Again, I had a chance to compare Cuban Romeo y Julietas to Dominican ones, and the conclusion is pretty much the same - the Deluxe #2 that was brought to me straight from the Dominican Republic is a high quality cigar with a steady, pleasant flavor that has its own, Dominican, personality.
Although the pre-draw was tight, upon lighting, I was able to get sufficient amounts of smoke, which kept increasing. Deluxe #2 burned very well and I never needed to touch it up.
Soft cedar flavors in the beginning grow stronger in the second third; also appear some interesting notes of roasted coffee. The flavors do not change much, I did not observe the "Cuban" kaleidoscope, yet the Dominican Romeo y Julieta's flavors are not bad at all.
I guess it's totally worth the money, if you are looking for a simple, high-quality cigar that would not require you to concentrate on the smoke itself.
Overall Rating :
The Romeo y Julieta Deluxe #2 is probably great for beginners, who are not used to complex-flavor cigars. More experienced smokers might find that the stick lacks depth and complexity.
