Romeo Short Churchill Just Awful-

This is without a doubt the worst cigar I have ever had. Tubed or not these are awful. Flat taste with no complexity and extremely dull from start to finish. We all here the rumors about tobaccos of other origins being blended into some island smokes. This definitely could be an example. Have tried three at 0, 3, and 6 months with no improvements. Avoid these unless there is a vast improvement.

This is interesting to read. When I tried my first one I thought they were horrible. When I tried a few of the tubos when they first came out I thought they were very young. I just tried another last weekend and I really enjoyed it. Mine have come so far in the past 6 months it's amazing. It was sweet and creamy with notes of citrus. Matter of fact I was thinking of buying another box. Maybe these are just not to your taste, or maybe yours need some more time to evolve. Try them again in 6 months.

I had the same experience with mine. I have put them to sleep since January and hopefully they will taste better soon.

Maybe the sick period is quite long for these when young?

From the initial release. I sure hope they get better. No harm though as lots to choose from out there.

Re: Just Awful- Romeo Short Churchill

These are way too young for smoking now. Very green tasting. Don't believe rumors about tobacco being brought in from other countries.
