New Arrivals from Hirochi Robaina | Boxes Ship FREE!
Inexpensive usually means low quality. However, when the grandson of a legendary cigar maker; Hirochi Robaina, a man who is rapidly working towards becoming a legend himself, crafts a new cigar, quality doesn't have to be sacrificed in order to provide an inexpensive product.
The H.R. Blue is a new maduro that proves that point. Made from the same blend as the original H.R. cigars, it is made with lower primings and wrapped in an Ecuadorian Habano Maduro wrapper. The result is that this stick has a strong, thick taste at a fraction of the cost of similar top blends.
Cigar connoisseurs will appreciate the cigar from the moment they draw it from the box. The thick cigar is luxuriously banded with the blue and silver label of the company and has a wonderful cocoa aroma that fills your nostrils before it is even lit. Once lit, the beauty of the H.R. Blue is that the flavor grows ever stronger with inch. Cocoa and pepper last throughout, while a variety of flavorful spices strengthen throughout the draw.
The H.R. Blue is an excellent morning or mid afternoon cigar. The upward momentum of the flavor is practically like an energy drink in a cigar.

The hefty build of the H.R. Claro makes it clear from the very start that this is a cigar designed for experienced smokers. The flavor isn't so powerful that newer smokers won't enjoy it, but few are likely to be able to finish a stick, simply due to its size. However, if you are like us, and never back down from the challenge of a great smoke, the H.R. Claro is likely to be one of your favorite cigars released in 2016.
Wrapped in a nearly veinless Ecuadorian Habano Claro wrapper, this mammoth both looks elegant and wonderfully smells of chocolate when pulled from the box. The initial draw is earthy with a strong taste of cedar that awakens your senses. As expected, the cigar quickly adds spice to the mix. What isn't expected is the striking herbal flavor of bell pepper. It is rather unique and easily defines the experience of smoking this stick. The cigar ends with a delicious creaminess that can best be described as dessert after a great meal.
The H.R. Claro is a mature cigar that is best smoked with mature company, both in terms of people and drinks. We recommend smoking it with other experienced smokers while drinking nicely aged scotch or bourbon.
