I got box of these discontinued minutos from Estanco from Barcelona. I found few boxes in other store eventually.
I came back home after work, our national basketball team got to World Cup after 52 years of absence and they won group! In 1/4 final we played against Spain, the 2nd best team in the world. As an active amateur player I had to watch that game. So I decided to smoke something short, because I had only an hour.
Petit Princess smells weird. This is mix of my RyJ Belvederes from 2011 and Oliva V Melanio. Strange. However the smell was pleasant. The draw was perfect. A little tight but in good way.
First hint is tons of cedar. I think this is because they have 12 years on them. But... definitely they don't have that fruity/cherry flavour which is mark of RyJ. Beside cedar there are other woody flavour plus earthy hints. I had some burn issues but when ash felt down it's fixed.
Second half is strong woody, earthy profile with mix of toast and bread. I was very surprised because this small RyJ didn't remind typical RyJ. I can admin that I wouldn't find out if it was El Principe or RASCC, or mix of both in blind tasting.
It was one hour of very pleasant smoking. But I expected something different than cigars I know and they taste in the same way even if they have 1-2 years on them.
Unfortunately, we lost 1/4 final, but still huge respect for our boys. They played without fear like equal to equal.
My personal rate for RyJ Petit Princess: 88.
