First third – Initial notes of charred oak and vanilla. Woody flavors mixed with natural tobacco and a hint of tea leaves. Burn is pristine. Ash is white and holding strong.
Second Third – The cedar and earthy notes take the stage here with some woody undertones. Burn remained pristine. Ash fell off around a little over the 2-inch mark.
Final Third – I experienced no real change into the finish. Straight cedar wood, earth and vanilla. Burn remained pristine.
Conundrum White Blend – The oak in the wine enhances the woody flavors of the cigar bringing the vanilla to the forefront.
Overall, this Romeo y Julieta 1875 is a real mellow but masculine cigar from Romeo y Julieta Cigars. The flavor profile is pleasant and calming. A perfect cigar to sit and relax with. It is not complex by any means, but would be appreciated by both a beginner and aficionado.
