Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real Toro
6 x 54 - Natural - Single
The Romeo & Juliet love story just got a bit spicier, thanks to an extra dash of robust Nicaraguan tobaccos. Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real smokes medium-full in this toro size, richer in flavor yet with the same refined quality expected of RyJ. Hearty, not overpowering - and worth it. Buy a box now!
First appearance nice solid looking cigar and wrapper and had a nice aroma after thirty days in humidor. V cut clean and purge very good and after initial lighting started to burn unevenly. With a little attention managed to get the burn under control, but the ash stack was uneven and started to crack and separate down one side. Although it purged well I had to really puff it along. It settled down after the first third but by the half way mark cracks appeared in the wrapper which now was looking a very thin wrapper. The flavour improved in the second half but there was no abundance of smoke or aroma; I had to relight three times not from pleasure but from necessity. I have four more in the humidor which I will leave there for another ninety days; I will then try another and give an update at that time. After reading the high reviews and rating I thought that I would give them a try. I buy Cuban RYJ from Switzerland and have a standing monthly order and I must say I expected a lot more from RYJ. The Cigar is ok but more than a little disappointed.
R&J toro's have an awesome flavor, draw, taste, and appearance, smoking these is a real joy
