“Vitola”, which roughly translates as “cigar band”, is a widely-used term within the cigar industry, and is used to describe the wide array of cigar shapes and sizes available today. One such size is the Robusto cigar, which has experienced soaring popularity in recent years. Boasting a short length and a thick ring gauge, Robusto cigars are ideal for those who like a full-bodied flavour in a short smoking time. They’re equally as superb to enjoy as either an after-dinner treat, or as your primary choice of cigar.

The James J. Fox Vitola Robusto Collection

James J. Fox currently stocks a large collection of Robusto cigars by well-renowned cigar producers from around the world, such as Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Smoking times for the Robusto collection vary greatly, between twenty to sixty minutes, and these cigars are also available in a variety of strengths and sizes.

For a mild strength that yields an impressively underrated medium-bodied flavour profile, consider the Romeo Y Julieta Short Churchill. Known for its prolonged smoking time of thirty to forty minutes, as well as its captivating blend of spice, cedar and earth, with a brown toast aftertaste, this Cuban cigar is a fantastic choice for the novice cigar smoker.

If you are looking for a Robusto cigar that guarantees to deliver a higher strength, you may be interested in purchasing the Bolívar Royal Coronas Tubos cigar. This impressive Robusto has a smoking time of thirty to forty minutes, is 4 ⅞ inches in length and possesses a thick ring gauge of 50. Expect a full-bodied and smooth smoking experience that delivers notes of heavy leather and earthiness, along with undertones of minerality and cedar that are easily identifiable from start to finish.
