The Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real is one of the most popular and best-selling smokes in America, after the classic Macanudo. Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s the finest cigar on the market, just that it finds a home in countless humidors across the nation. Many people look at a cigar like this as their standard smoke when they don’t want anything too special. Fine for mornings, driving down the highway, outdoor projects, and other times when you need a cigar that will take a backseat to whatever else you’re doing so that you can focus. In short, this one won’t demand too much of you.
The cigar features a nice light Ecuador Connecticut wrapper, which carries a sweet aroma. Inside, there’s a Dominican binder wrapped around a Dominican and Nicaraguan filler blend. Light it up to enjoy classic flavors of toasted nuts, cereal sweetness, and a touch of peppery spice with a cedar finish. The profile stays fairly stable as you go through the stick, making it great for relaxed, easygoing smoking. Don’t underrate it, though – it’s scored as high as a 91 in Cigar Aficionado’s books. Their judges enjoyed some of the faint dessert-like flavors in the mix, like spicy cinnamon, walnuts, and creamy coffee. Occasionally, this stick reminds us why it’s one of the country’s favorite cigars.
Grab some for your humidor for anytime smoking or for sharing – it’s what this cigar is all about.
