Romeo Anejo by Romeo y Julieta
Size = Robusto (5 x 54)
Price that I paid = $8.52
I bought and smoked this cigar at the Club Humidor on Huebner.
Nicely constructed cigar. It felt good in my hands and it was a pleasant smoke. The robusto size was perfect for the Double V Star Cut that I made with my Colibri V-Cutter. I had this cigar in the afternoon with a cup of coffee and an ice cold bottle of water. The coffee and water were good compliments with this cigar because they helped reset my palate and clean my taste buds after a few draws. It helped to take a few drinks because it made my mouth feel refreshed and ready for the next puff.
This cigar was nice and mellow. Not harsh at all. It was easy to blow through my nose with no burn. The robusto size was perfect for a very smooth draw (I’m sure the Star Cut helped). I couldn’t really pick up on any special flavor notes or tastes. It was pretty medium bodied (to me) and had a medium bodied aftertaste. There was a little bit of an uneven burn (as you can see in some of the pictures) but part of that could be due to how I lit the cigar. I usually fix uneven burns, but I wanted to see how long I could get the ash to hang on. As you can see, the cigar almost burned all the way down to the band before it finally fell off (and yes it made a huge mess when the long piece of ash fell off and landed on the table).
As with many cigars, the flavor was enhanced once I got to the last 1/3 of the cigar. Surprisingly, the cigar didn’t taste harsh even when it got to the end. It didn’t burn hot or burn my lips. After smoking the cigar I didn’t have any bad aftertaste, and an hour after smoking the cigar I could barely taste it in my mouth (that’s a good thing).
Overall Rating = GOOD
