Named after William Shakespeare's tragic lovers, the origins of Romeo y Julieta as a Habano date back to 1875.

The brand rose to international fame during the early years of the 20th Century under the direction of Don 'Pepin' Rodriguez, a talented promoter, who was amongst the first to recognise the power of the cigar band. During his hey day no less than 20,000 different bands were used in production.

Winston Churchill became a devotee of the brand. Following his visit to Havana in 1946, his name has not only been commemorated on a band but it has also served to describe the marque's most famous size - Romeo y Julieta Churchill.

The 21st century has seen the arrival of two additional sizes using the name. The first called Short Churchill, a robusto size that had been missing from the range, was added in 2006. The second launched as the 21st Festival del Habano in 2010, was Wide Churchills, which boasts a 55 ring gauge to mark the trend amongst enthusiasts for stouter girth vitolas.

Romeo y Julieta's balanced and aromatic blend of selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone make it the classic medium bodied Habano.

Today Romeo y Julieta is well known around the world as ever and offers the widest range of long filler sizes in any Habano brand.

Tasting Notes

The aroma is beautiful, and the construction and burn were flawless. The intoxicating and decadent vanilla and cream combination is the most unforgettable. One hell of a smoke.


90 / 100

"...Sweet and fruity with notes of coconut and cedar. There's an earthy undertone as well, but the smoke is a bit thin from the firm draw..."

Unfortunately the Churchill i purchased had some visible imperfections, with the wrapper coming away a bit at the cap and also at the middle of the cigar. Rectified it crudely as best i could. Thankfully when cut and lit the draw was good throughout. First half of the cigar was pleasant and enjoyable with only one minor touch up required. When i reached the second half, the flavours became less enjoyable and the cigar became prone to regular combustion issues, having to touch up the burn many times. I once read somewhere Churchill used to smoke half a stogie and then threw it away from my experience i can believe it. Disappointing smoke overall and not good value for money IMHO.

Absolute quality. Very smooth and complex without being overpowering or overwhelming. Great, almost bouquet smell upon lighting, which really was a pleasant aroma. It can take a while to get going probably due to the length but when it did I got lots of cedar tiny hints of cherry and some toasty type flavours. Every now and then Id get a hint of black pepper but it didnt linger for long. All in all a very refined smoke thats easy going and quite pleasurable to smoke. Would definitely buy more. A box is a must if you can afford it but Id sit them down for a few years to really enhance those gorgeous flavours.

Simply a stunning smoke. The flavours were complex but the cigar wasnt too strong. This is the perfect combination for me, lots of flavour but a cigar that doesnt knock you out. I have to say, very impressed with this one.

Reviewed by Michael Reed (June 2003) THE WINNER JUNE 2003!!!!!! I have a close friend who also enjoys cigars. We can't always afford them, but when we can we take the time to enjoy. I purchased a box of Romeo Y Julieta Churchill's from C.GARs in November of 2002, and decided to try the first 6 months later. Jorge, and I opened a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue, and took our respective seats on the porch. My porch looks out over a wonderful-wooded area with lots of wildlife. I opened the box of R&J's, and we looked at its contents. The first thing to note was the unbelievable aroma that emanated from the box. It was an earthy, hearty, deeply rich bouquet that enticed you to move closer for fear that it might escape. It didn't! As the even wore on I would occasionally pick up the box to taste the fragrance, and it never left. The sticks were clones of themselves. They were perfectly matched, and lined up it such a way that it was hard to believe that such perfection exists. Medium chocolate brown with a hint of tooth is how they presented themselves. There was a light oily sheen that made one think that they had been marinated some how, and left out to ripen. Jorge noted, when he picked up one of the smokes it was very firm, and commented on whether this might be a sign of being rolled too tight. We would soon find out! We spend some time inspecting the cigars. You can't help, but spend time looking, feeling, and touching such radiant treasures. The cap was identical on each stick. It made two wraps, and disappeared into the body of the cigar. The cut was even, and crisp. I lit the cigar. The flame caressed the foot in a gentle manner as it began its slow burn. As the cigar took the flame a wonderful earthy-chocolate trail arose suggesting a hint of what was to come. The experience began with a spicy build up that was peppery with notes of coffee bean. The draw was very nice, and allowed you to savor the smoke with ease. R&J Churchills of the past have been very disappointing due mostly to problems with their draw. That was not the case with this cigar. As the experience moved into its next phase (about a ¼ of the way) the peppery/bean gave way to a chocolate/coffee blanket that seemed to embrace each and every taste sensor in my mouth. What a smoke! Then just as it seemed it couldn't get much better a new partner joined the dance. Half way down the stick a woody taste attached itself to the experience. I looked over at Jorge, and noticed he was glancing off into space. As I too looked up the sky was creating a static light show. Or, at least that's what I call it when lighting moves sideways across the sky. It seemed to cut the huge cloud of cigar smoke that lingered just above our heads. We continued our journey. Jorge smiled, and I knew what was coming. Its like a running joke with us... its moronic, and cliche, but someone needed to say it anyway, "You know it doesn't get any better than this!" The experience ended with a long creamy finish that complemented the scotch perfectly. I'm also thinking a medium dry cabernet would have also been nice. Well, ...maybe next time. Lagging behind the lightening was a cool wind, and a light rain that calmed the evening even more. What a great experience!

R&J's not really my favourites but due to reputation I wanted to try this little number. Glad I did, jolly pleasant it is indeed. The first third is very mild and sweet, anyone would find it accessible. There is a sudden but welcome change at the beginning of the second third. Darker, stronger flavours as the stick wakes up and grows. This is now a medium cigar and a fine one at that. My only disappointments were that there was not another significant twist at the two thirds marker and that by removing the tight band the cigar was damaged and began unraveling. Probably my fault but annoying nonetheless less. If you are going to be hanging around early evening for quite some time, this is a very impressive cigar to relax with. Very good.
