The unique dimensions in this vitola make the Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill a particularly attractive Habano for those smokers who appreciate a heavy ring gauge and a balanced and aromatic blend. This cigar was launched in 2010 and has soared in popularity. The Romeo y Julieta Churchill is probably the most valued Churchill cigar on earth and has won legions of awards.
Romeo y Julieta’s aromatic blend of selected leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region make it the classic medium-bodied cigar. Named after William Shakespeare’s tragic lovers, the origin of Romeo y Julieta as a cigar brand date back to 1875. The brand rose to international fame during the early years of the 20th century under the direction of Don “Pepin” Fernandez, who was amongst the first to recognize the attraction of the cigar band. During his heyday no less than 20,000 different bands were used in production.
Winston Churchill became a devotee of Romeo y Julieta and since his visit to Havana in 1946, his name has been commemorated on a band and used to describe the marque’s most famous size – 7 inches x 47 – the Churchill. Note that these are now shipping in plain packaging. Dimensions: Churchill 7 x 47.
