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

My personal review of the Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill Cuban cigar At first sight it is a beautifully looking decadent cigar with double banding and fantastic construction, 55 RG it is not the choice of most but the larger gauge helps th e flavours of citrus and mild pepper flow through so easily with a perfect draw mild to medium strength 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 may become your favourite cigar, I know it is certainly mine now my previous favourite was the Hoyo Epi 2 but the Wide Churchill is sheer indulgence with a superb aroma 95/100 an excellent Christmas cigar

This was my first cigar of this size range. Unfortunately i didn't buy it here as i wanted the humidifying tube with it (which is pretty damn good)........... perhaps this will act as a recommendation for the site :) First off, it lasted WAY longer than the 45 minutes generally claimed on this cigar, near enough an hour and a half actually. It was an absolute b***h to light (use a blowtorch rather than matches for this one), and once it was lit, it burned very uneven for the first twenty minutes, which i was very careful to rotate to even out as it burned. I think there may have been something wrong with the one i bought, as the draw was fairly tight, and i would have to go nuts on it to get a decent mouthful of smoke. The huge amount of drawing it needed for some decent smoke caused it to run VERY hot. It would probably have lasted even longer if that weren't the case. Even trying as hard as i was to keep it burning properly, it went out. So i had to brush off the ash and relight it quickly while it was warm to avoid further struggle. From there on, it was lovely. I'm guessing there was something wrong with it about half way up. The smoke was beautiful all the way through (when i could get it during the first half). I made the monumental error of smoking this on an empty stomach (i know, i know), and had to sleep off a couple hours of nausea. So do not make the same mistake! Overall, very nice, but due to manufacture errors (as well as my own), i couldn't enjoy it as i probably would have.
