Romeo y Julieta Churchills 25p A/T (Tubos)
The Romeo y Julieta Churchill is considered THE Cuban Churchill by many purists. This substantial cigar is rustic, almost feral in quality. Initially, exclusively produced for Winston Churchill during World War II, the Churchill is a robust and complex cigar. It is rich and powerful, especially in the middle phase of the smoke which is where it gained its considerable reputation. A demanding Classic Cuban cigar, for the experienced smoker. Unfortunately there are a lot of fakes of this specific cigar in the market, destroying the reputation and partly the pricing. We only deliver cigars supplied directly from Habanos SA.
The starting is very lightly but it is a treat. The smoke seems to be thin in the mouth but it is very tasty. The smoke is also pungent and sweet smelling. There are a lot of sweet flavors. Taste of honey, caramel and some coffee. The after taste is very clean and short. Some toasted bread flavours are there in the background. A strong defined sweet cherry flavour as well.
The finest and most famous of the Cuban Churchills. This is a Churchill that redefines the concept of a ‘creamy smoke’. Powerful and yet disarmingly smooth, you can only be seduced by this remarkable cigar. Winston Churchill was seduced, to the point of making it synonymous with his name! Robust and complex in its multitude of flavors which include vanilla, coffee, tropical fruit, wood, cocoa, nuts, herbs and flowers, this Churchill is awesome! So fight them on the beaches or in the smoking room.

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’ Rodríguez, 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.
The 21st century has seen the arrival of two additional sizes using the name . The first called Short Churchills, a robusto size that had been missing from the range, was added in 2006. And the second, launched at the12th Festival del Habano in 2010, was Wide Churchills, which boast a 55 ring gauge to mark the trend amongst enthusiasts for stouter girth vitolas .
