Romeo Y Julieta Primer Lote 0770 Toro

Romeo Y Julieta Primer Lote 0770 Toro Cigar
I feel very lucky to be one of the first to review the Romeo Y Julieta Primer Lote 0770. It's created with "unique and special tobaccos," and is offered exclusively by MikesCigars.com. I'm  not going to bog you down with the details in this review but you can read all the specs by clicking this direct link to the page at MikesCigars.

First, this RyJ Primer Lote 770 is a real beauty. My two sample cigars are an oval, semi-box-pressed shape covered with a silky, seamless, Colorado colored wrapper that's nearly vein free, plus it's topped off with a triple cap.

Testing the cold aromas, the foot has a faint black tea aroma, while the free cold draw has notes of spiced tea. Once the cigar is burning there are flavors of white pepper, tea, earth, brown sugar, toast, toasted nuts, toasted marshmallows, cream, sugar, coffee and cocoa.

This is definitely a cigar you need to nub. As the burn reached the band area, flavors of coffee and cocoa came out of nowhere to top-off the fifty-five minute burn time with a super tasty finish.

Since this cigar has such a toasty flavor mix, I tested the retro hale and found it mild, with notes of creamy brown sugar. The cigar also produced huge amounts of smoke from both ends with hints of nuts in the aroma.

Overall this Romeo Y Julieta Primer Lote 0770 Toro  was a fantastic cigar. It had a great burn, great flavors and was medium bodied from start to finish.

Is this cigar box worthy? Yes!

Rated 94


As a final note, I paired this cigar with a Mexico Chiapas coffee from Royal Mile Coffee Roasters with incredible results.
