altSummer keeps churning along and so does Puff.com.  Today we are bringing you two reviews that will take a closer look at the Romeo y Julieta Habana Reserve Robusto and the Sencillo Platinum Double Robusto.

Romeo y Julieta Habana Reserve Robusto

The Romeo y Julieta Habana Reserve comes to us from the folks at tobacco giant Altadis USA.  I’ve sampled many Romeo y Julieta cigars in the past, and they’ve managed to leave a solid impression.  How this particular line differs from the rest, however, is in the fact that it’s labeled as the most full-bodied selections from the brand.  Will I have a powerhouse on my hands, or will the Habana Reserve provide just enough of a kick to keep me interested?  It’s time to light up a Robusto and find out.

The Romeo y Julieta Habana Reserve Robusto measures 5 x 54.  There are several other sizes available in the line as well: the 4 ¼ x 46 Love Story, 4 ½ x 54 Short Churchill, 5 x 54 Rothchilde, 5 5/8 x 45 corona, 6 x 54 Titan, 6 x 56 Toro, 6 1/8 x 52 Belicoso, and the 7 x 54 Churchill.  The cigar features a filler that consists of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobaccos.  The wrapper and binder are both Nicaraguan.  The Habana Reserve is handmade at the La Flor de Copan factory in Honduras.  As for the strength, it’s listed as full-bodied, as mentioned in the intro.

The Habana Reserve has an inviting appearance thanks to its gorgeous chocolate brown wrapper.  It has a nice sheen of oil that is visible and a few very minor veins.  Construction appears to be solid, which is not much of a surprise considering the brand.  I feel no soft spots as I give the cigar a squeeze.  A large band near the head displays the Romeo y Julieta logo and the Reserve moniker.  The band’s ornate brown and gold color scheme blends in nicely with the wrapper and is eye-catching.  Before lighting there’s sweet cold taste and an aroma that is spicy.

I don’t recall ever having burn issues with Romeo y Julieta cigars in the past, and the Habana Reserve Robusto is no exception.  The cigar’s burn is even from beginning to end and it has a perfect draw.  There’s plenty of thick smoke.  No touch-ups or re-lights are necessary at all.  The ash is light gray and holds for about an inch.
