This is a classic Romeo y Julieta, with its brand sweet/spicy flavor. Furthermore, this stogie is reasonably priced, unlike some other RyJ models. A fine smoke overall, especially when it's properly aged (mine was!) :)
For a Petit Corona, the appearance is flawless. Beautiful shining wrapper and it smells so good when unlit :)
The draw could be less tight, but I enjoyed the smoke nevertheless. The construction is excellent. The burn only needed one minor correction.
I experienced this spicy/sweet flavor (with notes of coffee and vanilla here and there) in the first and in the last thirds. I wish the 2/3 was as good! Somehow, it felt completely different, bland and empty... Apart from this downside, the Romeo y Julieta Petit Coronas is a good stogie.
This stick is affordable and you're getting real quality for that price, unlike some other Romeos. Good choice.
Overall Rating :
A superbly constructed cigar with lovely flavors, this cigar will make you appreciate Romeo y Julietas. It would have been perfect if it only had two thirds :)
