First launched over a century ago to great acclaim as one of the best cigar bargains ever, the El Baton Robusto has been revived and reinvented as a modern Nicaraguan Puro. Long gone are the days when a nickel could buy the original Julius Caesar Newman creation, but both his and this cigar’s legacy remain intact thanks to the family-owned company that still bears J.C.’s name. Now rolled in their legendary El Reloj factory in the heart of Ybor City in Tampa, Florida instead of Cleveland, Ohio, these full-bodied sticks are chock full of aged Nicaraguan tobaccos beneath a dark Sun Grown Sumatra wrapper so oily and sleek you can almost see your reflection.

Adorned with a classy band of blue and silver scripted with gold, the solid barrel of each El Baton Robusto vitola is a magnificent example of the quality of cigar being produced at Tampa’s last cigar factory: smooth and shiny, minimally veined, reeking of the aroma of fresh-cut hay. The taste of cedar is abundant in the cold draw, the thick filler offering just the right amount of resistance. After lighting, the cigar exudes a significant leather component, a bit of black pepper, and some oak. Midway, earthy cocoa becomes evident but watch out as the ash is somewhat flaky and prone to fall if over an inch long. The woodiness increases along with the strength towards the end, with a drop of cane-syrup sweetness for balance.

With such a historic pedigree plus being the recipient of a slew of rave reviews, including a well-deserved 93 rating, you might think the 5” X 54 El Baton Robusto a pricey and rare indulgence. Not so, dear aficionado, for while they do indeed cost more than five cents, you can probably scrape up enough from the cushions of your couch to buy more than a handful. For even more enjoyment, hold an American-made-cigar smoke-off against the Herrera Esteli Miami.
