Romeo y Julieta Robusto LE 2001 Review:

This one is clearly one of the best of the new offerings. Once again, high quality construction is evident topped with the beautiful velvety dark brown 'mold resistant' wrapper.
From the start, this cigar is sweet on the lips with immediate flavours of burnt cocoa. Strong and full-flavoured in body with plenty of youthful spice, its depth and flavour intensity increased without 'losing it' - a sure sign of good balance. Later on, richer burnt almond and dark chocolate notes made it good to the very end. Lots of potential for greatness to come with six months or more ageing.

Review #17: I smoked this RJ LE with a bit of hesitancy. I have tried about a half dozen LEs so far, and all have been disappointments—the dark LE wrapper seeming to drown out the flavor in these other cigars. But I thought that this one looked interesting. I have had this in my humidor for about 4 to 6 months. It was ready to try. After clipping and lighting this cigar, the first puff was a revelation. This was probably the most flavorful first puff I have ever enjoyed from a cigar. There was an overwhelming sweet fruity and mocha taste, with just the right balance of flavors. As I continued to enjoy this cigar through the first third, I continued to get this very nice cherry-like fruit taste. It reminded me of fresh cherries dipped in just a little bit of cocoa, with a bit of sweetness but with a tart aftertaste. Best first one third of a cigar I have ever smoked. Surprisingly, the middle third of this cigar got milder. That same fruity taste with a dusting of mocha was still there, but it was more subdued. The fruity taste was more tart and less sweet. More of a strong tobacco taste emerging. Near the end of the middle third, this cigar was starting to get very strong. Lip numbing strong. Final third—this RJ became a very strong cigar, with a big nicotine kick. I continued to get plenty of flavor, somewhat subdued from the intensity of the first third. The mocha taste became a rich, dark chocolate flavor. Flavors in this cigar are somewhat reminiscent of RJ Exhibition #4 (99) that I have really enjoyed, but much more full bodied, strong, and with that bit of mocha. It also reminded me a bit of the Ramon Allones 898, which also has a fruity taste building in strength—but this cigar was much more flavorful, and less smooth. My taste buds were overpowered by the full and complex flavors in this cigar from start to finish. All in all, this cigar was a real treat from start to finish. Every puff was enjoyable. It was an hour and 15 minutes of pure cigar pleasure. - Submitted by Professor Twain on June 14, 2007

Review #16: Feliz Navidad Amigos. Merry Christmas All. This is my smoke for Christmas Eve after dinner. Superb cigar I never get tired of it. Hope Santa's sending me more Robustos R&J EL 2001. - Submitted by olisiponense on December 25, 2006

Review #15: Hola. This is the best Robusto I tried. I completely agree with Reviewer #14 when he says: The flavor profile was typical R & J with spice and cream, but there was much fuller body with greater strength. Well aged is a must, for me, even better than Cohiba Robusto. - Submitted by olisiponense on December 17, 2006

Review #14: Smoked one of these from a box that has been in my humidor for about 18 months. The cigars looked absolutely perfect when I got them. I smoked several of them shortly after I received the box, and, while not disappointed, they did not seem to be anything extraordinary. BUT,after a proper time of aging,they are absolutely tremendous. Smoked one this past weekend outdoors on the porch with a tall cold drink and the experience was outstanding. Perfect construction, wonderful draw, loads of very aromatic smoke, and a razor sharp burn. The flavor profile was typical R & J with spice and cream, but there was much fuller body with greater strength. The last half of the cigar was heaven. - Submitted by McSmoke on August 7, 2006

Review #13: I've gotten some great smokes from this cigar during the past year. Clearly more consistent than the flagship Churtchills, possibly due to the LE designation. A very balanced and satisfying cigar. - Submitted by pachemar on January 14, 2006
