Romeo Y Julieta AnejadosChurchill Cigars – Aged Box of 25 – In Cedar Lined Tubes
Length: 7″ Ring Gauge: 47 Strength: Medium
Romeo y JulietaChurchill Anejados cigars are presented in their original labelled boxes and original silver aluminium tubes and are the latest vitola to be added to the A?EJADOS or Aged range. The concept was introduced by Habanoss.a. in 2015 and there have been five releases since. However the R&J Churchill is the first vitola to be presented in tubes which like the tobacco used, date back to a period several years ago when they were laid to rest.
Like its predecessors, the cigars have been resting for between 5 to 8 years in the perfect climatic conditions of Cuba. This will afford the cigars a mellow, more refined taste as the blend of the filler leaves meld together over time realising their full combined potential.
The cigars are presented in boxes of 25 and carry a second band to identify that they are A?EJADOS. There is also a sticker on the box lid and like other Habanos Specialities, supply is limited to the quantity initially laid down to age.
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? Rodr?guez, 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 Churchills.
