Quick Smoke: Romeo y Julieta Reserve Maduro Robusto

27 Jan 2007

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

I got a Romeo y Julieta Reserve Maduro Robusto in an Altadis sampler promotion several months ago. I’ll purchase more, even though it is a little pricey. The diverse blend combine to create a smooth, complex stick with a satisfying finish.

Verdict = Buy.

    I always found the R y J maduro line a little salty.

    Did you find this to be the case?

    No, I don't recall any salty taste. Of course, sometimes tastes are influenced by what we ate or drank before smoking and what we are having with the cigar. I think I was drinking diet ginger ale with this one.

    Jack M,

    For what it's worth, I also found this cigar to be quite salty. But I also enjoyed it thoroughly.

    I plan to do a full review of the Romeo y Julieta Reserve Maduro soon…

    Patrick A –

    I'll be really interested in seeing what you thought. I was looking for another the last time I was in a local B&M but they were out. Now I definitely going to have to get one to see if I pick up that salty taste.

    Gotta agree with the masses here George. I enjoy the RyJ Maduro but agree on the salty tastes.

    Diet Ginger Ale George? That must taste as good as Caffeine Free Diet Coke. 🙂

    Hey, Jerry, when you're pushing too many pounds, you've got to do what you can. Thank goodness, cigars have no calories!

    […] A few months ago, I wrote favorably about a Romeo y Julieta Reserve Maduro Robusto I enjoyed. Several readers, including Stogie Guy compatriot Patrick A., asked whether I’d noticed the salty taste that they said they commonly encountered with the dark RyJs. I hadn’t and vowed to smoke them again with that in mind. […]
