FrontRunners: Select Smoke

<< Back to Robb Report, September 2006

    Zino Platinum fans no longer need to pack a travel humidor for every trip. The Chubby—beloved for its sophisticated flavor, unusual perfecto shape, and whimsical name—is now available sheathed in a sturdy metal tube. Toss the Chubby Especial Tubo inside a suitcase or glove compartment, and upon arrival you will find it in perfect condition to deliver the smooth, subtly spicy flavor of its Dominican and Peruvian tobaccos. Years of smoking experience are not necessary to appreciate this cigar’s elegant blend, and outstanding quality control ensures a cool, consistent smoke through the entire stick.

    ($102 for a package of three)
