Regius Robusto

Guy at my local B&M talked me into picking these up. I have not tried it yet but will probably get it in this weekend. Has anyone else heard of these?

He said that they were extremely creamy so I'm excited bc the price point wasn't that bad either!

    Sounds pretty tasty, let us know your experience. I've seen several "previously available in europe only" cigars recently that are just now being released in the US. I get that they have to blend to compete with cubans there, but a good cigar is a good cigar so we'll see how they all are soon.

    DUDE...how much? PM me please...I'd like you to pick some up for me. Black band and white band if they have them... Let's just say I had one, and they are amazing. The owner Akhil is a good dude, talked to him the other day, but they are B&M only. I'll trade, PP, whatever... The black band is a Plasencia Nica puro, the white band a MATASA DC puro by Quesada. Akhil blended these for the Euro palate so I LOVED the one I had, which was the black band.

    These guys compete very well with Habanos in Europe, so much so they do not need the US. Trust me when I say it is on par with Habanos easily. For the money, it is a great cigar.

    Curt, I'll see what I can do, the local B&m only had one open box but the parent company is where I may be meeting Taylor tomorrow. I'm sure they'll have them. I let you know!

    Yeah that Petronius Arbiter who they mention on their site is an excellent read too. Fascinating slice of life who I highly recommend.

    Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts funny outfits and humorless preachers thundering doom. The Deity is Safety; Satan is a Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.

    Shoot there is a smoke shop about 30 mins from my house that is listed on their site as a dealer. Sounds like I may have to make a trip this week...Will let everyone know what i find.

    I Have a shop about 10 min from work that carries these. Just picked up a couple today. Anyone interested, let me know too.

    I like a few if you could pick some up for me please. Thanks, Chuck

    Bad news guys. I was planning on buying a box and then divying them up between those that have asked for them. Unfortunately, the place that I met Taylor last night was supposed to have them, but was out. So now I am going back to my local place to see if he can order me a box. If so, then I'll let you all know! Sorry for the tease!

    Well, looks like Fedex it is then! LOL, no there is a black label and a White label. Was curious which you got?
  • Chuck_NChuck_N Posts: 1,091 ✭✭✭
    I got the black label. Damn FedEx!!
  • mmccartneydcmmccartneydc Posts: 3,407 ✭✭✭
    Chuck N:

    LOL, little history about me. When I feel I need to send someone a package, I just put a ziploc in my humi with their name on it. If there's no hurry, then I just pay attention and put a stick in their bag from time to time. When its full, its off to the PO or Fedex in your case. So as of now, your bag has one stick in it!

    I also do this from time to time. Helps me remember what people I'm looking to bomb are looking for. Otherwise, When the time come I have no idea what to send them.
