Romeo Y Julieta Wide Churchill Cigar – Single Tubed Cigar
Ring Gauge: 55 Cigar Length: 130 mm / 5.1 inches Body: Medium
Launched at the 2010 Habanos Festival in Havana, Cuba, the Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill’s is the new addition to the already famous family. In line with some of the other recent ‘short’ versions of existing cigars, this new Romeo will give a mild to medium smoke with a slightly floral note, a smooth creamy smoke.
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.
