    VegaFina Robusto
    Origin : Dominican Republic
    Format : Robusto
    Size : 127 x 20 mm
    Ring : 50
    Weight : N/A
    Price : 3.20€/piece

    Even though it had a few glitches, I rather liked this cigar. VegaFina Robusto offers a nice flavor and is perfectly affordable. Good everyday smoke.

    Appearance : [rating:4/5]
    Oily and shiny wrapper, there were too many veins (IMHO) but it didn’t really affect the overall judgement. I liked to hold this cigar in my hand.

    Construction : [rating:4/5]
    Excellent burn and perfect draw. Never needed to correct it. The ash was simply flawless. However, the wrapper tried to peel off (to no avail) in the end.

    Flavor : [rating:4/5]
    With mild woody and leather notes in the first third, the VegaFina Robusto starts out real good. These flavors are also present in the second third, but get a little bit stronger. The last inch was somewhat bitter.

    Value : [rating:4/5]
    Honestly, I think that this cigar has a very good price/quality ratio. I got it for 3.20€ in my local tobacco shop and I wouldn’t complain.

    This is a 4/5 cigar. Not something extraordinary, yet a quality smoke. It provided me with a pleasant 30-minutes break after my lunch and left me completely satisfied.

      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.

      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.

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

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

      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…

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

      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

      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.

      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!

      EZ reviewed this cigar on 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.)
