Romeo No. 3 Tubos

Excellent weather over the weekend – temps in the low 80’s, light breeze, beautiful blue sky, ideal conditions for a fine cigar outdoors!

Anyway, I was in downtown Kirkland at the VIP seating area by Starbucks on Friday night and a friend of mine asked me if I’d like to try a Romeo y Julieta No.3 (Cuban) cigar?

Of course I said “no”.

Yeah, right…

Coronitas 4.6″ x 40

So what did I think?

Overall I liked it – relatively smooth medium bodied cigar with a little oomph. Draw, burn and smoke output were just fine. Interestingly enough, my lovely wife was smoking an Oliva Serie G Churchill right next to me and her cigar required a re-light, so she asked if I’d light it for her? So here’s the bad part about smoking a Cuban cigar – sometimes that inexpensive Nicaraguan cigar will taste far superior to the obsessively expensive Cuban. (did I say that out-loud?) I was perfectly happy with the R y J until I took a puff of the Oliva, that’s when my disappointment set in. Yes, unfortunately the Oliva was a much better smoke.

Side note:

Just a reminder that there’s a free outdoor cigar event up at the Snoqualmie Casino this Saturday from 1pm to 4pm. You might also want to buy your tickets to the Washington Cigar & Spirits Festival while you’re up there – discount tickets are available the 14th through the 20th at the casino box office. After the 20th the price goes up to the regular price.

See you this weekend!
