Named after William Shakespeare’s tragic lovers, the origins of Romeo y Julieta as a Habano date back to 1875. Romeo y Julieta’s balanced and aromatic blend of selected filler and binder leaves from the Vuelta Abajo zone make it the classic medium bodied Habano.
Montecristo is the best known and probably most appreciated brand of Habanos throughout the world. It forms the benchmark for many Habanos smokers against which other brands are judged. Montecristo’s perfectly balanced blend of filler is created exclusively with selected leaves from the Vuelta Abajo region. Its distinctive medium to full flavour and distinguished aroma appeal equally to the new and experienced.
Cohiba is the flagship brand of Habanos. It was created in 1966 for President Fidel Castro himself and was made at the then top secret, but now world famous, El LLaguito factory. At first, it was only seen outside Cuba as gifts for heads of state and visiting diplomats. The Cohiba has a creamy sweetness to begin with, following with beany mocha flavours and a medium tobacco taste.
Hoyo de Monterrey owes its origin to the town of San Juan y Martinez, which lies at the heart of the Vuelta Abajo zone. The flavour of Hoyo de Monterrey’s blend makes it an attractive choice for those who seek a delicate yet aromatic Habano that is lighter to the taste but with great elegance and complexity.
Winston Churchill became a devotee of the brand. Following his visit to Havana in 1946, his name has not only been commemorated on a band but it has also served to describe the marque’s most famous size – Romeo y Julieta Churchills. The Short Churchill was the first medium flavoured robusto from Cuba, it’s modern shape proving to be an ideal way to update the famous association.
This elegantly presented extra length Corona, cedar-wrapped in an aluminium tube, was the first new vitola to be added to Montecristo’s original range in the late 1950s. This cigar is capable of delivering gorgeous, sweet and sour flavours; quintessential of a good Cuban cigar.
If there is one particularly famous cigar factory in Havana, it is Partagas. The best known of all Partagas is the Serie D No. 4, the robusto size that formed part of the legendary Partagas alphabet series that dates back to the 1930’s. Immediately recognisable by its deep, earthly flavour, the character of its blend springs from a selection of filler and binder tobaccos grown in the Vuelta Abajo zone, and chosen for their unmistakable richness of flavour and aroma.
