y Julieta Museum Edition cigar. This cigar was only made in one size (6×54) and comes in a beautiful humidor that holds 36 tubed cigars.
This will be considered a first impressions because this is only the second one I have smoked.
Beautiful presentation on this cigar. Just take a look at the picture. I would love to have the entire humidor but it is pretty expensive. If you have one, let me know what you think of it in the comments.
Starting off there is a spice scent on the wrapper, a tobacco smell at the foot and both on the cold draw.
Upon lighting there a dominate woody taste with a spicy note in the background. Smoke has a chewy quality to it and there is a good bit of it.
Spice went almost away then came back and gave a nice taste and even the retrohale was pleasant. Very mild smoke at this point.
I was a little disheartened by the major lack of flavor changes in the cigar at this point. My first one was a little more flavorful but still a straight forward smoke.
Getting a bit of leather mixing in with the wood and spice and everything is melding together nicely. Still a very mild smoke.
Ash has been very flaky throughout so I suggest you keep an ashtray handy or else smoke outside.
Very slowly the cigar is creeping to a medium strength with full flavor. Still have the leather, wood and spice with the spice building a bit in intensity.
Into the final third and the cigar has built to the medium range but on the low end. Spice has ramped up to a level 10 at this point. It coats your entire palette and lingers for a long time after releasing the smoke. It is not overbearing to me but it is very noticeable.
Would I buy it again? Yes but only at the lower pricing they are being sold at now. I do not think I would have been happy at all paying $30 for this stick with the lack of something to make it stand out in the flavor department. I tell you in the video where to find these right now, so take a peek if you are interested.
Have you ever had these? Did you have them when they were first released? recently? Let me know in the comments.
