Romeo y Julieta Short Churchills LAT Feb 2018

With this Romeo y Julieta Short Churchill, I'm not going to lie to you, I wasn't really looking forward to it that much before I lit it. The reason? In comparison to the balanced, nuanced flavours of my ABO Ago 18 RyJ Exhibicion No.4s, the distinctive classic RyJ flavours of my UEB Jun 19 RyJ Churchills and rich and delicious SMA Sep 20 RyJ Petit Royales, these RyJ Short Churchills fall short, if you can excuse my pun.

It's not like they don't have flavour, on the contrary they do. It's just that the flavour blend in this box thus far has been 'run-of-the-mill' basic and ordinary, in a general sense, and I've neared the end of it. My problem is that I have better options when it comes to Romeo y Julieta in my humidor.

This RyJ Short Churchill had a decent amount of cocoa, toasted tobacco which complimented and didn't overwhelm the other flavours, cherry and some turkish delight and anise sweetness on the edges. It didn't have construction issues and I didn't need to re-light it at all. It was just didn't excite me at all and at about halfway through the final third I was thinking of my next cigar.

After seventy minutes it was over...and I had forgotten about it. That is, until it was time to write up this short review on it, then I recalled how unremarkable it all was again!
