Not my favorite RyJ, but a nice little 45 minute stick none the less. Throughout I was treated to the taste of wood, leather and earth, with a little hint of spice on the finish. Fantastic smoke output and well constructed overall.

Bought two of these recently. The first was very good indeed. Not quite as flavoursome as my favourite Partagas and Bolivar equivalents but enjoyable all the same. However the second was absolutely awful. The construction, burn and draw were terrible. I had to keep relighting to stop it from tunnelling, the draw was very tight and there was hardly any smoke or flavour whatsoever. I recently had the misfortune of sampling a Cuaba Divino, which are made at the same factory, with similar results. Unfortunately 1 from 3 is not a good ratio at all. I think I'll be steering clear of this brand in the future.

Mild, with a little spice kick throughout. I was most impressed with the amount of thick smoke this one put out. Ill be buying again.

Can't fault the No. 3 really. In smoking my first one I realised that I am more of an Upmanns man but certainly not because there is any major fault with the Romeo No 3. The first 3rd although very mild is intriguing and friendly in pronouncing what's come. I pared it with an Italian espresso but only for the first 3rd. By the second 3rd I had a glass of beer beside me and, I hate to admit, was listening to a bit of Chopin. The second is when the character of the cigar came home and, like the best cuban cigars I have so far smoked, the cigar insisted of reminding me of all the people and hard work that went in to building such a fine thing. I am not the best in describing flavours but I can tell that when I start to think deeply about the work behind my smoke is when I know am smoking something that will be memorable to me. Final 3rd; I have to admit, this is the first time I have had to re-light a cuban cigar but I wasn't all that bothered, it's a well built cigar regardless. As to be expected, a cigar this size gets a bit hot and challenging towards the end but it's got a good spice and I went well beyond the label before deciding to call it a day. The reason I say I prefer an Upmanns (Coronas Junior I mean) is that whereas the Romeo No.3 waits until the second 3rd to properly announce itself an Upmann's Junior is generally a good conversationalist from the outset. But none-the-less the No.3 is a great little smoke.

I can only echo what everyone else has said; a great some, possibly my favourite to date. Not too strong and complex, although by no means bland at all. Subtle flavours and a good half hour of smoke time, mine burnt brilliantly and I was rather sad to let it go! Needless to say I'll be trying some more R&Js in the future.
