H. Upmann Royal Robusto


Here’s a release that should attract some of our frequent international travelers or those living overseas. Habanos S.A. has decided to show a little love to its over 140 La Casa del Habano stores around the world by giving them the opportunity to offer the H. Upmann Royal Robusto.

The exclusive release showcases one of Habanos S.A.’s most historic brands that has built a strong reputation across the globe since the 1800’s. Elegance and prestige are two words that fit H. Upmann to a T, and the Royal Robusto supplies such an aura with its premium blend of tobaccos. Only the best leaves taken from Vuelta Abajo zone in Cuba’s fertile Pinar del Rio region were used to create the Royal Robusto. The end result is a cigar with light to medium flavor and a pleasant aroma. The size chosen for the Royal Robusto (135mm length x 52 ring gauge) is said to be one of the favorite formats of Habanos smokers as well. To ensure quality construction, production of the cigars was limited to the factory’s most skillful rollers.

The international sale of the Royal Robusto obviously makes it a tough buy for smokers in the United States. It’s made even tougher, however, by the fact that Habanos S.A. has limited the cigar’s production to just 5,000 boxes of 10.

Xikar HC Series Habano Colorado Salomon Limitado


When you hear the name Xikar, you may immediately start to think of cigar accessories. While Xikar is certainly a well known name in that regard, the company has also graced the industry with some cigars of its own. One of Xikar’s lines is the HC Series Habano Colorado, and it’s about to get a new addition in the form of the Salomon Limitado.

Set to debut in select stores in November, the Habano Colorado Salomon Limitado comes in a Figurado shape that measures 7 x 58. The shape not only looks good, but is also said to deliver medium to full-bodied strength with notes of sweetness and chocolate. The cigar’s filler is a blend of tobaccos from Nicaragua’s Jalapa Valley, Costa Rica, and Honduras. The binder is from Esteli, Nicaragua. Topping off the composition is a Habano Colorado wrapper also from the Jalapa Valley.

The Salomon Limitado lives up to its name as only 1,000 boxes of 10 will be produced. Expect to pay around $10 per single. If the supply runs out before you are able to sample a Salomon, there are other sizes in the HC Series Habano Colorado line that you can try, such as the 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 54 Belicoso, 6 x 60 Grande, 6 ½ x 52 Toro, and 7 x 48 Churchill. Their prices are a bit more wallet-friendly than the Salomon and range from $6.50 to $8 per single. The line has received some high ratings in the past, so if you are tentative about taking the plunge, don’t be.
