NAME: VEGAS ROBAINA DON ALEJANDRO 2004 n-15
The Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro is a flavorful and creamy medium-full Double Corona, 7’6” (194mm) long, of 49 ring gauge, and comes in a 15 cigars box. The Don Alejandro gets its name after one of the most famous Cuban tobacco growers, Alejandro Robaina, which was working for the family business even before the revolution. Its amazing tobacco, growing in the Vuelta Abajo region, was many times honored by the Cuban government as Vegas Robaina was named best tobacco grower during the 1990s. Launched in 1997 along with the brand other vitolas, it is a very beautiful cigar to start with; the wrapper is incredibly smooth and has a nice milk chocolate color. The cigar smoke starts off with lots of chocolate and creamy coffee. There is also some leather, some nuts, a bit of wood, and vanilla. Some notes of cherries are also to be found. The cigar is very smooth, never too harsh, oscillating between a medium and a medium-full body. The construction is impeccable, flawless draw from the start to the finish, sharp burn line, slow burn, and smokable until the nub. A great Double Corona.
The Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro is a very smooth smoke, full of flavors, and is a medium-bodied cigar.
Lots of creamy coffee, various arrays of chocolate, milky, dark; earth, nuts, and some cherry notes.
The cigar is looking great, almost perfect. The nice box-press makes it almost square. It has a beautiful medium brown color, like milk chocolate. It is very smooth to the touch, one of the smoothest Habanos, thanks to its velvety and slightly oily wrapper. Only very few tiny veins or marks are visible. It is mostly firm when squeezed with just enough give on the foot.
This cigar simply one of the best Double Coronas.
