Cigar aficionados have long appreciated the artistry and craftsmanship that go into creating these fine indulgences. Among the most cherished cigar shapes is the Robusto, a size that has captured the hearts of enthusiasts worldwide. In this guide, we will delve into what makes a Robusto cigar so special, how it compares to its counterpart, the Toro, and explore the offerings of La Aurora.
A Robusto cigar is a specific type of cigar known for its dimensions, typically measuring 4 ¾ - 5 ½ inches in length with a ring gauge of 48 to 52. For our Robusto cigars, the size is approximately 5 inches in length with a ring gauge of 50. This size is widely favored among cigar enthusiasts due to its balanced combination of flavor and strength.
Derived from the Spanish term signifying "strong," Robusto cigars are characterized by a higher proportion of filler compared to the wrapper. This composition lends them a robust flavor and enhanced strength, a result of their tightly packed construction featuring some of the finest tobaccos globally renowned for their rich taste.
One of the distinctive features of a Robusto cigar is its ability to produce a generous amount of smoke. This characteristic plays a vital role in the overall cigar appreciation. Additionally, a Robusto cigar offers an extended burn time, typically said to be lasting anywhere around 30-60 minutes, depending on the brand. Our Robusto cigars last for up to 60 mins. This stands in contrast to smaller cigars like Coronas, providing a more leisurely smoking experience for those with less time.
The choice between a Robusto and a Toro can be a nuanced decision. Both share similarities, yet each offers its own unique experience.
When it comes to cigars, size matters. Toro cigars are recognized for their larger dimensions, usually spanning from 5 ⅝ to 6 inches in length, with a ring gauge typically around 46. However, some Toros can extend up to 6 1/2 inches and boast a ring gauge as wide as 54, which can vary based on the brand and country of origin. In contrast, Robusto cigars are known for their more condensed size, typically ranging from 4 ¾ to 5 ½ inches in length, with a ring gauge falling between 48 and 52.
While both cigars share a similar shape, with a cylindrical body and rounded cap, the Toro distinguishes itself by being slightly longer than the Robusto. This subtle difference can affect the overall feel and handling of the cigar.
In terms of flavor, Toro cigars offer a balanced flavor profile that develops gradually due to their larger size. In contrast, Robusto cigars, being smaller, provide a concentrated and robust flavor right from the start.
