Length: 178 mm
Diameter: 18.65 mm
Ring Gauge: 47
Solid brown rustic wrapper with faint veins. Some oiliness that shines in the light.
Before lighting up:
Robust and complex. Flavors and aromas that include vanilla, espresso, exotic fruit, cedar, chocolate, walnuts, herbs and flowers.
A lush and even draw with a perfect mouth filling burn with billowing clouds of smoke.
In the first third, the cigar starts on very smooth tone but with some already complex profile. The cigar is releasing powerful tastes already, but very sweet ones. We have some aromas of honey, caramel, burnt sugar, and sweet coffee. The flavors are not lingering on the palate at all, the after taste is short and clean. Overall, a very enjoyable first third.
The second third continues on a fairly similar flavor profile than the first one. Some aromas are appearing, some of toasted bread and of fruits, sweet black cherry that is. The sweet flavors of the first third are now stronger, but the body is of the cigar is light-medium in strength. The overall balance of flavors is good and makes this middle part a true delight. The amount of smoke produced by the cigar is generous, but the aftertaste is still rather short. The nicotine starts to kick in.
In the final third, the sweetness of the first two third fades away and makes space to more robust flavors. The body of the Churchill is now medium and the flavors are even stronger. It is releasing a lot of nicotine when reaching the nub.
In summary, smoking a Romeo y Julieta Churchill is something every aficionado should do at least once, as this cigar is part of history since it was smoked by the “British Bulldog” himself. This is a masterpiece.
Smoking time: 105 – 135 Minutes
