Quick Smoke: Romeo y Julieta Short Churchill (Cuban)

28 Dec 2008

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

I recently had occasion to light up this beauty and was once again stunned by what a magnificently flavorful and balanced cigar this  Cuban is. Its shiny wrapper hides a medium-bodied smoke with coffee, honeycomb, and cedar notes. And like my other experiences with the Short Churchill, the construction was impeccable. Anyway, you probably see where this is going; after all, there is a reason this is one of my all-time favorite cigars.

Verdict = Buy.

    I guess it’s time for me to revisit this smoke. Didn’t find it amazing a year ago.

    That stick looks good enough to eat. Great flavors in a friendly format.

    Question from a newbie: When you say “Cuban”, does that mean the cigar is made in Cuba? If so, doesn’t that also mean that it is illegal to have it in the US?

    I’m asking not to be a stick-in-the-mud, but because I have absolutely no idea where you guys get these sticks! Also, it doesn’t help an Average Joe like me keep my right to enjoy a cigar outside of the closet in my home when other smokers are thumbing their nose at federal import restrictions.

    Indeed! I do not subscribe to the notion that Cuban always = better, but in this case the Short Churchill is awesome.

    On another note…thanks for the site Stogieguys. I read it everyday.
