Romeo y Julieta Exhibición No. 4

This cigar in particular is the first hand rolled cigar I’ve ever smoked, so it is obvious that it has a special place in my heart. It was at the cigar lounge at Emirates Towers when I saw the walk in humidor so I asked the waitress may I have a cigar!!! She said which one! I was like what the…. That was the time when she recognized that I’m not a cigar smoker so she recommended a mild to medium cigar and it was the Romeo y Julieta Exhibición No. 4.  I always have some in my humidor and even if I don’t smoke them very often nowadays. So here is about it:
Initial thoughts:

Beautiful looking cigar that is well packed with tobacco and box pressed. The wrapper is very nice one, it is a lightly tanned and oily. The pre-light draw is good that brings very cool fruity, cocoay flavors. The burn was good but the ash was ugly dark gray and flaky.
1st:

The initial puffs with Straight medium in body with sweet tobacco, fruits and just a touch of pepper. Half an inch down new flavors appears such as cedar cocoa and nuts that’s comes with some pepper on the finish. By the end of this third the old tobacco exploded to show the caramel it has and no changes in the body side.

2nd:

The fruits here turned to be cherry or grape mixes very well with the cocoa and cedar flavor, the sweet tobacco still on the back ground and the body still medium. This third finishes very smooth and creamy.

3nd:

Here some earthiness appeared and just a hint of coffee to complement the rich flavors profile and the body turned to be medium to full. At the finish the flavors are very sweet with rich tobacco, cocoa, cedar, caramel, and coffee while the smoke still smooth and creamy.

Final thoughts:

As it is very good every time “go to” cigar. It is better with age to reach the complexity peak. I’ve loved it and I will be for ever to this cigar.

  1. I’ve tried a few different RyJ’s, but not this one yet. Sounds good though! How long do you age them?

    • Well I used to get them aged at la casa del habano for 2 years or so. Now I can’t find them commonly, I think they’ve been replaced with the short churchill. All in all 12 to 18 months will do the magic.
