Romeo y Julieta Romeo No.2 Tubos are disjointed

R&J's bargain-basement Petit Corona-mano, although not exactly cheap. My first and last sample of this cigar had a dull mid-brown wrapper and wandered around the dry end of the flavour spectrum. Drawing gently on it released very faint earthiness and some smooth creaminess, but risked a power failure. The 'lights' went out twice in this mode. Encouraging a more vigorous burn emphasized mushroom and coriander seed notions while destroying the roundness. Either bland or zippy, it seemed. There was no happy medium here.

Good review! There are times when these are more "on" than your experience.

Mushroom and corriander? Wow, now that's a sensitive palate.
