Beautiful cigar to look at – yet the flavor, in my opinion, is not that good. There are cigars in the same category that are just… better. Romeo y Julieta is a famous brand, but I’m not sure whether it’s always deserved.
Appearance : [rating:5/5]
Romeo y Julieta Belicosos sure looks beautiful, the appearance is almost perfect. When you smoke this cigar, you feel like a real serious guy 🙂
Construction : [rating:3.5/5]
The draw was a bit too tight, although it produced quite a lot of smoke. I cannot say that I was completely satisfied with the cigar, however.
Flavor : [rating:3.5/5]
The flavor is hard to define since it is not very strong. I have found touches of cedar, nuts, some woody notes… It was a little bit sweet as well. My overall flavor verdict : boring.
Value : [rating:2.5/5]
For the price I’ve paid for Romeo y Julieta Belicosos, I could have easily found something better, for example some fine Cohibas.
Overall Rating : [rating:overall/5]
Well, what can I say. It’s just not worth the money. However, it’s still a Romeo y Julieta, which means it’s still a quality cigar. The problem is that you really can find better.

Best early morning smoke I can remember having.
