It's hard to not be impressed by the presentation of the Viejo “E”, as it looks to be a cigar with excellent construction. The cigar exudes class from top to bottom, and its box-pressed shape and triple cap are done to perfection. The wrapper is chocolate brown in color and oily. There are very few minor veins that are visible, and it appears to be as smooth as can be. The cigar feels firm to the touch and I cannot detect any soft spots. The decorative band near the head displays the Romeo y Julieta name over a black and gold color scheme. As for the pre-light aroma and taste, both are sweet.

There are no major negatives when it comes to the Romeo y Julieta Viejo’s burn. The draw is a bit tight at the beginning, but improves over time. There's a nice volume of thick smoke. The burn requires no touch-ups or re-lights and remains even on its own from start to finish. The ash is solid and gray in color. Smoking time is about 90 minutes.

Flavor is where the Viejo “E” tends to shine. The cigar is medium-bodied, but it offers a good amount of flavor to go with its smoothness. The Romeo y Julieta Viejo kicks things off with some sweetness that is soon joined by mild spice and earth. The mild spicy kick continues into the second third and blends with wood and leather. The final third combines more sweetness and rich caramel for a tasty finish.

The Romeo y Julieta Viejo “E” is a solid cigar in all of its aspects. It has great looks, an even burn, and enjoyable flavor. A single retails for around $6, which seems reasonable. It’s also available in packs of five or boxes of 20.

The Romeo y Julieta Viejo “E” earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.
