Gaius Petronius Arbiter (AD27) was a Roman writer and courtier for Emperor Nero who devoted himself to a life of pleasure. Yet far from being an ordinary, vulgar profligate, he became known as an accomplished voluptuary. Showing capacity for outrageous indulgence, he was looked upon by Nero to be the absolute authority on questions of taste (arbiter elegantiae).
This little known but rapidly rising brand presents an unrivaled smoking experience through stringent quality standards, genuine enthusiasm and an unwavering dedication to the craft of producing premium hand-rolled cigars. Five generations of Cuban tobacco heritage and experience combined with what is widely recognized as one of the best organized, well equipped and beautiful cigar factories in the world exemplifies Nicaraguan dedication to producing superb and reliable hand-made cigars, to rival those made anywhere in the world.
Using all Nicaraguan tobacco this line seems to taste more like a Cuban than a Nicaraguan. Still fairly new to the U.S. market these amazing cigars already have a 91 rating from Cigar Aficionado and a 95 from Cigar Journal saying:"The Robusto in a pretty milk coffee brown wrapper starts with abundant wood aromas underlaid by a copious delicate sweetness. Coffee notes underscore its masculine, aroma and balanced character. Become more intense during the smoke; medium to full body."
