Romeo Y Julieta Rothschild En Tubo

I picked up today’s review at a now defunct local shop. Since I gravitate towards medium and full bodied cigars, I thought this may be a nice change of pace. I have very little information on this Dominican made cigar. As always, I paired with water and got to smoking.


Wrapper: Natural

Binder/Filler: Dominican and Brazilian

Size: 5 x 50

Price: $6 to $7.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

I removed the cigar from the cedar lined tubo and found that the wrapper had minimal flaws with small to medium veins. Overall it looked good, and had a sweet odor of cedar. The foot had a similar smell with an added mild spice. The pre-light draw a little stiff, almost to the point of being annoying. When I took a draw it tasted of cedar and an interesting liquor type of flavor.

The burn required a couple corrections, and the ash held for under an inch.



The first third was pretty mild in body. There were simple notes of cedar to start, with nutty undertones. When passing the smoke though the nose, I found very slight notes of spice.


The second third picked up slightly in body, but still remained in the mild range. Other then that there was no noticeable changes. The flavors remained exactly the same as they were in the first third.


Like before, the last third didn’t see any significant change. The nuttiness may have increased slightly, as did the cedar. The spice developed a cooling effect.



This was a good mild cigar. Despite it being incredibly one dimensional, I enjoyed it in the morning as the first cigar of the day. The stiff draw loosened up a little and I didn’t pay too much attention to it. If mild cigars are your thing, I’d say this is worth trying.
