Additional Information

Steve's Opinions

I had the chance to smoke a Romeo y Julieta Petit Churchill a few weeks after it’s launch, and to be honest my impressions of the Cigar were indifferent. My recollections regarding the Petit Churchill that it had a prominent toasted tobacco note, with a hint of that dark cherry that I find is a common characteristic in the brand. The Cigar was decent enough, but I just couldn’t see how the Petit Churchill could fit in my smoking rotation.

The small smokes sector is already quite saturated, with an influx of new releases over the last few years. The Montecristo Petit Edmundo and Hoyo de Monterrey Short Robusto rule the Short Robusto format, so it’s going to be difficult for the Petit Churchill to find it’s niche. This maybe a Romeo y Julieta Churchill too far.
