Romeo y Julieta (cigarette)
Romeo y Julieta cigarettes were launched in Cuba in 1999, where they are made. They are currently owned by the Franco-Spanish company Altadis, which is a sub-section of British tobacco group Imperial Tobacco. They are sold in Brazil, France, Mexico, Spain, the Czech Republic, Germany, Japan, Paraguay and the United Kingdom. Made of the same tobacco as their older cigar namesakes, Romeo y Julieta cigarettes are notable for their very strong flavour. They comply with the European Union's tobacco laws.
The cigarette brand is produced by Habanos SA and BrasCuba, another Cuban tobacco venture.
