The Rolls-Royce of cigar brands with a world renowned smooth style. A special third fermentation of the filler leaves in wooden barrels produces a smoother flavour than in other cigars.
Formally launched in 1968 after one of Fidel Castro's bodyguards allowed the leader to try his 'private supply'. During the first few years of 'commercial' production only a few thousand boxes were produced annually, reserved for the use of high government officials and frequently given away as diplomatic gifts. Launched as a premium cigar brand into markets outside of the USA in 1982. The Robusto size is particularly popular (with David, our resident puffer…!)
SIZE : Ring gauge of 50 and a length of 124mm (4⅞ inches), ergo 'Robusto'.
TIME : A smoke of between 40 and 45 minutes.
