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

Very nice draw and burn. Mild, fruity flavours with undertones of leather and earth.

----

90 / 100

"...A skinny, veiny cigar with easygoing notes of flowers and herbs balanced by spicy, peppery undertones and sweet hints of caramel and cocoa..."

Not great in my opinion. Really tight drew and for the money there are 100s of cigars from the new world which would out smoke these by miles. Wouldnt recommend these to a friend but a great cigar to give to someone who has no clue about cigars, who will most likely never smoke one again and just wants to smoke a cuban. They are not complete rubbish and I know guys who love these (cuban snobs). Dont get me wrong, I love a good cuban, but these arent that imo!

I am sitting here in the garden under the patio heater with a glass of Johnnie Walker black label and one of these fantastic cigars, both of which I picked up for a steal duty free. I have tried plenty of Cuban cigars now and find myself returning to R and J all the time. Price and time allowing the Churchill and Wide Churchill are sublime. However I have found these no 2 to be the most consistent cigars that suit my taste. Iíve found with a lot of other brands that Iíve had more and more inconsistent ones, some absolutely unsmokeable. These start of very mild but develop just before half way leaving a fantastic spicy mouth. Think I am gonna stick with these from now on. Perfect 45-60 minutes of heaven.

The final cigar from my Jack Frost sampler, but not my first ever RyJ. Smoked this in two halves. The first half I smoked left me a bit bored and disappointed, I couldnít really identify any flavours, was mostly just a smooth, creamy smoke. Not unpleasant by any means, just somewhat uneventful. However the second half, the following day, was a delight :S really rich, spicy and woody... Iíve smoked a dozen or so Cubans now and, so far, maybe itís just me but, unless itís an astonishing cigar, the spicy, earthy flavours never kick in until about halfway down the cigar. This one was typical of that along with the Jose L Piedra Cazadores cigar which also left me cold until the halfway mark, and then turned beautiful! Iíve never aged a cigar as Iím yet to purchase a humidor so perhaps with age flavours develop and present immediately on lighting up the cigar, I donít know... This was a good cigar but I will sample other Cuban brands before returning to RyJ, I think theyíre maybe a touch over-hyped. I find Montecristoís richer in flavour and complexity.
