Romeo y Julieta House of Capulet Toro

I've mentioned it before, but it seems that with every new blend from Romeo y Julieta I smoke, I enjoy their cigars more and more. This Romeo y Julieta House of Capulet Toro, a Famous Smoke Shop exclusive, is another great example. RyJ cigars don't have them most complex flavor mixes, but their flavors are rock-solid in every cigar and I like that. 

This Capulet Toro is wrapped in silky smooth, seamless, nearly vein free, Claro colored Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper and finished off with a tight triple cap. From the foot there are sweet fruity aromas to the nose and the free cold draw has notes of fruit and fermented tobacco. 

After toasting and lighting the foot, the initial mild bodied flavors are sweet, fruity and toasty. Tasty is the best way to describe the mix. As the sharp burn line moves up the cigar a few more flavors join in. There are notes of sugar, cream and toasted tobacco. 

Around the mid point the body moves into the medium body range and some caramel jumps into the mix. The cigar finishes its sixty minute burn with a nice flavor mix of earth, caramel and leather. 

I smoked this cigar with my before-breakfast coffee and it was a near perfect combination. Again, the flavor mix wasn't complex, but the flavors were solid and great tasting. In a nutshell, I could smoke this cigar before breakfast every day!

You can grab your own Romeo y Julieta House of Capulet Toros from Famous-smoke.com as a single, in 5 or 10 packs or in a box of 20 for $92.99.
