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.

Great smoke, good smooth even draw, lots of smoke, heats up nicely at the end with a more intense heat / draw and taste, i would put this cigar in the medium strength range. Really nice weight and feel to this stick as well. Looking forward to smoking my next one, as its sitting in my humidor at the moment!!!

Late Friday, long week at work, nice fire in the field and Glastonbury playing I'm the back ground on the day we left Europe! In celebration I could think of nothing better to try from the humidor that a R&J Churchill... First up, this is a substantial cigar, and I mean substantial. I have smoked short Churchills for a long time, but size wise this is a big step up. Flawless construction. As soon as I started to toast the foot I knew it was going to be good, and boy o boy was I right. Draw is perfect, smoke initially cold, smooth and so creamy. Burn is flawless all the way down. This cigar slowly warms up, and as it does it gets slowly stronger, but, it never looses the smooth creaminess, it just gains power, beautifully controlled power. An absolutely awesome smoke, the best R&J I've had by a mile. Up there with the Cohiba piramides and Ramon Allones specially selected at the moment. some more of these will definatley be in the humidor soon!

First impression;this is a very pretty cigar, the wrapper was smooth and flawless. The first inch was pleasant but extremely mild. From there on in the cigar delivered a more complex mix of flavours which intensified very gradually as the smoke went on. Burn was a little erratic but this didn't bother me as this is an immensly enjoyable cigar in a very mellow kind of way. Be prepared to burn your fingers, the flavours keep coming but never ever get close to being harsh. This is a real find. It's a mild cigar with hardly any pepperiness. Boy is it enjoyable. This one really put a smile on my face. I give it 6 stars. You would be crazy not to try one.
