The Petit Robusto has proved to be a very popular size since the launch of the Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robusto in 2004 (4” (102mm) x 50 Ring gauge). Since then only one more brand has been awarded this vitola (Romeo y Julieta Petit Churchill) and they remain the only two currently available in the standard Habanos portfolio.
The Seleccion Petit Robustos gift box offers a unique opportunity to enjoy this size in other leading Habanos marques; Cohiba, Montecristo, Partagas, and H.Upmann, with the current Romeo y Julieta completing the set of five brands.
Each “book style” box contains ten cigars (two from each brand) with strips of cedar with magnets in each end securing the cigars in place.
About this Cigar: We really like this substantial cigar, rounded rather than rustic. Leather with a bittersweet, peppery background in a rich smoke. The power of the stick progresses without being interrupted until the finale. As you can gather this cigar is only for the expert smoker. This is a classic made for classic smokers.
