Vegueros-Entretiempos-white

 

 

Vegueros Entretiempos
Origin: Cuba
Strength: Medium-Full
Ring Gauge: 52
Length: 4.3”

It’s rare that a new Cuban brand shows up to City Cigar, or in the case of Vegueros, a brand that has returned (and been reinvented) after a long absence. The most crucial part of the reinvention is in the sizing; whereas the former Vegueros were mostly limited to longer & thinner sizes (eg, Panatela), the new batch of vitolas are more in line with popular tastes. At 4.3″ x 52, the Entretiempos falls within the ‘petit robusto’ range. And besides a larger ring gauge, the new blend offers added strength as well. An earthy, woody smoke with some noticeable spice.


vegafina-robusto

 

 

Vegafina Robusto
Origin: Dominican Republic
Strength: Mild
Ring Gauge: 50
Length: 5”

A medium-priced Dominican that compares favourably to Arturo Fuente and La Aurora vitolas in the same range, the Vegafina has become a highly sought-after brand across Europe. Vegafina cigars have a way of winning new converts with great construction and very palatable woody-sweet flavours throughout. The Robusto, like the rest of the ‘white band’ series, features longfiller tobaccos from the D.R., Columbia and Honduras, all wrapped in an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper.
