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..."

Even if you like big cigars, as I do, this is the right cigar to have with a "Sams Special" Bombay Sapphire Martini cocktail at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. -- the place where the late J. Edgar Hoover and his gunsel Clyde Tolson used to hang out. Its just a medium-bodied tasty smoke that goes well with gin and Washington gossip. written by gjk USA

This started badly, was good in the middle and ended badly. The flavour was full (by my standards) but with an underlying bitterness. A little green stuff in the cap added to the fun. Perhaps this one should have been sat on for a little longer...as a point of principle I finished it but I think I wouldnt have missed out if Id finished it halfway through. written by Benjamin

Thought I would like this one after enjoying other Romeo y Julieta cigars - Exhibition No. 4, No. 2 Tubos, Churchill, No. 3 Cedros - but was rather disappointed. Well made, but burned somewhat unevenly after the middle. Harsh at the start, but settled down to a strong but bitter and unsatisfying flavour. written by Andy Mellor, GBR

This mavera had nutty flavors, nothing special until smoked with a nice glass of grahams port(1984)near a fireplace with my best friends. written by Tarkan Nevzat GBR
