Vegas Robaina is the second of two new lines introduced by Habanos S.A. in the 90's.
This line was officially launched in Spain, in the spring of 1997, and will be made available to the world market in the fall.
The brand features three, hand rolled sizes, classified as:
Don Alejandro (Double Corona) Famosos (Robusto) and Unicos (Piramide).
Vegas Robaina is named after Don Alejandro Robaina, who is famed for growing the finest wrapper in the Vuelta Abajo, (Pinar del Rio), region of Cuba for more than fifty years.
The cigars are made from the best tobacco in Cuba, and feature wrapper grown on Sr. Robaina's farms.
They are described as a medium-strong blend, characterized by an excellent aroma, wonderful presentation, and a fine burn.
