BACKGROUND: The cigar named “HR by Hirochi Robaina,” was brought forth by a collaborative effort between Robaina and Omar Gonzalez Alemán the master blender at Cubanacan Cigars in Nicaragua. González was a friend to the Robaina family, including both Hirochi and his grandfather, the late Don Alejandro. According to Robaina, “This [new cigar] is very close to a Cuban cigar. I’m very happy.”

Today, I will be featuring the 6-inch by 52 ring gauge Hr Habano Maduro Toro.
