Review Notes: I've enjoyed two of these Churchills. One in late 2003 and one this month. This cigar is milder than an Esplendido. The appearance is excellent, nice coloring and the gold label is attractive. This cigar burned evenly, to my surprise - it really adjusted for what was a poor light. The flavor of this cigar eluded me - it contained a "softness" to the draw that I could not place - almost like Earl Grey with cream? Please keep in mind, that no cigar really TASTES like Earl Grey with cream unless you've just dropped the cigar into a cup of Earl Grey with cream! What I mean is that the flavor reminded me of the soft aftertaste left in your mouth after having Earl Grey with cream. The cigar was bit on the high side considering that you easily can purchase a Padron Anniversary, Fuente 8-5-8, Carlos Torano, Montecristo Serie VI for far less with similarly smooth and pleasant flavors - many of these cigars would not be as refined a smoke as the RyJ, but $28 was a bit steep for this cigar. I believe $10-$15 would be a deal for this cigar. With this said, it would be folly to destroy the cigar's rating for what I agreed to pay for it...

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (6) No (7)
