    Vegas Robaina Famoso Received this Famoso from Shuckins A nice triple cap tops this milk chocolate colored cigar. The veinless wrapper lacks cosmetic flaws, the cigar lights well, burns evenly, and yields a black speckled ash. This fine looking treat emits a toasted aroma apparent in the...

    OK this guy has seen the same environment as the Monte #2 that I reviewed earlier in the week. Stored at ~68 rh (still trying to bring it down & 65 % HF beads on the way). Again its young but I still want a reference point. On the plus side this did make the groups recent "young habanos that...

    I believe this was very well-aged because it came from somewhere (maybe Tennessee), where people are patient & smart about these things & have room for big humidors. Pre-light scent: subtle, refined tobacco.. Looked good w/ no soft spots nor ugly veins. Lit quickly. Start...

    OK, so my first forays into the world of CC's has netted some CG's and Dalia's. I really enjoy the medium ring-gauges but, now I'm looking at adding a box of something in the Hermoso No. 4 vitola. Here are the two sticks I'm considering: - Saint Luis Rey Regios - Vegas Robaina Famosos Which...

    Not sure on the box date here, as it was one of a few singles I picked up. A box is on the way, though... Pre-light is fairly faint, with a nice floral sweetness. After lighting, a rich punch of honey and coffee, with some floral notes. There's also a flavor I can never quite place, maybe...

    I just read that Alejandro Robaina passed away Saturday at the age of 91. A real gentleman and a true legend. I just saw that this was already posted in another forum, but we can all smoke one of his cigars in his memory.

    Does anyone know if VR has significantly changed their bands in the past few years? I have a friend that recently gave me one, but I already have a few and the band on his looks pretty suspicious to me -- mine are really fancy, bordering on cheesy! (mine match the views on all the websites) The...

    Finally got the pics of my B-day box downloaded - smoked 1st one last week and WOW! It was incredible - not the prettiest wrapper I've seen but nice, dark brown & oily- construction was great, burned even with loads of creamy smoke and the taste was to die for. Still a relative newbie with...
