Themed to honour the Year of the Rat, 8 cigars are housed in a stylish Romeo red lacquered box and are dressed with an additional foot band. A branded red velvet outer casing completes the impressive presentation. Each cigar measures 6 1/8” (155mm) x 55 ring gauge and is referred to as a Maravillas No.3 in the factories of Cuba, sharing its dimensions with the Montecristo 520 (2012 Edición Limitada). As the number 8 is considered an auspicious or ‘lucky’ number in Chinese culture, the Romeo y Julieta Maravilla 8 is sure to appeal directly to cigar enthusiasts from this part of the world and collectors globally.
The 21st century has seen the arrival of two additional sizes using the name. The first called Short Churchill, a robusto size that had been missing from the range, was added in 2006. The second launched as the 21st Festival del Habano in 2010, was Wide Churchills, which boasts a 55 ring gauge to mark the trend amongst enthusiasts for stouter girth vitolas. 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. Today Romeo y Julieta is well known around the world as ever and offers the widest range of long filler sizes in any Habano brand.
