This is an interesting Romeo y Julieta, with its leathery/spicy taste. It was equal in its pros and cons, starting out pleasant, but becoming harsh near the ring.
On this particular Romeo y Julieta, the appearance is very impressive, perhaps one of the better that I have seen. Almost appears to be delicately constructed.
Draw is a little on the tight side on this one, the burn wasn't the greatest, a little lopsided, but not so bad as to require adjusting. Great plume of smoke though.
The peppery flavor of the Romeo y Julieta Cazadores is a smooth starter, with only a little spice to it. Very mild, calm and yet slightly peppery.
The second third brings an earthy, impressive lingering flavor, reminiscent of a fresh cup of coffee. Quite nice. The last third gets to be a bit on the overwhelming side, though not so much that you want to put it down. Instead, you just want to go a bit slower on it, enjoying it patiently.
The price is not extremely high, and for the most part it was a pleasant smoke. A good mid-day cigar, well after the lunch.
Overall Rating :
A good smoke for the most part, though I have had better. Overall, it was decent. It would have been perfect if it only had two thirds :)
