Leopold de Rothschild

The Rothschild vitola was named after Leopold de Rothschild, a wealthy English banker. In the late 19th century, Leopold had commissioned the famous Hoyo de Monterrey factory in Havana, Cuba to create a cigar that was packed in flavor but not long in length. Hoyo came back with a 4"1/2 * 52 ring gauge cigar. Soon this new vitola became so popular and associated with Rothschild that it was named after him. Today, the Rothschild is still made in its original size, but it also comes as a 5" * 50 ring, aka the robusto. The next time you're short on time but still want a great flavorful smoke, make like a deep-pocketed banker and light up a Rothschild (or robusto).
