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

An easy drawing, medium flavour, light strength cigar that is sweet in taste from the first to the last puff.


90 / 100

"...A flat-headed robusto with a healthy-looking, medium claro wrapper. Floral at first, this cigar becomes earthy and spicy with big notes of walnut and a bit of maple syrup..."

I bought these on the basis that they would potentially be a shortened version of the full Churchill which is a beautiful cigar and smoke, the cigar it's self looks good with a well defined triple cap, upon lighting the draw was perfect but gradually got tighter, I think these cigars contains an excessive amount of tar that builds up in the cigar reducing the draw, the flavor is of toasted tobacco at first then a fruity citrus taste that ensues to the end, a big problem was severe uneven burning issues which could not be solved by rotating the cigar, I had to keep using my lighter to burn off the uneven rapper, I have smoked 3 of 10 and this has happened to all three cigars, I also think the tar coats the inside of your mouth thus reducing the ability to taste, the cigar also went out twice thus having to relight, to my mind there is no comparison to the full Churchill which I enjoy immensely, the ring gauge is also thicker 50 compered 47 and is a bit intimidating, will smoke another 3 or 4 then put another review on but at the moment I am not to overly impressed with these cigars
