Romeo y Julieta Mille Fleurs - Cigars Being Smoked

A harsh Romeo y Julieta reminds myself that not all Cigars are ready for smoking right out the box.

Tuesday evening I smoked a young-ish Romeo y Julieta Mille Fleurs. I can't remember the box code, but I'm sure if was the second half of 2012. I paired the stick with some Assam Tea and got to work smoking the Cigar.

Draw perfect with no burn issues. I find that the Romeo Mille Fleurs need more time to develop than a Partagas Mille Fleurs. A 2012 Party Mille Fleurs is certainly a more enjoyable smoke than a Romeo IMO. I think you need a good few years (at least 3), before the Cigar is smoke-able from the box. I like that deep tobacco (how do you describe it?) profile of the Mille Fleurs, but it was covered by a harsh veil of flavour that will need to dissipate before the Cigar becomes something worthwhile to smoke.
