Back in November I attended the famous Partagas festival in Havana, Cuba along with the Toronto contingent. This was my first time going and I must say I am now hooked. After a few days of hunting in every cigar store in town, I was invited by the good people at the Montreal branch of the Casa Del Habanos to a pre-launch tasting of this year’s Edicion Regional Canada, the Vegas Robaina Aniversario XV Exclusivo Canada. Vegas Robaina is not a marca I particularly appreciate but I am more than ready to have my mind changed.

I have always been a fan of the Vegas Robaina line of cigars. I remember years ago falling in love with the Famosos and buying enough to consider it my daily cigar. Of course, times have changed and although I still smoke the Famosos, they aren’t my daily go to cigar anymore but I always keep a few in my well-stocked humidor when I want a reliable, medium-bodied cigar with a pleasing, consistent flavour.

When it was announced in 2009 that Habanos SA was releasing a special Canadian Regional Edition, the Petit Robaina, I had to have a box. I managed to purchase a box in early 2010 for the cost of $230.00 here at a duty free supplier in Canada. That worked out to be $9.20 per cigar. Today, the cigars, if still found, are selling for $366 for a box of 25 from the same duty free supplier ($14.00 for singles). I have searched for these and have found them to be selling for as high as $27.00 per cigar. Remember, these are limited edition cigars with a small production run exclusively for Canadian Habanos S.A. vendors.

I remember smoking one as soon as I got it and it was admittedly young and still had some ammonia present so I did the difficult thing to do and that was put the box away in my humidor and wait. Recently, with these cigars having aged over 3 years, it was time to break them open and start smoking them. I’ve had 7 of them now over the past 2 months so I have been able to gain a pretty good feel for their profile and have made many notes about their construction and consistency.

We've got a guest cigar review from Jdawg today. Enjoy!

The Vegas Robaina Petit Robaina is a regional edition for Canada released in 2009. I have become more fascinated with regionals as of late. This particular cigar with its stubby size and stout ring gauge appealed to me when I first saw it. I have smoked a couple other Canadian regionals recently and found them not to my tastes, so I was hoping for something more appealing here.

Vegas Robaina Maestros is the first regional edition for Spain, released in 2007 and distributed by Altadis SA. It is slightly longer than your regular robusto, at 5.6 x 50. This cigar was my main target when I visited the cigar shops in Madrid. I found it without much trouble at approximately $13 each. I smoked one straight away but it was almost plugged. The remaining 2 cigars for this review have been resting 2 weeks in the humidor.

It’s Sunday, the sun is out and the weatherman is telling me it's 68 degrees outside and I’m definitely feeling it. My lady and I decide to hit up Georgetown, which is one of my favorite places to go and grab some food and just enjoy the day. Of course, I bring my cigars just in case. We find this nice little spot next to a small boat and a bench to sit and I pull out the Vegas Robaina 5th Anivesario.

The Vegas Robaina 5th Anivesario can only be found in a limited release humidor. The humidor comes with 100 cigars in 5 different vitolas. The vitolas are Lonsdales, Torpedos, Double Coronas, Coronas and Robustos, 20 of each. The limited amount of humidors is only 500 and each humidor runs around $1,800.

The Vegas Robaina Clasicos is from my experience the best cigar by this brand. It seldom has any flaws (unlike Unicos or Famosos) and the flavors are purely Cuban, incredibly complex and smooth. Kudos to Don Alejandro!

I have smoked quite a few of the Vegas Robaina Unicos and, although it's certainly a very good and interesting cigar, it lacks just a little something to become great.
