Romeo Anejo Toro 002 (600x400)

This week I have a go with the Romeo Anejo in the Toro size (54×6) that has a MSRP of $9.00.

Starting out this Romeo Anejo with a smoothness up front and a sharpness on the aftertaste. Getting a lot of dark coffee coming through with a cinnamon spice. About halfway through and still a low medium at best. There is a liquor taste coming in that reminds me of rum which is about the only flavor change to this point. That is not a bad thing as I really enjoyed this first half. Good amount of smoke but wish the draw was more open. Between halfway and the last third the cigar started to get stronger and go a little to the bitter side. It is a shame it started to go downhill as I very much enjoyed the first half. At the end it is just so muddied up and a lot stronger than the first half that it really turns me away from it.

Would I buy it again? Possibly but it would have to be to age. I am hopeful that letting these sit a while would turn the second half towards the taste and strength of the first half that was so enjoyable for me.

It is disappointing when a cigar starts off so nicely just to yank the rug out from under your feet.

P.S. Someone needs to give me pointers on how to take a picture of a shiny band as I am terrible at it as seen above.

UPDATE: I tried another one and it did fall off in the second half but not as much. I still think giving these a little more time will do them wonders.

I am just me.

  1. Hey mike do you think that second half was a fluke/bum stick or just the blend? I really want to try the cigar but don’t want to plow through a rough second half. Just wondered what you thought and if you tried more with the same result.

    1. This is the problem with only smoking one for a review. I should have spent the money and bought more but the money tree just sucks lol

      I guessed it could just use some age on it but I will have to spend the money and try another one to see. Gonna try and buy one to smoke tomorrow so I can update this.

  2. Yeah I know it’s hard to know anything based on just one stick. Well it will be interesting to see if a second try improves yet experience.

  3. I aged mine in the humidor for 6 months and I have to say, it tastes exactly how you described it, with a hint of blackberry(?) near the end, all in all, not a bad smoke if the $9 price tag was about 3 or 4 less
