TASTING NOTES: The Romeo y Julieta Short Churchills is named for its format, measuring 124mm in length with a 50 ring gauge. They were released in 2006 and are offered in boxes of 25.
The wrapper is a beautiful Colorado shade with immaculate construction, this produces an excellent draw and the burn is sharp with invisible seams and a perfectly finished triple cap.
They are expertly handcrafted and filled with the finest long filler tobacco from the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba. Sporting the classic RyJ band, they have a secondary complimenting gold band that displays the ‘Short Churchill’ name.
The aroma off the top is a light chocolatey sweet scent that mixes with a warm earthiness, the cold draw offers a distinctly cedar note mixed with a touch of buttered bread.
Once lit we found a distinct chocolate note to jump out first, with a harmonious blend of caramel and cappuccino that joins the mix around the halfway mark. In the second third a floral note comes into the bouquet and an undertone of creaminess that settles in, the flavours and body hold a solid medium strength from start to finish, the cigar gets steadily smoother as it burns.
