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

Lots of chocolate with a few hints of walnuts. Good draw, great construction, always a good smoke.


89 / 100

"...The draw of this reddish-brown corona is open and substantial without being airy. Nutty notes and spice are at the cigars core, along with cedar and a touch of grass..."

Found this to be a very pleasant smoke, notable chocolate notes in the 2nd third with an ending third that was more earthy. For myself I found this one to be around a 45min smoke and found it very pleasant and relaxing. This is one I would have again and recommend SEB

A bit disappointed with this one. Fantastic aroma but the actual smoke was a bit too mild for my liking without much flavour. That said there was nothing unpleasant about it - just not enough to impress.

To start of, this was my second no.1 this week and i wanted to wait until the second one, before I wrote my review. After smoking it twice I am in no doubt that this is one of my favorites till’ now. The pre-draw gives a nice and creamy taste that fills up your expectations. Because of lack of preparation, we were missing a cutter and therefore had to punch it. Surprisingly enough, I ended up with a really nice draw throughout the cigar. The first 1/3 of the cigar contains a nice and wholesome flavor that reminds me of a creamy, yet intense coffee. Later in the cigar, the smoke becomes more cloudy and the flavor turns more woody and earthy. Which, for me, is how it should be. The cigar is a nice 1 hour smoke and is definitely a good catch for the price. My first cigar contained a nice flavor and a creamy smoke until the very end, meanwhile the second one lasted a bit shorter. Both of the cigar had an even burn all throughout. For this price and size, this is definitely one of my new favorites.

I had a couple of these over Christmas and they are very nice cigars indeed and I don't see how anyone could be disappointed with these. The cigar is very well made with a nice oily wrapper. Burns evenly throughout. There is a pleasant smooth creaminess with dried grass undertone throughout but the overall character changes throughout starting off with caramel, developing to cappuccino/coffee with progressively increasing woody/earthy flavour going toward the end. A delicious cigar and one that you don't have to be a connoisseur to appreciate (I'm not) making it a solid choice as a gift for someone.

I have just sampled a pre-2008 example. Very good construction, though the cap unravelled. The smooth flavour was medium, and it was a satisfying smoke. A good standby, but I think one can do even better for the price.
