With the creation of this innovative Gran Robusto, the renowned and popular cigar brand Griffins responds to the desire of modern aficionados to discover and enjoy a multi-faceted and well-rounded cigar experience. The new Griffins Gran Robusto is perfectly balanced and proves to be an ideal companion to follow a light meal.The Dominican filler tobaccos (harvested in the Cibao Valley) and a Peruvian binder with a beautiful Ecuadorian wrapper lend this cigar a mellow-to-medium strength. This new format is slightly longer and has a bigger ring gauge (RG 52) than a typical Robusto.When the cigar is cold, the wrapper leaves an enjoyable bitterness with flavors of dry earth and wood on the lips. As soon as the cigar is lit, its flavors will remind aficionados of green grass and wet wood. In the second and last third of the tasting experience the aromas get more and more complex. The unique composition of the Griffins Gran Robustos tobacco leaves provides this cigar with a harmonious blend. A sweet, not too heavy rum, or a light single malt whisky would pair perfectly with it.
