Romeo Y Julieta Churchills Cigars Pack of 3 – In Cedar Lined Tubes
Size 7 inches by 47 ring gauge.
A powerful cigar that begins the journey with a very smooth smoke.
Winston Churchill was seduced, to the point of making it synonymous with his name.
Smooth building to a strong smoke with complex flavors which include vanilla, coffee, tropicalfruit, wood, cocoa, nuts, herbs and flowers.
Named after William Shakespeare’s tragic lovers, the origins of Romeo y Julieta as a Havana 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 heyday no less than 20,000 different bands were used in the production of cigars.
Winston Churchill became a devotee of the brand and 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.
The 21st century has seen the arrival of three similarly named sizes. Short Churchills, a robusto size, were added in 2006. Wide Churchills, which boast a 55 ring gauge, were added in 2010 and in 2012 Petit Churchills joined the group.
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 Havana.
Today Romeo y Julieta is as well known around the world as ever and offers one of the widest range of tripa larga, totalmente a mano long filler, totally handmade sizes of any Havana brand.
