In 1975, Inocencio Alvarez and Manin Garcia started the Romeo Y Julieta cigar line named after the Shakespeare play. Since the brand launched, Romeo Y Julieta won many gold medals from 1885 to 1900. In 1903, Jose Rodriguez Fernandez bought the Romeo Y Julieta factory. Fernandez traveled to many parts of Europe and America, popularizing the Romeo Y Julieta brand among some of the wealthiest people. The noblest customer of the Romeo Y Julieta brand is Sir Winston Churchill. The Romeo Y Julieta line even made and named a cigar after Mr. Churchill himself. When smoked, the Romeo Y Julieta has a slightly bitter taste at first.
After a few pulls, a hint of sweetness peaks through that you just have to experience.
