Cohiba-Robusto

 

 

Cohiba Robusto
Origin: Cuba
Strength: Medium-Full
Ring Gauge: 50
Length: 4⅞”

The ever-popular Cohiba brand has gained its reputation by using the best tobacco from the Vuelta Abajo region of Cuba as well as its use of an extra fermentation process. The Robusto is a classic size within the brand, tending towards earthy/cocoa notes and a spicy finish.


Tatuaje-Havana-VI-Nobles

 

 

Tatuaje Havana VI Nobles
Origin: Nicaraguan
Strength: Medium
Ring Gauge: 50
Length: 5″

Many cigar brands toil in obscurity for years before establishing a strong reputation and customer base. Not so with the Tatuaje brand, which was created in 2003 and instantly lavished with praise by Cigar Aficionado magazine. Their portfolio of medium to full-bodied cigars includes the Havana VI line, of which the ‘Nobles’ is a proper Robusto size (5” x 50). Tatuaje aims to mimic Cuba in their cigar blends – especially with regards to complexity in the tobacco – and the Havana VI Nobles hits the mark with flavours ranging from leather to spice to black cherry tartness.
