Named after William Shakespeare’s tragic lovers, the origins of Romeo y Julieta as a Habano date back to 1875. 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 Churchills. Short Churchills, a robusto size was added in 2006 and in 2010, the Wide Churchills, which boast a 55 ring gauge to mark the trend amongst enthusiasts for stouter girth vitolas . These two great vitolas are very highly regarded.

Fantastic cigar with a thick ring gauge, great draw. Herbal and woody at first, sweet and spicy notes of gingersnap cookie and dark chocolate, a gorgeous texture. Close to an hour of smoking time.
