Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real Belicoso Cigar Review

Posted on Friday, May 22, 2009 in Cigar Reviews

A very nice blend of slight pepper, leather, touches of caramel and sweet woody flavors. The finish is short on the first half, growing longer to the band. The burn was excellent, the draw very good on the loose side – no construction issues. A very enjoyable mild-medium 6.1×52 smoke for about $5!

    I have smoked a few,found the construction to be good, lots of smoke,the barnyard flavor just don’t do it for me.For five buck not a bad yard gar.

    Agree with the previous commentor – very average cigar at best. I had some burn issues during the first third but it worked itself out without my help. Taste was mild, spicy, and pleasant in the first third and went downhill quickly after that. For this price I can get two FAR superior sticks from a less exclusive brand.

    This was a great cigar. I tried the robusto size but it was very smooth and had great flavors all the way through to the end.

    I really enjoyed this one, I had a Lonsdale, so I probably got more out of the mild and understated wrapper flavors against less filler tobacco @44. Only draw back to this size in general is the care and attention required to not pull to strong on it and tarnish the delicate harmony. Towards the latter half, pepper and nutty flavors kick in and tinges on medium. A good one to unwind with on a quiet afternoon, with an even slow burn.

    This was the first “real” cigar I ever smoked…and I love it! It is def. one of my top picks.

    I think these R&J Reserva Real are the exact same filler, binder and wrapper as the Montecristo White Label. The only difference is the wrappers on the Montecristo are much more pristine with no large veins or blemishes which might give it a slightly different variance. Other than that in my opinion they are just about identical twins. Besides their both Altadis brand cigars, the R&J’s are a little cheaper. Check them out yourselfs and do a few comparisons to see if you think I’m right or if you think like they say i’m been smoking my pipe”! :)
