What is a Double Robusto cigar?
Updated: Jan 25
Double Robusto is one of the favorite cigar sizes amongst cigar smokers internationally. Do you know the difference between a robusto and a double robusto cigar? We propose you that we begin by learning about Robustos.
What is a Robusto
Robusto is the word in Spanish for STRONG. These cigars are conceived to have more filler than wrappers. Robusto cigars tend to have more body and strength as they are rolled tightly with some of the best-tasting tobaccos.
Difference between Robustos and Double Robustos
Novice smokers tend to think double robustos are twice the size of a robusto, but that’s not the case. While Robustos Traditionally are sized around 5 inches long by a 50-ring gauge. Double robustos have a thicker ring gauge and are around just half an inch longer.
