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

A wonderful smoke, a hint of sweetness on the lips and spice in the mouth. Light and cedary aroma with a pleasantly sweet vanilla flavour in the first half. Don't miss the opportunity to try a few.


87 / 100

"...A gorgeous little cigar with a rough but oily wrapper. It burns perfectly, and it's loaded with rich, earthy flavours such as coffee and cocoa. Powerful for its size..."

So this is my third Romeo Y Julieta Petit Coronas sat in my garden and 18 degrees outdoors with mild breezes. I kept it in my XIKAR travel case with a small Boveda humidity control pack for 3 weeks and the burn and draw are excellent. My other 2 got stodgy have way down but this is a lovely cigar I have to admit.

My first Romeo Y Julieta cigar so I was excited knowing the history of this famous Havana cigar. It is 23 degrees and a gorgeous blue sky day so I am sat outside on my patio. The first half of this cigar was very pleasant and a joy on my palate. The second half’s texture became soft and I had to relight the cigar twice. Given the choice the Por Larranaga Petit Coronas and H Upmann Majrstic offer better value and better quality of burn.

Enjoyed very much on my poker night recently. Had no issues whatsoever. Nice from start to finish.

Reviewed by Adam Cheal (July 2001) I had a pretty awful week last week and it didn't seem like anything would turn it around, wrong! I was chosen as one of this months taste challengers after only registering for the scheme a few days before and was told I would be receiving three lovely Havana's. I couldn't wait to find out which cigars I would be sent and was not disappointed when it was the Romeo y Julieta Corona. The delicate pleasure conduits were placed into my humidor to recover from the journey. Upon first inspection the three cigars didn't seem to be the best constructed for what I have come to expect from the brand, although they seemed fair enough if not a little rough and veiny. The three cigars varied from each other enough in appearance that I would guess they were likely to have come from a small pack rather than from a box of 25. The wrapper was a nice Colorado shade, perhaps slightly lighter, which I found unusual for such a mild smoke as the R y J. The aroma was pleasing but the cigars seemed to be rather young. The cigars did however seem to be quite firm which I perceived as a possible tight draw problem. With the initial pre judgements I decided to think about what really matters and arranged the objects needed for my cigar smoking ritual. First I usually take my time choosing just the right cigar (in this case it was the R y J corona), I then place it in my ashtray along with my guillotine cigar cutter and my cigar matches. The whole package is then transported to my smoking area. In this case it was a comfy chair in front of the TV. The Smoke! Cutting the cigars was uneventful and the caps came off clean with no flaking. I then had a brief toke just to confirm if my guess about the tight draw had been correct. I am pleased to say I was mistaken, the draw was clear. Lighting was easy and the mild smoke washed my pallet. The flavour was smooth with a mild, salty earth flavour. During the smoke however the flavour became a little inconsistent and I found it difficult to describe the overall taste. A good example of a young cigar. The second smoke was in contrast to the first cigar, the flavour started out almost medium to full, very unlike the R & J. But as smoking continued the flavour panned out and became more medium and what I would expect from the brand. The third cigar was like a dream. It smoked well, the flavour was consistently medium all the way through. The flavour was earthy, rich, extremely aromatic and with a hint of background spice. Truly joyous with everything a Havana should have! I could not believe that three cigars of the same brand and size could be so different. Overall I would say that the cigars are well constructed, had a pleasing taste and aroma but too inconsistent to recommend for any particular occasion. More likely a day time smoke as there was not quite enough punch for an evening smoke but too much for an early. I would not recommend the Romeo y Julieta corona to the beginner but experienced smokers will enjoy the cool spicy and surprising flavour, this one will keep you on your toes! Adam Cheal P.S. Thanks for the opportunity to participate the taste challenge C-gars.

I purchased this cigar in the 'medium flavoured cuban sampler'. I must say I was a little disappointed. Burn and construction were very good - however I found the cigar to be lacking in smoke aroma and the taste wasn't special in my opinion. I know these are a very popular brand but I find the H.Upmann an Hoyo de Monterrey equivalents superior to these.
