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

The first noticeable aspect of this cigar is the feel and weight in your hand, it really does have a heavy feel to it in an impressive way. The construction is immaculate, the feel of the cigar is compact and complete with the traditional red and white band, complimented further by the addition of a gold band. The colour is rich and upon lighting, there is an instant taste of oak. The draw is smooth, medium to full bodied and the burn is even. Flavours remain similar throughout, a smooth and creamy flavour providing an elegant and relaxing smoke. The Short Churchill is another excellent option and well worth a try, but the Wide Churchill remains one of my favourite cigars. An excellent addition to any gentleman's collection.

If you are looking for a cigar with an effortless draw, with lots and lots of taste i.e. all the flavors of Churchill's favorite cigar with a medium body throughout suitable for all then look no further, this superbly constructed and decadently looking cigar follows the current trend towards the larger ring gauge cigar and once tried i don't think you will ever return to the petit coronas, with an excellent burn and an intoxicating aroma this cigar is an indulgence from beginning to end, ideal for any special occasion or just one and half hours of sheer bliss.

Smoking a Wide Churchill in Tribute to Trevor Grills, Member of the Fishermen s Friend's of Port Isaac Cornwall who died Monday, R.I.P. Trevor.

A beautifully looking decadent cigar with double banding and fantastic construction,the 55 RG is not the choice of most but once you try the Wide Churchill I don't think you would return to the petit coronas the larger gauge helps the flavours of citrus and mild pepper flow through so easily with a perfect draw mild to medium strength and an intoxicating aroma it is perfect for all from the beginner to the aficionado the resting cigar gives off lots of smoke so you definitely know it is still lit with an excellent burn Even if you only try this cigar once it is a fabulous experience and an ideal special occasion cigar for weddings, birthdays and dare i say it a great valentines gift

Just an amazing cigar - I was originally after a Partagas Serie E No.2 and when they were out of stock i was recommended the Wide Churchill by Romeo y Julieta. Having never previously gotten on with RyJ's I was very dubious but the sales clerk was adamant I would enjoy it as it was similar to what I was originally after. Having trusted this guy before on other recommendations I bit the bullet and bought one of these. WOW, just wow. The flavours were subtle yet full and complex. The condition of the cigar was perfect, it lit easily with a match and stayed reasonably even till just over the halfway mark where I think I forgot to pay attention to the burn as I was enjoying it so much. The ash was almost white, similar to what you get of the Hoyo de Monterrey's . needless to say I was very upset when it finished. This is def going to be part of my new stpale, maybe even more so than the Serie E
