The company responsible for Cohiba Royale Robusto is General Cigar Co. Cohiba Royale is known as the brand’s fullest-bodied expression to join the Cohiba line. It is also recognized for achieving a milestone for the brand by being the first Honduras-crafted Cohiba line.
Cohiba Royale Robusto is not only full-bodied but it is also slow-burning. It is known to offer flavors of earth, cocoa, black pepper, cinnamon, and laced with a generous flavor of tobacco sweetness. Cohiba Royale is a symbol of elegance and luxury.
Sean Williams, the Cohiba brand ambassador, clearly described it, saying, “Cohiba Royale was created with the cigar connoisseur in mind, bringing to life the microclimates and fertile soils of the Caribbean and Central America in a way that is unique to the brand. All of the tobaccos that comprise Cohiba Royale are hand-selected and deeply aged, representing the best of the best tobacco growing regions in the world. The result is a cigar that is as bold as it is refined, befitting of the Cohiba name.”
Cohiba Royale Robusto starts with the beautiful wrapper from a Nicaraguan broadleaf which is grown in Jalapa Valley, which is known as one of the most prized tobacco-growing locations in the world. This is due to its moist climate, high elevation, and rich reddish-brown soil that gives life to this highly elegant tobacco which gives off a unique and flavorful aroma. It comes with a Piloto Cubano binder which in itself offers the complexity and the elegant style that suit the richness and distinction of the final product. It also includes filters that come from a combination of tobaccos that hail from popular regions like Estelí and Jamastrán. All these provide a strong flavor profile and a full-bodied smoking experience.

Gran Royale has an SRP of USD 23.99 per cigar, Robusto Royale is at USD 25.99 per cigar, and Toro Royale at USD 28.99 per cigar. The cigar line is available in 5-count and 10-count boxes.
