The name of the brand comes from the tragedy written by Shakespeare. Unlike the tragedy, the brand tells a story of passion and love for cigars that is living even today. The brand was founded in Cuba in 1875, making it a pre-revolutionary brand. The exterior of each cigar shows the top quality hand-made work of the Romeo y Julieta factory. The premium taste of the cigars is given by the Vuelta Abajo tobacco. The area is famous for having a rich soil and an ideal humidity that makes tobacco grow beautifully. The strength of the cigars is medium, making them very popular and versatile. One of the greatest fans of the brand was the notorious Winston Churchill.
