    Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro Cigar Review - What Don Alejandro cigars are you smoking??? I agree 100% with Mackson, I have NEVER smoked a Don Alejandro (98-08) that hasn't ranked in my top 10 cigars EVER. To be clear, I have smoked som... Read the full review here: Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro...

    I had a great night last night. I was at a special event at my local B&M with Steve Saka, President of Drew Estates and Alejandro Martinez Cuenca, Owner of Joya de Nicaragua. The opportunity to talk with these two cigar giants was incredible. Their passion for cigars is intense. I learned a lot...

    Vegas Robaina Don Alejandro 2000 Ring Gauge: 49 Length: 7.6 Medium-Full Bodied Ok, so started off by getting some food in my stomach. I sat down and ate some Lox and drank a glass of water or two. The wrapper on this cigar reminded me of the EL 2004 Sublimes... Nice dark chocolate colored...

    Got this and one of its twin brothers in a recent package. So, no box/factory info, assuming it’s an ’06 for that reason and for its flavor, which I’ll get to in a moment. Pre-light: this sucker is HUGE! What, like nine inches? Good thing I was hanging with MikeS and some other fine folks...

    VR Don Alejandro Jul 00 I got this along time ago when a friend of mine used to give me free cigars with fillup nudge, nudge. It has been sitting in my smoking humidor for at least 4 years. It has not been kept, therefore in the finest of conditions but survived the span fine. It was always...

    The double corona VR is the original release - same box code as my cohiba esplendidos! smoked both right after arrival from a 4 hr trip, the boxes were in the car trunk and subject to cold, the travel shock was there, the Don Alejandros tasted kind of flat, I should wait a few weeks for the next...

    Proportedly 40% pre-embargo tobacco. They look great. Smell gives you hints that maybe these are legit. Says aspm-97 on the bottom of the box but I'm guessing that means nothing maybe its bug free certification. Gonna smoke one later tonight.

    Today in today´s newspaper, SvD, there was an article about the living cuban legend Alejandro Robaina, don Alejandro. (I translate the IMO most importants parts!) Don Alejandro who is 85 years old and famous for growing among the best wrappers in Vuelta Abajo, started to smoke when he was 10...

    This box is from SCO and is dated SEp. 02. The cigars are awsome to look at. Dark and oily, very few viens. The construction is top notch, definately the product of an experienced torcedor. Ok on to the review... this cigar tastes great from start to finish. Perfect draw and burn. It is very...

    A Few words from Don Alejandro Robaina I received a newsletter from one of my sources. The owner wrote about his trip to Cuba. This is one paragraph from the newsletter that I though was interesting... how Mr. Robaina prefers to use a punch cutter His favorite Vegas Robaina cigars are the...

    JSL - You requested a requested a review of this one. I have only had three Don Alejandros, all of them in December 1999 - when I was in Cuba. Unfortunately, so much time has passed I cannot give you a detailed review. What I do remeber is that all three were consistent in their characteristics...
