Vegas Robaina Unicos 25’s
Length: 6 1/8″ Ring Gauge: 52 Flavour: Medium to Full – Box of 25 Cigars
This range was named after Alejandro Robaina the premier tobacco grower in Cuba.
All his cigars are made using closely scrutinised tobacco from his own farm.
The cigars have a rich smoke that builds with flavours of spice and chocolate.
I was fortunate to spend quite a lot of time on his farm and share a few of his cigars with him so I maybe a little biased but I think his brand is very undervalued for its consistency and quality of smoke.
Since 1845 the Robaina family has farmed tobacco continuously on its precious vegas (fields) at Cuchillas de Barbacoa situated in the San Luis district of the Vuelta Abajo tobacco zone.
Vegas Robaina cigars were introduced in 1997 as a tribute to Cuban tobacco farmers through the figurehead of Don Alejandro Robaina whose reputation in his day for producing the finest wrapper leaves was legendary. In effect the brand honours all the anonymous tobacco growers whose knowledge and skill make these cigars what they are today.
