Overall Experience:

This Romeo y Julieta Perlado is a really mild bodied smoke experience that gives a lot of the flavors you would expect out of a Connecticut wrapper. The notes were pronounced and distinguishable where I think anyone could pick them out if they knew what they were looking for. A great cigar to start a beginner on as it won’t over power them. I would smoke this again.
