Customer Reviews of “CI Knock-Offs - Compare to Romeo y Julieta”
I thought "why not" on giving these a try, since the price is so good, and that I love Romeo y Julieta, and I'm very glad that I did! They honestly feel close to the quality of the name brand. Very enjoyable and easy smoke.

I have had a couple of these now with not a lot of rest. They are spongy and extremely loose. The Romeo y Julieta flavor is there. But that's it. Every draw brings small bits of leaf. Really disappointing. I'm hoping rest helps some of the issues.
KB of SHELBYVILLE, KY
A tasty inexpensive cigar. Mild to medium. Good construction, good burn...enjoyed for an hour.
VB of SAN FRANCISCO, CA
Pleasantly surprised at the quality of these! My first order of Knock-offs and I'll be back for more!
JS of Toronto, ON
Good flavor and smoke. Accurate to the real thing. Unfortunately, over half of these arrived with torn wrappers. The brand-name sticks in the same shipment had no such problem. I'll likely stay with the original from now on.
AV of Alexandria, VA
RyJ is my favorite smoke, but I must admit these are just as good at half the price. Had a friend try one and he thought it was the real thing.
RT of Baldwin, NY
Awesome!!
GB of East Meadow, NY
Great cigar pretty close to the real thing. It's a little airy not tightly packed but still can get an hour of smoke time. The cost is awesome, thanks CI.
JL of Port Orchard, WA
Good cigar. Hard to tell they were knock offs. Would order again.
RC of CROOKS, SD
I just got the Belicosos yesterday and WOW! This is truly a close copy of the real thing. They just need to go in the humidor for a rest, BUT I can't keep my hand out of the bundle. I fear they will never get to "rest" a sufficient amount of time because I can't stop smoking them up. I will get these again in the future. A real honest value which is rare in the cigar world these days. Most knock-offs are not worth the price, BUT THESE definitely are.
AL of Louisburg, NC
These were okay; spongy and burned quickly. Some other reviews were accurate to the cigars I received. For $2 a stick, I'll stick with some better "every day" options and pay full price for the RyJ quality construction.
KM of MIDLAND, PA
Great stick! Just had one after receiving it in the mail. I was really impressed with how CI ships your cigars! After spending $8 on a Romeo y Julieta at my local cigar store, I thought I would try the knock off. Glad I did. This stick burns even with a long ash, and tastes really close to the original blend. It is a well made cigar. I have a tee time with some golf buddies tomorrow. Can't wait to share these with them. They'll never no the difference! Nate from Nebraska
NM of Grand Island, NE
Very close to the true flavor of a R&J. Takes about five minutes to get the full flavor going. Over all a very good value.
