romeo y julieta wide churchills
Romeo y Julieta is one of the most famous Cuban-legacy cigar brands. The brand was created in Cuba in 1875 by Inocencio Alvarez and Manin Garcia. When Winston Churchill visited the Romeo factory in 1946, the company named his favorite cigar size, a 7 by 47 Parejo, the “Churchill.” As a result, nearly every other cigar brand makes a size called a Churchill. Today, Romeo y Julieta cigars are handmade in the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Honduras. Top-selling blends like Romeo y Julieta 1875, Reserva Real, and Vintage form a strong foundation in a portfolio that’s been extremely popular with aficionados for decades. Romeo y Julieta cigars are creamy, smooth, balanced, and well made.

Named after William Shakespeare’s tragic lovers, the origins of R&J 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.
Following the launch of the short Churchill in 2006, the slightly longer and much stouter Wide Churchill reflects the current fashion for heavy-ring gauge vitolas.
Winston Churchill became a devotee of R&J. 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.
Romeo y Julieta cigars use a balanced blend of filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone. Although similar in taste to the original Churchill, this cigar is shorter and more stout, producing a larger amount of smoke. Spicy, creamy and earthy favours make for an aromatic but light taste. A leathery note is maintained throughout the cigar with a peppery twang coming through towards the end.
This cigar is perfect for novice smokers, yet it’s without a doubt still a complex, innovative masterpiece.
