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!) :)

Appearance : Rating: ★★★★½
For a Petit Corona, the appearance is flawless. Beautiful shining wrapper and it smells so good when unlit :)

Construction : Rating: ★★★★½
The draw could be less tight, but I enjoyed the smoke nevertheless. The construction is excellent. The burn only needed one minor correction.

Flavor : Rating: ★★★★☆
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.

Value : Rating: ★★★★☆
This stick is affordable and you’re getting real quality for that price, unlike some other Romeos. Good choice.

Overall Rating : Overall Rating: ★★★★½
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 :)

  1. I will start with saying, as my reviews show, that I am not a fan of R&J. This is a good smoke but as the inspector said, needs age. This one was two years old. At last an R&J with some taste and twists.Still interesting at the end.

  2. Had a a couple of these in a sampler from CT. I’d agree with the review, in principle. Probably lacking a little in flavour, but decent smoke otherwise.

  3. Beneluxor says:

    A decent stick, sometimes with a kind of sophisticated bitter flavour like an Italian apertif, along with the classic RyJ woody and floral notes.

    What is very confusing from Cuba’s Romeo y Julieta, is that they now have no less than 5 different cigars with this same exact Mareva vitola, 42 ring gauge x 129mm. Along with the higher-end Petit Corona reviewed above, there is the Mille Fleurs, at about 40% lower in price in my area; the Romeo No 2 in an aluminium tube; the cedar-wrapped Cedros de Luxe No 3; and now a new one, the Club Kings Linea Retro … all in the same 42 x 129 Mareva size and shape.
