Since its birth in 1875, Romeo y Julieta has become one of the best-known brands of Habanos. The brand is particularly appreciated by enthusiasts who appreciate balanced blends with excellent aroma. Habanos, s.a. is pleased to introduce the first Reserva created by this brand after more than 135 years of history.

For the creation of this Reserva of Romeo y Julieta, the best tobacco leaves from the area (D.O.P.) in the Pinar del Río* region (D.O.P.) of Cuba harvested in 2008 are selected. All the leaves used in this Habano, filler, wrapper, and cap, were aged in a long and careful process lasting at least 3 years.

These leaves were carefully monitored for at least 3 years, cared for in a controlled evolution guiding the aging of these precious leaves. Finally, in the master hands of the expert cigar rollers who create Romeo y Julieta, they change shape to become a unique Habano that will satisfy the tastes of the most demanding Habanos lovers.

The emblematic Churchill vitola, maybe the most historical of the brand, has been chosen for this unique production cycle that comprises the first Reserva of Romeo y Julieta.

In addition, solely for this occasion, the historic Romeo y Julieta band sported by Churchill vitolas for decades has been resurrected, and will be combined with a second band indicating the Reserva status of these Habanos.

The entire process used in creating these Reserva respects the selection criteria expected of a unique product: from the long, careful process of aging the best tobacco from  (D.O.P.) for at least 3 years to the tasting committee comprised of more than 50 experts who have supervised the blend selected to guarantee a unique flavor, harmonious, balanced, and aromatic.
