Beautiful cigar to look at - yet the flavor, in my opinion, is not that good. There are cigars in the same category that are just... better. Romeo y Julieta is a famous brand, but I'm not sure whether it's always deserved.
Romeo y Julieta Belicosos sure looks beautiful, the appearance is almost perfect. When you smoke this cigar, you feel like a real serious guy :)
The draw was a bit too tight, although it produced quite a lot of smoke. I cannot say that I was completely satisfied with the cigar, however.
The flavor is hard to define since it is not very strong. I have found touches of cedar, nuts, some woody notes... It was a little bit sweet as well. My overall flavor verdict : boring.
For the price I've paid for Romeo y Julieta Belicosos, I could have easily found something better, for example some fine Cohibas.
Overall Rating :
Well, what can I say. It's just not worth the money. However, it's still a Romeo y Julieta, which means it's still a quality cigar. The problem is that you really can find better.
