Romeo y Julieta Petit Corona, SLB, Mid 80s


Colorado-colored wrapper, fine and little oily, no pressing and rolled well. Good conditions that let me expect a pleasant smoke. The smell is decent, leather and roasted nuts... very pleasant in the nose.

I lighted it up very softly with the flame and cutted it... then the first puff.

Smoothness is like understatement... it was awesome!

The draw was ideal, absolutely perfect....

The first third started with the roasted nuts, some malty flavors... it was all like a creamy coffee.... a certain sweetness came up, a bit like honey... but not very impressive...

The second third was dominated by coffee/espresso, some dark chocolate and sometimes there was a hint of cinnamon and.... please don't think I'm crazy: charcoal, like I know it from several Islay Whiskys. It was smashing!!

The last third was again a mixture of roasted nuts, some fruity and berry flavors, accompanied by a decent tobacco taste in the background, mixed with some ceddar....

The smoking time was 100 minutes, the ash was very stable, especially in the last third.

I need more of this RyJ stuff of the 80's, it was really a great experience....
