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.

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★☆
Pretty well rolled, this cigar had no soft spots. Dark oily wrapper smelled of stables.

Construction : Rating: ★★★★½
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.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★☆
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.

Value : Rating: ★★★★☆
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.

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.

5 Comments on “Romeo y Julieta Deluxe #2 (Dominican)”

  1. The Deluxe #2 is not a bad cigar. Fine draw (although tight sometimes), generally nice construction. As for the flavors, they are pretty simple (mostly wood with rare sweet notes) yet enjoyable.

  2. This was the first RyJ I’d ever smoked. If you like wood flavors in a cigar, give this one a try.

  3. How is this Deluxe #2 different from the RYJ Bully, which I enjoy as a mild (albeit not too complex) smoke.

  4. agree, mild-medium, but definitely worth the time and money to smoke…

  5. I have a box of Romeo and Julieta 125 anniversiry cigars, Churchill’s.
    and i have pictures of same. The bands are black with red and gold lettering that says 125.
    I purchased them in 2000. Any idea what they are, they are not on any website.
