Even cigar lovers on a shoestring deserve to splurge a bit from time to time, and for the flavor you'll get from CAO's CX2 Rob cigars, the price is still an incredible bargain. The CX2 stands for Cameroon times two, and indicates the very rare Grade 1 African Cameroon binder and wrapper leaves that top this cigar off.

Combined with a finely blended selection of Colombian and Nicaraguan long filler tobaccos, the upscale wrappers bring out intense earthy and woody flavors punctuated by a distinct sweetness that comes through in the aroma of its creamy smoke as well. A smooth, truly indulgent smoke, the CX2 Rob is one of CAO's finest offerings with a price that won't leave you reeling.

Maroma Robusto

Few cigars can deliver the fine features and flavors of Nestor Plasencia's incredible Maroma Robustos. Though they offer an amazingly low price, Maroma Robustos don't skimp on flavor or construction. An ideal cigar for an early in the day smoke, the distinct and earthy notes of cedar and cocoa produced by this deft blend go great with the morning cup of joe.

Filled with a Cuban Sandwich tobacco blend hailing from Nicaragua and Honduras, the cigar is finished with a light brown Connecticut wrapper to produce a delicious aroma and a smooth smoke. A popular favorite that could easily become one of your standbys, Maroma Robustos are well worth their modest cost.

Rafael Gonzalez Robusto Natural

Finally, one more top shelf offering from Rafael Gonzalez with a decidedly bottom shelf price, the Robusto Natural is a Honduran counterpart to a Cuban favorite. An enticing product, these medium bodied cigars offer plenty of flavor, with hints of nuttiness and a smooth, clean finish.

Robusto Naturals glean their delicious aroma and creamy smoke from a well balanced blend of Nicaraguan, Honduran and Dominican filler tobaccos. A virtually seamless shade grown Connecticut wrapper and Connecticut broadleaf binder provide an interesting counterpoint with delicate earthy notes. A great cigar for a Friday afternoon, Rafael Gonzalez Robusto Naturals are a terrific value.

The best way to expand your knowledge about great cigars is by sampling new varieties and brands every so often. Always choose a five pack or even a single cigar before dropping a wad of cash on what seems to be a good deal for a whole box. In a little while, you'll build a collection that will inspire envy in even the most seasoned cigar aficionados.

Welcome Macanudo2.

When i saw your topic, I was kind of expecting a personal opinion or tasting notes of a Rocky Patel cigar.
I bought a box of Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 last month, and shared a few with some friends during a small rum tasting.
Everybody liked the cigar for it's flavor and smoothness. it had a perfect draw and burn. Real value for Money.

Unfortunately, after reading your post, the only RP I see is in the shop-link on the bottom.
It's more likely to be an introduction of some cigars, or an advertisement.
Maybe you can be more clear in the title next time?

Some pictures of what we were tasting that evening, sorry for the bad quality but it was taken with my phone.

Looks like a great tasting, thanks for the pics... btw, what'd you think of the Seven Tiki? Does the spicing taste artificial or nature's own? Vanilla?
