Bad cigar joke: What’s a pirate’s favorite smoke? The Vegas Arrr…

The “Arrr” actually stands for Robaina, Alejandro Robaina to be precise! The man was one of the most legendary tobacco farmers in all Cuba, hailing from the San Luis section of the legendary Vuelta Abajo region (basically the best location in the best region). In fact, around 30% of all wrapper leaf from Vuelta Abajo comes from Robaina’s farm! So as you can see, making pirate jokes about this man’s cigar is totally uncalled for! (apologies Mr. Robaina)

In 1997, the generous (read: overbearing) Habanos SA commemorated Alejandro with a cigar in his name. The cigars appropriately consist of Robaina’s tobaccos, making up a complex, medium-full-bodied profile that has held a consistent favor by enthusiasts since its introduction to the market.
