El Rey del Mundo Choix Supreme
Ring Gauge: 48
A City Cigar favorite due to its honey-tangy flavours and good value price, the Choix Supreme certainly belongs in the ‘underrated’ category for Cuban cigars. And this is ironic, considering that by the mid-20th century, Rey del Mundo was the most expensive – and considered the most prestigious – Cuban cigar brand in the world. This is a great choice for Cuban cigar connoisseurs partial to similarly mild to medium strength brands like Hoyo de Monterrey and Romeo Y Julieta. The Choix Supreme is the ‘robusto’ size within the brand.
Joya de Nicaragua Robusto Grande
Ring Gauge: 52
Antaño in Spanish means “yesteryear”, a name that pays tribute to the Joya de Nicaragua cigars of the 70’s when the brand was among the most popular in the United States. This full-bodied cigar is made totally by hand with 100% Nicaraguan tobacco, including a shiny Criollo wrapper that adds significantly to its rich flavour and aroma. The Robusto Grande offers an intriguing mix of raisin, cherry, cocoa and spicy notes that makes for a very satisfying smoke.
