Where to Smoke

Cigars and Leisure:

The Robusto Room - Located 15 minutes south of downtown Denver, The Robusto Room is the definition of the post-modern cigar bar. A hybrid of a cocktail lounge, nightclub, and cigar bar, The Robusto Room has the largest selection of premium cigars in the Rocky Mountains. 

This isn’t your grandfather’s cigar lounge. Bustling with top-tier DJs, killer craft cocktails and spirits, and over 700 boxes of cigars in the attached cigar shop, Stogies & Bogeys, this is where you’ll want to party well into the morning hours.

Ice Age

FSR Magazine featuring The Robusto Room for our innovative Fire & Rye cocktail.

...There was a time when chipped ice was reserved for highbrow balls or haughty Hollywood sets featuring debutantes, mobsters, or the Victorian aristocracy. Now the craft cocktail movement and its populist overtones have brought the elevation of cocktail ice to a fever pitch. Custom, artisanal ice is an enormous trend, and beverage directors and mixologists are taking advantage of this latest element to add verve to their cocktail programs in more and more unique ways...

 

...Finally, mixologists have also discovered ways of smoking ice, whether it’s by melting it in a smoker and refreezing it, the way Laurelhurt Market in Portland, Oregon, does for the shards in its Smoke Signals cocktails, or by blowing smoke into the glass first so that it interacts with the ice. At the Robusto Room, an “elevated” cigar bar in Denver, the bartenders use a handheld food smoker called The Smoking Gun to tent the Mason jar in which they pour the Fire & Rye cocktail...

Colorado Avid Golfer:

Although you could burn through $35,000 or more on a box of Gurkha HMRs, a number of less pricey smokes remain coveted. According to Peter Roth, owner of the Robusto Room in Lone Tree, these include the special-edition Arturo Fuente Destino al Siglo, ($17 per cigar); the delectable Cubanacan HR Sublime ($20); the under-the-radar J. Fuego Americana ($12); the boutique, uniquely packaged LEAF by Oscar ($10); and the decadent, silky San Cristobal Revelation ($12).

The Robusto Life: Cuban Cigars Coming Stateside?

The Robusto Life: Cuban Cigars Coming Stateside?

Our very own Peter Roth wrote his first column at The Modern Gladiator. It sheds some light on the future of Cuban cigars in the United States and talks through some of the challenges. Here's a bit of the article:

A bipartisan group of senators recently introduced legislation to permanently lift all restrictions on American travel to Cuba. Passage of this bill would benefit both Cubans and Americans, and there’s virtually no opposition. With support coming from high powered politicos, the media (Bloomberg, The New York Times, and others), and a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll indicating rapidly growing support numbers, it’s only a matter of time before the embargoes and travel restrictions are lifted. “But what does that mean for the illustrious Cuban cigar?”

Head over to The Modern Gladiator to read the rest...

This one was just the first but you will be able to see all of Peter's articles here.

2 of the rarest bourbons just released at The Robusto Room

We are very proud to present Old Blowhard 26 year bourbon and Barterhouse 20 year bourbon from Orphan Barrel Distillery. Orphan Barrel takes pride in unearthing lost barrels of rare and succulent bourbons that have long been forgotten in the back of rick houses and distillery warehouses.

Both of these ultra rare bourbons were discovered in barrels that had been hidden away and forgotten long ago. Therefore, there is an extremely small production of both, with The Old Blowhard being the rarer of the two. These will be both be completely out of existence very shortly.

old-blowhard-barterhouse-orphan-barrel-bourbon-whiskey-cigar-bar-shops.jpg

OLD BLOWHARD is a 26 year old bourbon that is bold and full of big flavors. It is an 86% corn mash Kentucky Straight Bourbon of 90.7 proof. The taste is rich and lush with hints of honey and smoke and a dry soft finish of orange peel. 

BARTERHOUSE is a 20 year old bourbon also of 86% corn mash. It has flavors of soft spice and butter cream with a clean finish of molasses and light spice. 

Both of these rare bottles stock was made at the old Bernheim distillery and was discovered in the Stitzel-Weller warehouse in Louisville, Kentucky. 

Only a small amount of both of these rare bourbons is available and will only be available one time. The Robusto Room is one of only two accounts in all of Colorado to have this amazing specimen and we only could secure 6 bottles of each. So once they are sold it is gone for good!

Single Oak Project Bourbon is here!

Single Oak Project Bourbon is here!

We are very pleased to announce that we are receiving the extremely rare, Single Oak Project Bourbon, made by Buffalo Trace on Friday 2/28/14. There are only 192 barrels being made. The first barrel was gone before these even hit the market (presumably to their friends and family). However we are receiving an entire case of the Single Oak Project from the 2nd barrel! This is the most coveted barrel made since the first one was never even released for sale!

single-oak-project-buffalo-trace-bourbon-whiskey.jpg

Buffalo Trace is known for their incredibly distinguished portfolio that includes such luminaries as Pappy Van Winkle bourbon (perhaps the rarest of all bourbons). However, The Single Oak Project is Buffalo Trace's most unique and inventive undertaking yet. The project began with 96 specifically selected American Oak trees that varied by their growth location and their age. Each tree was then cut into two distinct parts - top portion and bottom portion. This gave way to 192 distinctive pieces of tree. A single barrel meant for aging whiskey was produced from each of these 192 pieces. Each of these barrels was then charred differently to produce 192 unique flavors. 

These single oak barrels were then filled with different whiskey variations at various entry proofs and aged in a multitude of varying aging styles. This experiment allows whiskey connoisseurs to directly compare the taste differentials created by these 7 different variables. As a result there are 192 variations of these unique bourbons and only 192 barrels produced.

Come taste barrel 2! The very first barrel available to general public. The Robusto Room will likely be the only establishment in the state of Colorado to have bottles from the 2nd barrel.
