Fans of the Romeo y Julieta Wide Churchill should start saving their pennies. There’s good indication that next year, the 5 1/9 (130mm) x 55 take on a robusto is destined to be the next release in the Gran Reserva series from Cuba’s Habanos S.A.

Over the last few weeks, a variety of people in the Cuban cigar industry have leaked information regarding the 2015 releases from Habanos S.A. While the list is neither final, nor official—past years would indicate that the list is likely to be a pretty good indication of what’s coming.

A list from the La Casa del Habanos of Knokke, Belgium provided one of the most detailed breakdown of what to expect next year.
