The Romeo Y Julieta cigars are presented in their original silver aluminium tubes and the original labelled boxes of 25, but they are also housed within a new outer casing, complete with the Añejados marks of distinction.
Differing from the standard production of Romeo Y Julieta Churchills, Añejado translates as ‘aged’ and in this instance indicates that the cigars have been aged, in Cuba, for between five and eight years before being shipped to distributors around the world.
The extra age should have allowed the cigar time to mellow, rounding off much of the vigour of youth and bringing a more balanced, refined and floral smoke.
The R&J Churchill is the first vitola to be presented in tubes and is also the first release to be a ‘standard’ line. All previous releases have been global brands but in ‘new’ sizes for the brand.
