    EZ reviewed this cigar on http://www.humiblog.com a while back and the wrapper shade on his VegaFina looks a lot closer to what you have here than the U.S. version. I think you’re right — the U.S. release must use a different wrapper. It also sounds like a heavier bodied cigar. The U.S. version is nice, but very lightweight.

    EZ moved to Spain from France and hasn’t posted in a while. I think he was so overjoyed with the Spanish cigar prices that he just keeled over! (But I hope not.)

    Truly one of the ugliest bloody sticks I’ve ever encountered. You can imagine my surprise as I savored the delicious taste. A really good smoke, mate. Try it!

    I don’t know if I would call this stogie ugly, my friends. It kind of looks like an earlier generation cigar. Smokes like one too, not holding nothing back. I liked pretty much every inch of it, even the last couple of hits, though they were strong, I still enjoyed them.

    to all,
    the rated version looks like the version made for France.
    this one has a brazilian mata fina wrapper and a combination of mostly dominicans fillers.
    The USA and the spanish versions are the same and have an ecuadorian seed connecticut wrapper.
    Jusf for info,, the VF spain, is the second most sold brand is spain, second only to Montecristo (cuban)
    trying to be helpful,
    Jose Seijas

    Thank you Jose,
    This cigar was indeed bought in France.

    I’m with Charlie Joe: I at first thought it looked “ugly” and then thought it rather more “old timey.” In any case, I think it reeks of authenticity. Wonder if I can get over to France some time…

    Maybe an “ugly” cigar but what an attractive band! Would love to try one of these, they look delicious

    It was good taste and smell, very easy to smoke. Awesome to the end.

    i like vegafina, probably the mildest cigars on the market and cheaaaap. have smoked the robusto and the piramides and they are both creamy, slightly nutty, smooth. nothing special but a nice, mellow smoke.

    Just returned from Madrid with a box of Vega Fina Corto Robustos. In my opinion, as one who has smoked exclusively habanos for years, this is THE cigar for those who appreciate a mild smoke with lots of flavor, body, and perfect construction.
    It’s more Cuban than the Cubans. It’s just impeccable.
