Robustos not named Ramon Allones, Cohiba, Partagas & Choix Supreme


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

In addition to RASS, Coro, SD4 and Choix Supreme (I have quite a lot of already) just wanted to get input from folks about Robustos/ Hermosos size cigars that you feel are good "everyday" smokes but can also be put down for a long winter's nap (ie. 10+ years).  I was looking at SLR Regios, Bolivar Royal Corona and R&J Ex.no.4. (or maybe another I've not mentioned)?

Thanks to all!

  • PL Picadores. Great price, great smoke.
  • PL Galanes look very promising too.
  • PSD4's can be a good everyday smoke, though letting them age pays off in the long run.
  • Quinteros Favoritos if you must have an everyday Robusto.  Hard to beat the price.  I have some older boxes, they certainly aren't getting worse. :D
  • RyJ Short Churchills fit the bill as great fresh/aged.

The previous CCW spreadsheet had cigars I don't really consider a 'robusto' so here is one that is a bit more narrowly focused on your 'true' robusto.

I currently smoke all but the Monte Open Master and the RyJ Short Churchills.  I don't think you can go wrong on any of the rest.  The JL Seleccion No. 2 is my favorite and smokes great at any age in my opinion.

Shortlist of three robusto / hermoso #4 for me: Cohiba, RyJ Ex#4, SLR Regios.

B-team: VR Famosos, Choix Supreme, Picadores.

The reason the D4 is not on here is I’m always drawn bigger (Lusi) or smaller (Short) in the Partagas line. And I’d always rather smoke Monte #2 or especiale #2 than a petit edmundo.

Bolivar RC and Juan Lopez Seleccion no. 2 are at the top my list that starts with RASS and PSD4.

While the Short de Punch is technically a petit robusto, it’s only about 4mm or something short of a full robusto, and I consider it a very good one.

10 years down? I just had a Regios that was a butt kicker. Evidently all of a sudden they're stuffing these with ligero. I can tell some flavors are muted. 10 years could be the sweet spot for these.

I have heard this from a few people recently but when I look up reviews most people call them mild-medium. If they are blending them strong I definitely will consider a box.
