Directions to Romeo and Juliet
Do not be fooled by the name of these powerful cigars: despite the fact that their name refers to the tragic work of Shakespeare, their cigars are completely removed from the romantic style, with vitolas such as Belicosos or Hunters.
They were the favorites of Winston Churchill, to whom many of the vitolas today are due. However, the feminine component, present in a vital way from the plantation to the assembly of the cigars, was not neglected by this brand that prides itself on having special cigars for the taste of women: the new Juliet No. 6, thin gauge and medium length.
