Not a bad smoke, just not epic. Good tobacco flavor, but without any spice. A little toast, and mildly astringent on the back of the throat. These were aged 1+ year in humidor out of the tubes. The prelight aroma is very nice.

"not very good, terrible taste"
Got a Romeo court from a local cigar shop. The burn was good, the consistency was good, draw was good, the appearance nice. The taste was the problem! I had a tar like film oozing out of the end and it tasted bitter.The smoke had a funny smell to it. I smoked it about a third of the way before putting it out and dissected it. There was one leaf inside the layer that looked different. Different in color. I'm not buying these again!

"Bland and Expensive"
I found these to be pretty bland with very little taste at all. They burned out easily and the draw was too tight. I wanted to like them but I just wasn't impressed!

"My favorite smoke"
I purchased a box of 25. I'm very pleased, a great smoke all around. I did not have any issues with these cigars. All 25 were great!

After reading several bad reviews I was skeptical.
These cigars were very enjoyable! Spicy and smooth, not a bit of harshness. Smoked it right down to the last half inch and was sorry it ended.

"Consistancy a BIG problem"
When this cigar is good it is Excellant. One of my favorites. Unfortunately 4 or 5 out of the box of ten are rolled to tight. So tight that I end up frustratingly throwing the thing away. This is not just a one time occurance Ive bought 5 boxes of these babies and its the same thing everytime. When rolled and contructed properly its a pleasure to smoke. Its a great price for 10 cigars but when your throwing half of them away your suddenly paying twice the amount per cigar. I hope they get their quality issues resolved would love to get a good box of 10 one of these days

"Excellant Cigar Most of the time"
This cigar when good is VERY good. The one problem I did find was 3 or 4 from the box of 10 were rolled to tight and was tough to draw. Otherwise and excellant smoke. Construction, burn taste all a 10. This is not to say its the best tasting cigar I've ever had, but factoring in the price at about $3.70 a stick the value is a 10. They shared my humidor with a box Of Montecristo #4 Cubans which I paid alot more for and liked the RYJ's better in all respects. If they can eliminate the few that had draw problems, in my opinion, this is one of the best deals out there.
