Romeo y Julieta Cedros Deluxe No 2


At 5 1/2 inches long and a 42 ring gauge, this Romeo y Julieta Cedros Deluxe No 2 should give you over an hour smoking time of some of the smoothest Cuban tobacco from Romeo y Julieta.  Easily very underrated,  these Coronas comes wrapped in a very thin sheet of Spanish cedar, giving not only a beautiful presentation to the cigar but infusing the taste of cedar to the already complex Romeo flavor profile which many of you are familiar.

Here again is a perfect cigar for someone just introduced to the passion of smoking Cuban cigars because of it’s mild to medium strength with a slightly nutty finish and notes of cedar throughout.  Halfway through this cigar you may even notice a sweetness developing that becomes somewhat illusive depending on how fast you smoke a cigar.  Because of this cigar’s gentle approach, I found myself waiting as long as my patience would allow between puffs, since the real beauty with this cigar appears with the coolest possible flame.

I firmly believe that Spanish Cedar is Cuban tobacco’s best friend.  Quality humidors are lined with this wood and can greatly assist in the aging process of fine cigars.  Inside one of my humidors I have quite a potent cedar aroma and this is where I store and age cigars of a woody nature.  It has enhanced the flavor of many cigars I’ve picked up from “The Vancouver Cigar Company”, their bundle Churchills in particular.
