De classico robusto bestaat uit 100% tabak uit Nicaragua. De sigaar is opgedekt met lang gefermenteerd dekblad uit Nicaragua. Corojo Oscuro. Dekblad afkomstig uit Cubaans zaad gegroeid in Nicaragua. Dit dekblad ligt soms wel 14 tot 18 maanden op fermentatie stapels. Die stapels worden in die lange periode regelmatig omgegooid daarbij wordt de tabak telkens aan gevocht. Door druk en vocht ondergaat de tabak een gecontroleerde broei met als resultaat een maduro –oscuro dekker. Master blenders Jose en Jaime Garcia zetten hun handtekening onder deze sigaar.
