Vintage Cigars that are handmade for those that enjoy the real Cubans. Cuban Crafters Contraband Robusto is dark, rich and creamy. After smoking this vintage Robusto you will believe that it is a contraband cigar from Cuba, but we assure you that it just tastes that way and it's a handcrafted Puro entirely produced with extensively aged Cuban-seed Habano tobacco from Nicaragua. The premium wrapper is an Oscuro Cuban seed Habano leaf from the Jalapa Valley of Nicaragua. The binder is a shade-grown Cuban-seed Habano leaf, also from the Jalapa Valley. The opulent long-filler is a combination of extremely aged and flavorful Cuban-seed Habano from Esteli, Condega and the Jalapa Valley of Nicaragua. This is a true Puro, hand made the same old-fashioned way as the finest cigars from Cuba. Contraband is for the sophisticated cigar smoker who knows quality and expects it from every single cigar. This medium to full bodied work of art provides opulent notes of cream, chocolate and mild spices. Contraband Robusto is 5 inches long with a ring gauge of 50. 100 Cigars come in a cedar wood box. The large 100 cigar boxes are made for retail stores and open from the front to display the beautifully handmade cigars.
When we first created these vintage cigars with this savory blend of extensively aged tobaccos, we kept getting the same remark from all those who smoked the samples, "...is this a contraband cigar from Cuba?" While it took years to age the tobacco and blend it to perfection, we still did not have a name for them. Just about everyone who had smoked the samples kept calling and asking us for the "contraband" Cuban cigars. That convinced us to name this exquisite cigar CONTRABAND. Don't think that it was easy. Even our own trademark lawyer called us after smoking one to be reassured that these cigars were not in-fact contraband cigars from Cuba. Made with a special blend of aged Cuban-seed tobacco, Cuban Crafters' Contraband will also have you convinced. They come in boxes of 100 cigars and are party pleasers. We guarantee it with our full satisfaction money-back offer. Try one cigar from the box and if they do not become your favorite, send the rest back for a full refund. Since Contraband is made in small batches and in limited quantities, we may not always have them in stock.
MEDIUM to FULL BODIED. Exhilarating smooth and creamy taste with lots of heady, deep complex notes of chocolate, licorice, dry champagne and mild spices. Melodious yet zesty makes them a standout. They finish with a combination of pleasant cocoa and earthy undertones that will not let you put the cigar down. The aroma has a very pleasant earthy scent.
Subject :: Nice Surprise
I picked up a robusto for a nice price at a smoke shop near the George Washington Bridge on the NJ side. This was a nice size stick with a hefty feel, and I counted on it to accompany me back home to Suffolk County on Long Island. The cigar was a pleasant surprise - I went out on a limb lighting up a perceived strong stick on an empty stomach. The stick lit and smoked easily, and burned evenly with a white ash. The flavors were dark with some oak notes....I was awaiting the bite and the head spins, but they did not materialize. The cigar smoked down slowly, and seemed to mellow during the last two inches. Very enjoyable and tasty. -Frank
