Romeo by Romeo y Julieta

Wrapper: Select dark Ecuadorian Habano seed

Binder: Dominican Olor

Filler: Dominican Piloto & Olor

Size: Robusto (5 x 54)

Pre Light

The Romeo has a very oily and dark wrapper which has an aroma of light hay. The wrapper doesn’t have any majorly prominent veins on it and the red and gold band really goes well with the dark wrapper. The cap is well applied and is easily removed with my Palio cutter. The aroma I get of the cold but and flavors I get off the cold draw are the same, chocolate and pepper.

1st Third

With the first few puffs I was met with an array of different flavors of the bat. I tasted the normal pepper kick at first with a mix of chocolate and wood all the in first few pulls. An earthy flavor also started to creep towards the end of the first inch mark.

2nd Third

The second third kicks off with the chocolate, wood and earthiness. Those flavors are met with a slight spice that starts to peak its head around the halfway point. The cigar is burning a little hot and needed to be relit. The cigar also doesn’t seem to be putting off much smoke on either end.

Final Third

The cigar mellowed out in the final third with the wood flavor really dominating. All the other flavors seem to have disappeared with only the chocolate flavor showing up here and there. The Romeo also needed a few more relights.


I enjoyed the flavors in this cigar even though they seams to dull out at the end of day. The construction was a little poor but that coulda just been the humidity here since it’s been very hot. Hey, that’s just my opinion get out there and try them for yourself.

Keep em burnin’

    Very interesting Gruff. Romeo y Julieta cigars are one of the big brands that I do enjoy smoking. However, I have not tried this stick yet. From what I have been hearing from people, this stick might benefit from some more time in the humidore. I will be searching out this stick.

  3. Yeah, not your traditional Romeo y Julieta but a good change of pace. Sounds interesting. Thanks Griff.
