Size : 141 x 50
Ring : 50
Hand-Made
Price : ~$25 each
More info about purchasing Vegas Robaina cigars...

Vegas Robaina was created and first introduced on the market in 1997.
The Robaina family is settled in one of the best plantation of the country, Cuchillas de Barbacoa (San Luis – Vuelta Abajo). The family history begun in 1845, as printed on every single band of the brand. Their reputation for producing the best wrapper leaves is mainly due to Don Alejandro Robaina. He was considered as the best producer until he tragically passed away in 2010.
The Vegas Robaina Maestro is the first regional edition to be made for the Spanish market. I have purchased it from Sautters shop in London. It is also the first regional edition made with a Vegas Robaina’s blend.
Released in 2007, only 2000 boxes of 10 were produced at the time.

Cigar Review – El Rey Del Mundo Lonsdale (Vintage 2000)

Overall Quality : ★★★★☆☆

El Rey Del Mundo , translated the king of the world, was created in 1882 with a very modest vision. Since then, the marca has produced some of the finest habanos on the market.
Easily recognisable by its creamy texture, El Rey Del Mundo tends to develop very elegant blend with a massive ageing potential.
As stated on Instagram (don't forget to follow Cigar Inspector on the social medias), I was craving for an aged El Rey Del Mundo. This one isn't very old, but I believe after 17 years one can mention it is an aged cigar! Should I mention the incredible price? €14 from La Casa Del Habanos Knokke!!!

Cigar Review – Vegas Robaina Unicos

Vegas Robaina Unicos is to me the perfect choice for every Montecristo No.2 lovers interesting to discover new cigars.
Vegas Robaina was created in 1997 after the famous Robaina family known for growing the finest wrapper in the San Luis area in Pinar del Region, in Cuba. At the origin of the creation of the Marca, Don Alejandro, the old man and true legend in the world of cigar was looking after the family plantation. This year Vegas robin celebrates its 20th anniversary and I am happy to share a review of one of the most interesting piramides vitola on the market ( to my opinion).

Cohiba Talisman EL 2017 – Launch Evening

There are many new exciting releases this year. The new Cohiba 2017 limited edition, called Talisman is one of them. This big size cigar (154 X 54) may become another big collector items.

Like every year, Habanos S.A. will host a launch evening to promote the new Limited edition cigars. Last year the Romeo y Julieta Capuletos was presented first in the Italian city of Verona, organised by the country's exclusive distributor Diademas S.P.A.
A very limited number of guests including Habanos Specialists, representatives of Smoking Clubs, Habanos Exclusive Distributors from other countries, media and influencers are usually part of that special event.

This year the Cohiba Talisman will most probably be launched on the land of Hunters and Frankau. Exclusive distributor for the United Kingdom. If the city of London is almost confirmed to be presenting the new gold and black double banded cigar, the date is a total mystery. I would guess not before October or November...

Let's see if the inspector was right or wrong...

Happy Smokes!

Here the humblest of all Habanos cigars, in many European cigar shops at a wonderfully low price, but in fact a consistent good smoke giving extraordinary value for money. José L. Piedra is one of the globally best-selling of all Cuban cigar brands, thanks to the price point but also because smokers often find, 'Hey, José, you are ok!'
