Romeo y Julieta

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 the widest range of Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano – long filler, totally hand made – sizes available in any Havana brand.

Flavour: Medium


CHURCHILL

VITOLA: Julieta No.2
RING GAUGE: 47
LENGTH: 7 inches
Romeo’s time honoured star size. The vitola dates from the early 20th  century. Churchill permitted his name to be used on it from the mid 1950s. Imposing, statesmanlike; a commanding size that rewards the smoker with richly developing flavours.


WIDE CHURCHILL

VITOLA: Montesco 
RING GAUGE: 55 
LENGTH: 5 1/4 inches 
Here is one of the new generation of extra heavy weights which was released in 2010 and remains a unique size in the standard Habanos S.A. portfolio.


SHORT CHURCHILL

VITOLA: Robusto 
RING GAUGE: 50 
LENGTH: 4 7/8 inches 
For too long there was no robusto in Romeo’s  range,  so  the  arrival of the Short Churchill in 2006 proved most welcome. It was the first medium flavoured cigar from Cuba in this popular vitola. Hardly surprising, then that it has  been  a huge success.


PETIT CHURCHILL

VITOLA: Petit Robusto
RING GAUGE: 50 
LENGTH: 4 inches
2012  saw  the  arrival of the third and possibly the last of the additions to Romeo’s famous Churchill line. Petit Churchills join the Short and Wide Churchills to offer a range of heavy girth vitolas for all occasions.


EXHIBITION No.3 - VINTAGE 2009

VITOLA: Corona Gorda
RING GAUGE: 46
LENGTH: 5 5/8 inches
As good a Corona Gorda as you will find; medium flavoured with an elegant depth and length. Now discontinued, but we have some stocks remaining.


EXHIBITION No.4

VITOLA: Hermoso No.4 
RING GAUGE: 48 
LENGTH: 5 inches
This was the nearest cigar to a robusto in Romeo’s range for a long time; slightly thinner (48 ring gauge) but longer (5 inches). Don’t forget that it also comes in wonderful cabinet selection bundles  of  50 cigars.

 

 

 


CAZADORES

VITOLA: Cazadores 
RING GAUGE: 44 
LENGTH: 6 3/8 inches
A Lonsdale size, more or less, presented in bundles  wrapped in silver foil. The name translates as ‘Hunters’, which means it is at home in our catalogue.


BELICOSO

VITOLA: Campana
RING GAUGE: 52 
LENGTH: 5 1/2 inches
Not a size or shape that is widely associated with Romeo, but it has been around for decades offering a reliable, easy drawing passport to the brand’s elegant, medium- bodied taste.


PETIT CORONA

VITOLA: Mareva 
RING GAUGE: 42
LENGTH: 5 1/8 inches
A mellow, well-balanced, pressed cigar, which, along with its round counterpart the No.2 tube, is by far the most popular Romeo size.


JULIETA

VITOLA: Julieta No.6
RING GAUGE: 33 
LENGTH: 4 3/4 inches
A cigar created by Romeo with his partner in mind as the name suggests. A perfectly good smoke for both genders however, and is presented in a beautiful tin of 5.


PETIT JULIETA

VITOLA:  Entreactos 
RING GAUGE: 30 
LENGTH: 4 inches
The factory name tells us the size was designed for intervals at the theatre (Entreactos translates to Between Acts). There are many more reasons for short smoking breaks these days.


CEDROS No.1 - VINTAGE 2016

VITOLA:  Cervantes 
RING GAUGE: 42
LENGTH: 6 1/2 inches
It is easy to forget that Romeo has a Lonsdale in its range. Here it is wrapped in a cedar sheet that imparts a fragrant top taste to its medium bodied blend. A well made cigar. Now discontinued, but we have some stocks remaining.


CEDROS No.2

VITOLA: Corona
RING GAUGE: 42
LENGTH: 5 5/8 inches
You should remember that a Romeo Cedros No.2 is a Corona, whereas a No.2 (Tubos) is a Petit Corona. Armed with this knowledge, you have here a classic Cuban Corona with added fragrance imparted by its cedar wrap.


CEDROS No.3

VITOLA: Mareva 
RING GAUGE: 42
LENGTH: 5 1/8 inches
In line with Romeo’s Cedros code, the Cedros No.3 is a Petit Corona. It is as good a cigar of this size as you will find; an easy and refined smoke.


PETIT ROYALES

VITOLA: Petit Royales
RING GAUGE: 47
LENGTH: 3 3/4 inches
This is an entirely unique size and will currently be the shortest cigar within the Romeo y Julieta range. However although it is short, the Petit Royale has a ring gauge of 47, making it a far bigger and more rewarding smoke than it perhaps first appears.


No.1 TUBOS

VITOLA: Corona
RING GAUGE: 40
LENGTH: 5 1/2 inches
The Romeo y Julieta No.1 tubos cigar is the largest of the three tubos cigars and is very similar in taste to the No.2 and the No.3. The tobacco is of medium taste and has notes of nuttiness, smoked wood and leather with a lovely floral aroma.


No.2 TUBOS

VITOLA: Petit Corona
RING GAUGE: 42
LENGTH: 5 1/8 inches
The Romeo y Julieta No.2 Tubos cigar is a classic of the brand. Larger than the No.3 yet smaller than the No.1, this cigar carries essentially the same taste as the other tubos. The tobacco is medium in flavour combined with a variety of flavours to create a very complex cigar.


No.3 TUBOS

VITOLA: Petit Corona
RING GAUGE: 40
LENGTH: 4 5/8 inches
The Romeo y Julieta No.3 Tubos is a medium in strength, robust and complex cigar, characteristic of the Romeo y Julieta brand. The Cedar lined tube aids the development of the nutty, floral, herbal and woody flavours, among others.
