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 am relatively new to cigars. I wouldnt recommend this for a beginner.

Great construction and burn. Lovely draw. Sweet wood and black pepper, then becomes more creamy with a floral perfume like finish. Towards the end becomes more floral. Not to my taste compared to other Cubans but a pleasant experience overall.

Well this little beautys what set me off smoking cigars. I had my first one while on holiday in Cuba a couple of weeks ago. On return home, I ordered this as part of a sampler pack, but unfortunately this one didnt smoke the same. I struggled to keep it lit and the draw was uneven. I understand these are hand made so hopefully this wont happen again. Ill still order more.

Had one of these in the tube as a treat one day walking through town. I must say it was right up there in my top ten cigars ever smoked. Nice size...very similar to a robusto size which I think are perfect sized cigars. It produced that many nice tastes and aromas that I couldn't quite put my finger on it. Let's just say it was spot on!

If you smoke one cigar in 2018, make it this one! Having finished my first one from a box in ten, it's really not hard to see why this made Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 Cigars of 2017. A perfect draw from start to finish, providing crisp, white ash and mouthfuls of creamy, peppery smoke. A truly sublime addition to RYJ's Churchill family, its short stature make it an unrivalled way to pass an hour. Expect consistent, sweet, toasty notes throughout, making for a cigar that you will not want to put it, simply put. And, at that price, I find it hard to believe that you'll find a better Cuban for your money.
