Vega Fina Robusto

Country of Origin:  Dominican Republic

Vitola:  Robusto
Length:  5 inches
Ring Gage:  50

Normally I enjoy a fuller bodied cigar but Vega Fina was just amazing!!! For me it is a perfect first smoke of the day and for some it can be their fantastic everyday smoke.   I was thoroughly impressed with this cigar.  It is an absolute hidden gem!! 

This cigar has a golden yellow wrapper and shows very good construction.  Something unusual about this cigar is that is has an Indonesian Binder.  But I think it suits this cigar well, all of the flavors are perfectly balanced to create one of the most flavorful cigars I’ve smoked.  

The draw on this cigar was excellent.  There was a nice even, slow burn with great looking ash.  This cigar is smooth, flavorful, and creamy.  Another thing I noticed is the smoke also had almost an aromatic quality to it.  (Maybe I was imagining it because I was so happy at finding a good inexpensive smoke!!)

This cigar is said to be one of the most popular non Cuban cigars in Europe, and since its release in the United States in 2007 it has done really well in a market geared more towards fuller bodied smokes.  Also as I just mentioned the price on these cigars are amazing!!! 

This cigar is definitely worth trying, even if you are like me and like a fuller bodied cigar.
