Welcome to this weeks condensed written review of the RyJ by Romeo y Julieta. This cigar comes in three sizes, Bully Grande (5×54), Toro (6×52 – this is the review stick) and Piramide (6 1/8×52). Prices range from $8 to $8.75 MSRP.


Lost my original writeup so you get a condensed version. Check out the video for more in depth blatherings if you so prefer.

Started off this RyJ with tobacco, wood and spice with a tight draw. halfway through and the draw is still tight and I have had to relight about 3 or 4 times due to trying to reduce puffing as the cigar is getting really hot. I will mention that the one sample I smoked had a looser draw than any of the ones I have smoked from my box purchase. Coincidence, I don’t know.

Rounding out the cigar it was just too tight of a draw to get many flavors. Relighting a couple more times happened and bitterness and heat came into play. The one that was a nice loose draw had nice nutty, sweetness with a creamy smoke that was really nice.


Would I buy it again? Depends if they have a looser draw or not. I do not like the tight draw that has been in every one I smoked from the box I purchased and I hope with a bit of time they will loosen up. With the looser drawing one it was a great smoke and really one of the best Romeo y Julieta smokes I have had. Try one before jumping into a box so you know if they are drawing tight or not.
