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

90 / 100

"...A salty-and-spicy smoke whose leathery qualities are brought together by notes of coffee and walnuts, all making for a hearty cigar..."

Unimpressed to be frank, normal love a Romeo but this burnt uneven, tasted harsh st the start and with the length didnt get much to enjoy. Tail end was ok but cant help but think more length is required for this to be enjoyable

Great Smoke, Perfect Pub Pint when smoking outdoors here in the UK during colder months. Around 30 minutes of pure pleasure. Enjoyed it so much that I was a little sad when the Cigar ended! EXCELLENT! Buying some more now!

Great Little number. Very smooth, easy to draw, and easy to light with bags of smoke. Soft, subtly creamy flavors throughout. Began to burn quite hot towards that last third. Took just under 30 minutes to smoke so would be great during the work day. Easily my favorite RyJ to date. Very similar in taste to the Partagas Serie D No. 6.

I am new to the world of cigars - this is my first review! The R&J Petit Churchill is the first cigar I have smoked that wasn't the regular corona shape; perhaps the slightly larger gauge was the reason I found this one a little more difficult to get a good light. Once lit it burnt well, I think I only had to relight twice, both times were really just precautionary re-heats. I enjoyed the pre-light draw, a lot of flavour and a very easy pull - Although I didn't do this on my previous smokes, so I have nothing to compare it to! The first half was pleasant enough, very smooth and with a raisin flavour coming through. I don't have a particularly sensitive palate, so it was nice to be able to pick up a bit of flavour with this smoke. There was occasionally a slightly herbaceous taste creeping in around the half-way point. Finally, there were mild coffee flavours - the last third being the most enjoyable. I'd thought that the Petit Churchill would be very spicy on the lips, but it was surprisingly mild in that sense. All in all an enjoyable 40-45 minute smoke, although I was expecting slightly more bite, I would definitely try again.
