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: ★★★★★
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: ★★★½☆
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: ★★★½☆
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: ★★½☆☆
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 : Overall Rating: ★★★½☆
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.
