In an attempt to create a blend similar to that of the original Royal Jamaica brand, I contacted John Oliva to see if he could secure real Jamaican long-filler tobaccos. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to find any, as very little leaf is grown there due to dreadful labor conditions. He did manage to get his hands on some excellent short-filler tobaccos though. And so, we introduced the Red Dot line.

Handcrafted with an outstanding blend of short-filler tobaccos (50% Jamaican and 50% Nicaraguan visos), a smooth binder, and your choice of either a handsome, brown Ecuador Habano wrapper or a dark Costa Rica-grown maduro, this is as close as we’re ever gonna get to duplicating those old-time Royal Jamaicans! These beauties offer a creamy, rich, mild-to-medium-bodied smoking experience.

Short Filler That Smokes Like A Long
The Toro is well built, almost hefty, with a smooth, consistent draw and a razor-sharp burn line. It feels good in your hand. The fine, almost white ash belongs to a well aged, long-filler smoke, not your typical short-filler stick. Lots of flavor with this blend. Finally, a short-filler cigar that holds its shape and does not become spongy when hot.
