Romeo y Julieta
The Romeo y Julieta brand was established in 1873 by budding Cuban cigar enthusiasts Inocenio Alvarez and Manin Garcia. The cigars are full of character and have a very complex background, similar to the Shakespearean play the brand was named after.
Romeos are perhaps the most well famous Cuban brand out there due to the supreme quality of the cigars that they produce, which are considered some of the best of their size and shape. In fact, the brand was iconic right from it’s founding, ranking first place at numerous different blind tasting exhibitions between 1885 and the dawn of the 20th century. The gold medals that rest upon the brand’s logo are a homage to this achievement.
