Star Cigar is a brand of premium cigars and accessories. Its most popular blend is S.O.B. Robusto, which is manufactured in the Dominican Republic and distributed worldwide. Fran “Shon” Shatone Brooks invented the product and introduced it to the United States in May 2013.[1] Robusto cigars are a class of cigars created from a mixture of Dominican tobacco leaves, and finished with a round cap. Its six other blends are the churchill, corona, double corona, panatela, toro and torpedo.

Smoke Magazine Review and Hard Rock Casino Debut[edit]

In March 2014, less than a year after it was introduced to consumers, S.O.B. Robusto was featured in Smoke Magazine, a quarterly lifestyle publication for cigar enthusiasts. The cigar received ratings between 87 and 95 on a 100-point rating scale, which represent very good to excellent.[2]

In 2014 Brooks secured an agreement with Hard Rock to retail the cigars in the five-star Hard Rock Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.[3]
