Romeo y Julieta is a brand that never managed to impress me. Along with Cohiba, it is often mentioned by people who never smoke when they are asked about cigars. Cohiba, despite its higher price, deserves the recognition it has. Romeo y Julieta, on the other hand, is IMO a middling Cuban brand as even the Short Churchills which received a lot of praise didn't do it for me. This review is for the Cedros de Luxe #3, a petit corona that is, as I just said, quite an average cigar.

Diplomaticos was created back in 1966 as a less expensive alternative to Montecristo cigars. The line of cigars was similar in sizes to Montecristo and they were rolled at the José Marti factory, home to the production of most Montes. Today, the blends are completely different and it's impossible to find taste similarities between the two. The No. 2 is a torpedo with the same dimensions as the Montecristo No. 2 that was previously reviewed on this site. It is approximately $5 cheaper, which would make it a good budget alternative if it had a decent flavor profile and construction. Let's find out.

Partagas Shorts is an interesting small vitola, another good fit for cold winter months. Although the factory name is minuto, don't expect to finish it in less than half an hour - if you take it slowly as I'd recommend you will need around 40 minutes to fully enjoy one. Behind an unobtrusive appearance hides a surprisingly rich flavor profile.

H. Upmann No. 2 is a Cuban torpedo that I somehow missed at the time when I was purchasing boxes of various piramides such as Montecristo No. 2 or Partagas Serie P No. 2. Today we will see how it performs against those.

I'm back with another Cuban cigar review - this time it's a Très Petit Corona by Cohiba - Siglo #1. I found myself turning to this smoke during those cold months, when it's hard to fully enjoy an Esplendido or a Partagas P2. Surprisingly, it packs a lot of flavors in such a small vitola.

Romeo y Julieta Escudos are only available in the 2007 limited edition. In Spanish, escudo means shield or arms and there is not much information about this cigar. We only know that the tobacco leaves for the wrapper, binder and filler have been aged for at least 2 years. The factory name, gordito, is simply a longer robusto.

El Rey del Mundo Choix Supreme is the second cigar that I got during my recent trip to Dubai. As the vintage Saint Luis Rey Serie A wasn't exactly as good as I expected, I was ready to experience another disappointment with this quite aged (4 years old) batch of cigars. Fortunately, these turned out to be rather good.
