The Wide Churchill is one of the latest additions to the Romeo y Julieta Stable. The cigars exude smooth, subtle aromas that are the hallmark of the medium flavoured Romeo y Julieta brand.
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.
