J·R FEATURED BRAND
Named for the Shakespeare masterpiece, this beloved brand is a survivor! Booms, busts, trends and embargos worldwide were no match for the iconic Romeo y Julieta, a trademark that has not only endured but has grown to be the one brand that cigar enthusiasts consistently seek out. With a lineage of over 130 years, this historic cigar is probably best known for its unparalleled consistency, meticulous blending and superior construction as much as it is for its classic literary name.
The famous brand got its start in 1875 and for the next two decades experienced a slow but steady growth. Around the turn of the century, the company went through a major change as a local tobacco firm called Rodriguez Argüelles y Cia purchased the small but promising business… and that is where Romeo y Julieta really came into its own. Today, Romeo y Julieta caters to a wide array of cigar-smoking aficionados.
With so many options in the Romeo y Julieta lineup (many of which have received some very impressive scores in popular cigar magazines), there’s no doubt that all kinds of enthusiasts out there have a special place set aside in their humidors for their standby go-to styles. From the straightforward, medium-bodied classic 1875 to the impossibly smooth and mild Vintage, all bases are covered. For those wanting a more substantial smoke, the aptly named Havoc is bound by a spicy leaf and finished with a rich Habano wrapper from Nicaragua to create one of the finest and most enjoyable Romeos to date.
From humble beginnings as a small regional cigar company to a nationally recognized brand consistently sought after throughout the years, Romeo y Julieta cigars have proven to be loyal companions for serious smokers. Named for a heartbreaking tragedy, we cigar fans know that these smokes are anything but.
