Cigar of the Week: Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real Robusto
The blend consists of a perfectly balanced mix of Dominican and Nicaraguan longfillers, Nicaraguan binder and a silky, Ecuadorian-grown Connecticut wrapper. The smoke is medium-bodied – definitely a notch up in fullness from the Romeo 1875 selection – and super creamy. I generally pick-up flavors of toasted nuts, sweet spices like nutmeg and cinnamon, and caramel toffee. The cigar also offers a clean burn, firm white ash, and an appealing aroma.
I view this cigar as “Rocky Patel meets Davidoff.” The Dominican/Nicaraguan blend is something Rocky has used often to his credit, while the appearance and aroma of the wrapper remind me of a Davidoff. This is a first-class smoke that has something for everyone. You’d do your collection justice by having at least a 5-pack of these in your humidor. (Check out the other sizes, too.)
