This cigar is not quite what it should be I would recommend the Bella or the short Churchill, the cigar has hints of Romeo and Juliet but it's as if you took a beautiful whiskey drink and added a bunch of water to it the cigar is mostly filler it lacks the leather and it lacks the strong characteristics that make up the Romeo and Juliet,it's the light side of the cigar, to mild, will see how it ages,but typically when aging you have a good idea of what will become more smooth and what will develop, when you start out this weak it's hard to say, but I have a box to find out, I would not recommend this part of the family, go with the original Churchill, number 4, short churchhill, the bella, all better in flavor and experience,but I have to say dam do you get a lot of smoke frome these, so cool and abundant, but lacking the brand characteristic and make it so desirable

was lucky to pick up a box from Lous when it was available, awesome looking wide stick with its 55 ring, feels like a king with this wide cigar in the mouth. taste is pretty much similar to the romeo regular churchill, guessing this wide stick would need quite a bit of time to age in the humidor before its true potential is revealed. currently its got a rich sweetness aroma, can't wait to let it age to see how it improves.

I'm an experienced cigar smoker and I've smoked all the major Cuban brands and sizes. The RyJ Wide Churchill is by far one of the best out there. Great construction, burn and the flavor profile is complex and outstanding. Love the wide ring gauge. It stays cool and flavorful to the very end. Cigar bliss. I have no doubt some time will turn these into classics.

Quite the pleasurable experience lighting up this new edition from RyJ. Upon receiving the box I immediately smoked one and the first couple draws left me a bit worried. The deeper I got into the cigar the more impressed I became with bouquet of RyJ flavor. Letting the rest sit for a few days took care of any first draw disappointments. At a 55 ring gauge it's quite a mouthful but steps up the flavor from the short churchill. I rated the flavor a 9 because with some age these will get even better. I haven't been as impressed with a new release since the Monte Edmundo a few years back.
The Wide Churchill is the latest addition by Habanos S.A. to the Romeo y Julieta brand. Following the success of the Robusto sized Short Churchill which was launched in 2006, the slightly longer and much stouter Wide Churchill reflects the current consumer trend for heavy ring gauge vitolas. The cigars are packed full of smooth, subtle, medium flavored aromas.
