Romeo y Julieta Short Churchills - 25 cigars [4.9" x 50]

The Romeo y Julieta Short Churchill is a wonderful vitola, that is never too powerful.

  • • The Short Churchill keeps only the very best of his big brother, skipping the uneasy first puffs.
  • • This shorter format allows modern cigar smokers to enjoy a true Cuban stogie when time is of the essence.

This cigar is creamy and complex with ample draw and good construction.

Presentation:

The Romeo y Julieta Short Churchill comes in a cedar dress box of 25 cigars with Habanos Packing Code CB-UW-C/L-12,13-n-25

Dimensions:

Length: 124mm

Diameter: 19.84mm

Ring Gauge: 50

Shape:  Short Churchill

Appearance:

The Colorado shade wrapper is a little toothy to the touch, light brown in color and the veins are a little visible. The cigar is tightly rolled and well packed, it is pretty firm from the head to the foot when squeezed. Well made triple cap. The cigar sports a second and elegant golden band that reads “Short Churchills”.

Smoking Notes:

Before lighting up:

Unlit, the wrapper smells like wood with a nice tobacco flavor. The cold draw is typical Cuban tobacco and some wood and spices notes.

Burn/Draw:

The construction on the Short Churchill is top-notch, as the draw on this cigar is great and effortless throughout. The burn line is slightly wavy at the beginning, but it is correcting itself further on, it doesn’t require any attention. At the foot, about an inch of a dark grey ash holds on firmly. Generous billows of smoke are generated at each draw; the smoke has an earthy aftertaste.

Initial third:

Woody flavors greet you upon lighting the cigar, leaving some saltiness on the lips and on the finish. The dominant flavors in the first third are of wood and earthiness, while some pepper notes, not too spicy, are also present. The smoke is creamy and thick.

Middle third:

In the second third, the saltiness from the first third is gone and now there is ample space for some tasty tobacco, leather and still some spiciness from pepper. Some darker notes are also appearing around the halfway point, we get some mineral, some earth hints and some strong espresso notes. The undertone of espresso lingered until the final third. The body of the cigar is now in the medium range, while the finish is a bit stronger. The smoke is now whiter and less creamy.

Final third:

In the final third, the woodiness is joined by some notes of bitter chocolate. The spiciness is still around, but never over powerful. The flavor profile is typical Romeo y Julieta, with some hints of fruits here and there. The Short Churchill leaves you with a smooth, rich finish and takes you by surprise and leaves you with your hunger...

In summary, a splendid, medium- to full-bodied cigar that is well made with a good burn and smooth draw producing lots of smoke loaded with classic Romeo y Julieta flavors. Should be even better as the years roll by.

Smoking time: 45 - 90 Minutes

Good cigar to age. , 5/19/2021
By David
A good cigar to age. Tastes a little green until halfway down, then the flavor comes out nicely. I really enjoy the after taste.

Truly lovely cigar. Excellent with a claret or even a good coffee. Great full flavour (for me) and taste after taste. First time buying but will definitely buy again.
Best RYJ I ever had , 4/16/2021
By Grumpy Grandpa
This is my first Habano RYJ and it is great. Looks beautiful in box but even better in hand. Pre light got notes of spice and something else I couldn’t quite make out. I cut a little more off the cap than intended but still drew great throughout. Great smoke output and flavor. Will purchase again
Short but Perfect , 3/3/2021
By Abdullah
The Romeo Y Julieta Short Churchill is a perfectly balanced , medium flavoured robusto cigar. Pre-light aroma is chocolate with a nice amount of that Cuban barnyard, a nice combo of sweetness and dry earthiness. The pre-light draw is very clean and crisp with a touch of hay and some wood. Finishing up in the final third the cigar transitions a bit into a more mellow profile . Result 5 star !

Need some time. Box was on young side. Notes of cherry, cedar and earth. A mild cigar but should only get better. Good draw medium to mild. With a little time I see them getting better. Great construction, combustion and burn. Just need some time.
