Review Notes: I was all set to write a scathing review of the R&J Bully, then I thought I should try just one more. My in-laws gifted me with a box of Bullys for Christmas 2000. Unfortunately, every time I smoked one, it just wasn't a very pleasant experience, even after months in the humidor. So I buried them deep in the humi, and gave many away to friends. After not smoking any for about 14 months, I tried one last night--what a difference! It started out intensely spicy and peppery, just like I was smoking a jalapeno. It wasn't unpleasant, so I continued, and it settled down a bit but stayed deliciously spicy. It didn't ash until halfway, and at that point traces of coffee were mixing into the smoke. It was a good smoke, and I wish now I had saved more; only a couple are left. But I wouldn't recommend that anyone buy them, given how poor they started out and how long they stayed bad, even with aging. There are just too many other good cigars on the market that are fine for smoking right after purchase. My lower scores average out the few good smokes against the many bad ones.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (6) No (5)
