Romeo y Julieta Escudos 2007


While opening the box you smell the typical odor of a young cigar: stable, ammonia. But also some subtle notes of chocolate... and that's also the color of the wrapper: maduro, a bit oily and a surprisingly rough looking surface...

Cutting, first cold draw: very spicy, taste of wood

After lighting up the cigar these first impressions were approved...

Some (black) pepper is coming up.. in the second third the first impressions step back and some hints of berries, accompanied by chocolate and leather come the the surface. The chocolate lasts until the end of the smoke...

The aromas are very complex, due to fact of the youth of the cigar.

The draw was perfect every time, in spite of the fact that it was rolled very hard. Solely the ash was very crumbly.

The Cuban limitada was attended by a Pampero Aniversario Reserva Exclusiva but I think a Pedro Ximinez Sherry could be also a good combination...
