Cohiba Robusto - The Ultimate cigar

When you think of Cuban Cigars, most likely the word Cohiba comes to mind. After all, it is the Cuban name brand with the most allure. When you are smoking a Cohiba, you are smoking the ultimate Cuban cigar. One of the most popular Cohibas is the Cohiba Robusto. Robusto is the name use to refer to the size of the Cuban cigar. A Robusto size is about 4 7/8 inches in length and has a fairly thick ring gauge of 50.

The brand Cohiba is so unique and has such a mystique around it because it was meant to be very exclusive. It was part of Fidel Castro’s secret Cuban tobacco blend that only Fidel and a very few selected diplomats had the pleasure of enjoying. It was only in recent years that the Cohiba was made public. Besides that, the tobacco leaves used in creating the ‘Cohiba’ blend are taken from pre-selected and highly guarded farms of Habanos.

The leaves also go through a further fermentation or aging process so you can have an even greater experience. The Cohiba’s are not produced in such high quantities as the Montecristo or Romeo Y Julieta cigars, making them even more special. Also known as the flagship brand of all Cuban cigars (in fact, you could say it is the most recognized brand of cigars in all the world).

The Cohiba Robusto has a thick, easy draw which produces a lot of smoke. The flavor overall has a dark chocolate base, which supports more subtle flavors like cinnamon, pepper and almonds. It is a meaty smoke that requires the smoker to sit back, relax and let himself be consumed by the rich aromas. The Cohiba Robusto is nothing short of a masterpiece.
