If you prefer a top quality cigar at reasonable price then Romeo y Julieta 1875 cigars might be a terrific alternative for you. These widely recognized classic cigars are made from Dominican tobacco and combined with an aromatic Indonesian wrapper for a well balanced, gentle smoke.
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.0 0
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.0 0
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!0 0
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!0 0
