La Familia Robaina Ilegal cigars are produced and blended by Cuban-born master Hirochi Robaina in the old-world tradition passed down from his famous grandfather Alejandro Robaina the legendary Cuban tobacco farmer. Alejandro was the man responsible for some of the best and most notable blends to ever come from Cuba. Ilegal is the Spanish spelling for Illegal, and the cigars are named as such because Hirochi deemed them as so darn good, they should be Ilegal.” Ilegal takes a unique approach, as it consists of three different blends all within one line of handmade premium cigars. This includes an Ecuadorian Habano-wrapped blend, that’s medium bodied in strength, a Connecticut Shade-wrapped variety that’s mellow in strength, and a Mexican San Andrés-wrapped varietal that was made with medium bodied smokers in mind. Each of the three blends have been rolled at Omar González-Alemán’s La Corona factory in Estelí Nicaragua in a 5.50 x 54 Robusto, 6 x 50 Toro, and a 6 x 60 Gordo. Whichever blend and strength profile that you choose, you can count on the distinctively rich “Cubanesque” flavors that have made Robaina one of top names in handmade premium cigars for over a century!
