Reviewed by Karen Starke (October 2000) Cigar in hand, the cares of the day melt away with the warming sun, and for the next hour there's nothing that demands my attention save watching daffodils nod in the breeze or listening to songbirds sing in the trees. Last week, a perfect excuse to indulge myself for a few such evenings arrived from C.GARS Limited - three lovely Romeo y Julieta Belicosos. Each one was perfectly constructed and any would have served to benchmark the classic Havana pyramid. The wrappers were rich colorado, a reddish-brown hue, and glistened with a slight sheen of oil. There was only a touch of veininess, and not a blemish to be found. Although the cigars had a slight give to them, the heft of these belicosos betrayed the generous amounts of tobacco leaf that lay within. The triple caps perfectly tapered, befittingly crowning these achievements of the cigar roller's art. The RyJ Belicoso appeared an aristocrat among cigars, and these samples conveyed their heritage proudly. As wonderful as these cigars looked, the weather proved uncooperative. A cold and rainy string of days forced me to postpone my outdoor plans, and I set out to smoke these cigars in the quiet, darkened corners of the local brew pub and coffee house. There, I removed less than a quarter-inch on the first clips of these cigars. For me, the experience the shape of the pyramid brings provides one of its appeals - the flavors and smoke from the blend of leaves in its large foot, concentrated and carried forward to its narrow head. The pyramid combines the complexity and richness of flavors found in a larger-gauged cigar with the mouth-feel and size of a smaller-gauged cigar. After slowly warming the foot of the Belicoso, I carefully lit the cigar with a few careful and tentative puffs. Despite the small cut I had made, the draw on these cigars was perfect. Just the slightest pressure was needed to bring forth mouthfuls of rich and creamy smoke. From the first this cigar impressed me with its sophistication. It was as if I had strolled into a smoky, sultry Manhattan jazz club after midnight. A woody, almost leathery foundation punctuated with improvisational notes of espresso, walnuts, and tannin enchanted me. I settled in, prepared to allow plenty of time to savor this rich yet somewhat mellow cigar and let its subtle complexities wash over me. I relished each mouthful of the medium-full bodied smoke, letting the RyJ Belicosos reinforce its presence with a long and dry finish. The pyramids all burned perfectly, an indication of both their quality construction and careful storage. As they burned, they produced that dark and solid ash so characteristic of Havanas. About two-thirds the way through the cigar, I carefully shaved another eighth of an inch off the top of the cigar, releasing fresh waves of flavors for my palate to enjoy. I find this second clip especially beneficial for belicosos; it removes whatever tars may have built up and opens and renews the cigar. The last strains of these cigars were bittersweet moments. Would that I could have stretched them a little longer! The Romeo y Julieta Belicoso was a smooth, complex, and refined cigar, without a trace of harshness in its blend. It's not as brash or bold as some Havana's, but it certainly is a rich, almost intellectual cigar, and would be appreciated by any connoisseur.

If you can get your hands on a few aged R y J Belicosos,then you are in for a bit of a treat.Having been a long time fan of these,I have been disappointed with the releases for some time.Pre 2000,these were,earthy,spicy,woody little numbers,with depth and blend complexity,but over the past few years the quality has fallen.Still worth a try though if you are fond of the milder blends.

A medium - mild bodied cigar. The constructon was good, but the wrapper seemed a bit dry. There are notes of leather , friuit (berries), and long spicey finish. A nice cigar, but a bit mild for my liking. written by Michael

Always heard these could be harsh. Pleasantly surprised to find cedar and spice flavors in good balance with the firm productive draw. Fun to give away. written by JM USA
