    While doing a teaching stint for Bilkent International School in Ankara, Turkey a couple of years back, I discovered that Ankara is not a great place to spend your weekends. So when Lufthansa started offering return flights to Munich, Germany for 99 Turkish Lira, I was all over it. God bless global economic recession!

    In Germany I discovered this brand of cigars I had never before heard of. I bought a sampler pack of every Robusto in the Belmore range. And there was one very clear winner: the Cameroon Selection Robusto. Strong yet sweet, spicy yet not so overpowering as to mask a multitude of other flavours, this cigar is really something. If you are familiar with the Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story, which similarly has a Cameroon wrapper and is very very good, then just imagine what a fatter, easier drawing and longer lasting stick will do for you.

    Now living in Tokyo Japan, I can buy Cubans off the Internet at great prices. But, this cheap smoke is as good as any mainstream Cuban. Yes, really! I just can’t find anyone out there who stocks the Belmore range and is willing to ship them internationally. Language becomes a problem too, for any European based online retailer. If you’re lucky enough to live in the U.S.A., you can get them at Camino Viejo Tabacos. If anyone out there knows how to get these shipped internationally, please share the knowledge.

    Pictured above is the Torpedo at 50 x 6. The Robusto is shorter at 50 x 5. There are two smaller Torpedoes in the range and a Churchill at 48 x 7.

    Thumbs Up!

      Good idea – we`d list them as well in our shop i think 😉

      I finally got around to doing my homework on the Belmore Cameroon Selection cigars and where to get them. The prices in the USA are really good! Camino Viejo and BVcigars have them online but will only ship within the USA.

      For international orders, I have found three online dealers all based in Germany. The sites are ‘bilingual’ -a click of the mouse quickly switches everything to English. Very slick. Unfortunately, their prices suck!!! Must be something to do with taxes. Anyway, here they are FYI.
