Possibly some of the best tobacco to ever pass through my lips. In every aspect, I was very pleased with the Vegas Robaina Famosos.

Appearance : ★★★★★
This medium-length cigar is very smooth in appearance, the occasional vein adding to the allure of the deep chocolate hue. Very masculine appearance.
Construction : ★★★★★
Excellent construction, not too tight, not too lose. Incredible halo of smoke. Possibly the smoothest burn that I have ever had the pleasure to witness.

Flavor : ★★★★★
The first taste is powerful, taking you to a pure unspoiled beach at sunset, with a cherry flavor that lingers on your lips like candy. This wonderful tropical sensation continues as you take the first third in. Pure delight. The second third still has the same sweetness, yet with more of a fir or pine sensation lingering in your mouth and on your lips. You just want to keep licking your lips. Amazing. The final third seems to intensify, requiring far less strength in your draw, but if taken in lightly, you still maintain the flavorful sensation.

Value : ★★★★★
Worth every dollar that you are willing to spend on it. Excellent smoke for any occasion! Most certainly worth more than the cost.

Overall Rating : ★★★★★
If I have ever smoked a five star cigar, the Famosa is it. It is the cigar for any occasion, any time of day.

  1. I was given this one as a gift. I was pleasantly surprised (thought it might be too young) – it was fairly full-bodied, with flawless burn and construction and enjoyable woody smoke with leather.

  2. Cubana Jack says:

    Wow, that’s about all I can say. I like me a good powerful smoke, and this was one of them. This might take the little smokers down a notch or two though.

  3. Underratted! (Well, mostly not even MENTIONED!)
    Bliss for the price. Even whoops the legendary Cohiba Robusto.

  4. I currently own a LPM April 2008 box. Have smoked 4, so far, not much flavor. Waiting for them to come around. Probably the best looking cigars in my collection.

  5. This is, without a doubt, my favourite robusto on the market!

    It has great construction, and lovely flavour development. Leather into dark chocolate and berries, followed by creaminess and more leather, then a blast of spice to finish.

    I find them to have many of the same qualities of a great, smooth gin, especially through the middle section of the cigar.

  6. I am totally agree whith Mr. Graham, a 5 stars puro for one of the best smoke in Cuba.Rich and elegant a J.Sukling’s capuccino style

  7. These are becoming my go to cigar lately. Perhaps my favorite regular production cuban, especially towards the middle. A vastly underrated cigar. I am quickly making my way through a box as I think about smoking them all the time.

  8. I could not agree more with this review. Vegas makes an exceptional product and as a Vegas fan I am glad that for the most part this brand is still under the radar. Many of us veteran cigar smokers know that most cigar smokers will reach for the Montecristo, Cohiba or Romeos when purchasing cigars. The fact that these sticks are not usually the go to cigar of most new smokers means that their price is still very reasonable compared to other similarly sized cigars. Every smoker should have a few Famosos in their humidor.

    disappointing, started quite well, bit of leather, bit of sweetness but not much development and lost balance already around the half-way point. not bad but poor value.

  10. Very impressive. Wonderful build and burn. Smooth, creamy, interesting flavors include leather, some sweetness, nice flavor evolution. In middle some medium cocoa. Very pleased.

  11. I received one of these from canadian cigar club. Not impressed at all. Very poor construction, loose and messy. Makes me wonder if they are selling real Cubans… Perhaps some purchased in person will yield results more in line with the rest of the reviews

  12. SmokingCow says:

    Discovered these quite by mistake. I bought a 5 pack because they seemed dirt cheap for Cubans. I remember taking the first one out and was surprised at the beauty and the weight they had in my hand. After the first pull I knew I had stumbled apon gold. Now I have a box in the humi all the time. I have noticed the price creeping up though. I think the word is getting out but I glad they are still unknown.

  13. Couldn’t agree more with this review. VR Famosos is good anytime cigar at a reasonable price. Ash holds extremely well and there’s flavor throughout. Not a complex cigar. Simple. Consistent.

  14. Raj Mahbubani says:

    What can I say..think the Robaina is a classier version of Hoyo de Monterray and H Upmann..u want to pay full attention to the flavors.
