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.

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.

Reviewed by Kevin Reed (April 2003) I feel somewhat cheeky posting a review, my cigar smoking experience being relatively recent and definitely lacking but here goes. The cigar itself has a nice dark wrapper with a slight sheen to it. Looks really good. The smell coming from it is amazing, definitely the nicest unlit aroma I've come across. After toasting the end and lighting the cigar, the first puff or two tastes quite bitter but then settles into a taste like wood and leather, producing huge loads of smoke with no effort in the draw. I find it difficult to separate the moment from the cigar so I should explain that it's now 9.55pm and the other half is scowling at me from the sofa as I have the window wide open and its freezing. The combination of guilt and real enjoyment of this cigar is keeping me going. The situation makes it feel like "forbidden fruit". After the first third of the cigar, the ash is a nice dark grey with concentric circles in it from every draw I've taken and the burn is completely even. I'm not sure if anyone else does this. I've just left the room for a few seconds so that I can come back in and smell the aroma in the room. The heavy aroma of the "sweet smelling" smoke is pleasant and inviting instead of feeling oppressive. The first drop off of ash has now happened and I'm approaching the middle of the cigar. The flavour has rounded and some slight spicy after taste is being left in the mouth....very pleasant. The smoke is still cool, the taste is amazing and the other half is now asleep so all traces of guilt have disappeared. The flavour now has a slight taste of coffee and licking the lips gives ????no it can't be??..a hint of the much fabled "chocolate" ? I'm under an inch away from the band now and the smoke is starting to warm and a little of the bitterness from the beginning has returned but is not unpleasant. Unable to help myself (being a smoker) I've just inhaled a small draw and there's no harshness. Just a really smooth deep flavour. The lips are now starting to tingle and not wanting the cigar to end I've just unpicked and removed the band so I can stay with it. The smoke now has a nice warmth and the aftertaste has me craving a nip of rum so back in a moment. Yep....the rum definitely hit the spot. I now have warm, spicy tingling lips from the cigar and the warmth in the chest from the rum sliding down. I'm beginning to burn my fingers while drawing now....so it's time to reluctantly lay this one down, close the window and settle into the chair with the rest of the rum. God I enjoyed that one.....next time I'm going to have to get a bigger Romeo
