Club Alejo™ is dedicated to the late Alejandro Robaina and his life’s contribution to tobacco and the Cuban cigar. The most famous Cuban tobacco grower in history, Alejandro had his first cigar at age 10. His passion for tobacco along with his kindness and wisdom, earned him tremendous respect with guajiros and big city cigar enthusiasts alike from around the world. A gentle farmer, and more importantly, a good person, I am proud to have known him as are many others, and cannot think of a more appropriate and exclusive cigar club to belong to than a club dedicated to Alejandro Robaina. It is an honor.
- Marcus Daniel
Grandson of Alejandro Robaina, Hirochi, after working at his grandfather’s side for fourteen years is now at the helm of the most famous Cuban tobacco farm in the world. At his request, a club in his grandfather’s honor has now been formed.
