ROMEO Añejo Robusto by Romeo y Julieta

ROMEO Añejo Robusto by Romeo y Julieta
Top notch construction, a hearty Connecticut Broadleaf vintage 2010 wrapper, plus big medium/full bodied flavor notes of espresso and chocolate. Does this sound like great cigar to you? It does to me. Read on and see how it smoked out.

On my last visit to Cigar Train I noticed a box of ROMEO Añejo Robusto by Romeo y Julieta so I plucked one from the box and brought it home. In hindsight I should have grabbed a couple more. 

Construction of this cigar is just what you'd expect from RyJ. It's seamless, the thick maduro colored wrapper has a couple of medium veins, but its packed well full length and topped with a tight triple cap. 

Checking the cold aromas, the foot has a nice spicy fermented tobacco aroma while the free and airy cold draw has delicious notes of fruity chocolate. 

Once the foot was toasted and burning the first draws contained notes of earth and cocoa. As the slightly wavy burn moved up the body there were some fruity floral flavors, a bit of oak, chocolate and some espresso. Very tasty!

The Añejo Robusto finished its fifty-five minute burn with satisfying flavor mix of burnt mocha, a dash of black pepper and a bit of oak. 

With a smorgasbord of vintage tobaccos, Romeo y Julieta delivers another winner that fits my palate extremely well. Like I said earlier, I should have grabbed a couple more of these just to smoke.
