I am having some tough luck with petit coronas recently. First, the disappointing RASCC and now the pale and hardly memorable Romeo y Julieta No. 2. Not to mention that one of the cigars was moldy. I guess it's time to get back to my beloved robustos...
The tubo looks good, all right, but the stick itself is not very attractive. The wrapper is of average quality; I often found some discolorations such as green patches seen on the picture below. Although it is said that these green spots do not affect the flavor, they sure distract you.
As for the flavor, the Romeo y Julieta No. 2 left a dubious impression. At times, it was a very pleasant cigar with delicious notes of nuts, cedar and chocolate. Unforunately, very often a disagreeable herbacious flavor appeared to spoil my pleasure. In some sticks, it was present from start to finish, in others it only caught up on me in the very end. Overall, I find that you can't really count on this stogie.
Overall Rating :
I would not recommend this cigar. The most positive aspect of the RyJ No. 2 is its beautiful, stylish tube - which makes it a good gift item. Unfortunately, the quality varies very much and I am reluctant to offer this cigar to a friend if I know that it might be moldy or badly constructed. I am afraid I will not buy them again.
