Hirochi Robaina, grandson of the Legendary Alejandro Robaina dubbed the “Godfather of Cuban tobacco “ who was born in Alquízar in La Habana Province of Cuba but he grew up and lived most of his life in the renowned tobacco-growing Vuelta Abajo district of Pinar del Río Province where his family had been growing tobacco since 1845. 

Alejandro took over the operations of the plantation after the death of his father Maruto Robaina. The tobacco leaves from Robaina’s plantations are often considered among the best in the world and have been used by high quality cigars brands such as Cohiba and Hoyo de Monterrey. Before he passed away Alejandro left a hand written note saying:
Hirochi, 
You are my hope.
You can’t fail me.
-Your Grandfather.

A hope that Hirochi since vowed to maintain alive by continuing his grandfathers legacy. Expanding his horizons, Hirochi now unveils a unique blend from Nicaragua named HR a full bodied cigar rich in flavor and an exquisite aroma that will surely please your palate.
