Tasting Notes

A wonderful smoke, a hint of sweetness on the lips and spice in the mouth. Light and cedary aroma with a pleasantly sweet vanilla flavor in the first half. Don't miss the opportunity to try a few.

Taste Test

Reviewed by Adam Cheal (July 2001)

I had a pretty awful week last week and it didn't seem like anything would turn it around, wrong! I was chosen as one of this months taste challengers after only registering for the scheme a few days before and was told I would be receiving three lovely Havana's. I couldn't wait to find out which cigars I would be sent and was not disappointed when it was the Romeo y Julieta Corona. The delicate pleasure conduits were placed into my humidor to recover from the journey.

Upon first inspection the three cigars didn't seem to be the best constructed for what I have come to expect from the brand, although they seemed fair enough if not a little rough and veiny. The three cigars varied from each other enough in appearance that I would guess they were likely to have come from a small pack rather than from a box of 25.

The wrapper was a nice Colorado shade, perhaps slightly lighter, which I found unusual for such a mild smoke as the R y J. The aroma was pleasing but the cigars seemed to be rather young. The cigars did however seem to be quite firm which I perceived as a possible tight draw problem.

With the initial pre judgements I decided to think about what really matters and arranged the objects needed for my cigar smoking ritual. First I usually take my time choosing just the right cigar (in this case it was the R y J corona), I then place it in my ashtray along with my guillotine cigar cutter and my cigar matches. The whole package is then transported to my smoking area. In this case it was a comfy chair in front of the TV.

The Smoke!

Cutting the cigars was uneventful and the caps came off clean with no flaking. I then had a brief toke just to confirm if my guess about the tight draw had been correct. I am pleased to say I was mistaken, the draw was clear.

Lighting was easy and the mild smoke washed my pallet. The flavour was smooth with a mild, salty earth flavour. During the smoke however the flavour became a little inconsistent and I found it difficult to describe the overall taste. A good example of a young cigar.

The second smoke was in contrast to the first cigar, the flavour started out almost medium to full, very unlike the R & J. But as smoking continued the flavour panned out and became more medium and what I would expect from the brand.

The third cigar was like a dream. It smoked well, the flavour was consistently medium all the way through. The flavour was earthy, rich, extremely aromatic and with a hint of background spice. Truly joyous with everything a Havana should have! I could not believe that three cigars of the same brand and size could be so different.

Overall I would say that the cigars are well constructed, had a pleasing taste and aroma but too inconsistent to recommend for any particular occasion. More likely a day time smoke as there was not quite enough punch for an evening smoke but too much for an early.

I would not recommend the Romeo y Julieta corona to the beginner but experienced smokers will enjoy the cool spicy and surprising flavour, this one will keep you on your toes!

P.S. Thanks for the opportunity to participate the taste challenge C-gars.

Even if you like big cigars, as I do, this is the right cigar to have with a "Sams Special" Bombay Sapphire Martini cocktail at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. -- the place where the late J. Edgar Hoover and his gunsel Clyde Tolson used to hang out. Its just a medium-bodied tasty smoke that goes well with gin and Washington gossip. written by gjk USA

This started badly, was good in the middle and ended badly. The flavour was full (by my standards) but with an underlying bitterness. A little green stuff in the cap added to the fun. Perhaps this one should have been sat on for a little longer...as a point of principle I finished it but I think I wouldnt have missed out if Id finished it halfway through. written by Benjamin

Thought I would like this one after enjoying other Romeo y Julieta cigars - Exhibition No. 4, No. 2 Tubos, Churchill, No. 3 Cedros - but was rather disappointed. Well made, but burned somewhat unevenly after the middle. Harsh at the start, but settled down to a strong but bitter and unsatisfying flavour. written by Andy Mellor, GBR

This mavera had nutty flavors, nothing special until smoked with a nice glass of grahams port(1984)near a fireplace with my best friends. written by Tarkan Nevzat GBR
