Its special dimensions, unique in this Habanos vitola, make Wide Churchills a particularly attractive Habano for those smokers who appreciate the Habanos of heavy ring gauge and a balanced and aromatic blend.
Romeo y Julieta was created as Habanos brand in 1875. Its name originates in the literary tragedy of the same name written by William Shakespeare.
With the passing of the years, Romeo y Julieta has become one of the best-known and appreciated Habanos brands, to a great extent due to the prestige that the “Churchills” vitola has contributed to it.
Winston Churchill became a devotee of Romeo Y Julieta, following his visit to Havana in 1946. His name has been commemorated by using it to describe the marque’s favorite cigar size – Romeo Y Julieta Churchills. Launched at the 12th Festival del Habano in 2010, the Wide Churchill boasts a 55-ring gauge to coincide with the trend for stouter girth vitolas. Romeo Y Julieta’s balanced and aromatic blend of selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone makes it the classic medium-bodied Habano. Made using the Tripa Larga, Totalmente a Mano – long filler, totally made by hand – technique.
When smoking this heavy ring gauge, the brand enthusiast can appreciate its balanced and aromatic blend, prepared with selected leaves from the region.
