Default Vegas Cubanas (Don Pepin Garcia)

Size: Robusto

Price: About $4.00 bucks a stick.

Construction: Over all very nice.

Prelite: Hints of Floral, Sweat.

1ST Third: I noticed some mild pepper and spice. very smooth.

2nd Third: Not not noticing much of a flavor profile, some hints of a floral flavor but still very smooth.

3rd Third: The cigar is beginning to get a very creamy profile with hints of pepper.


This cigar was a pleasant surprise, no burn issues, lots of creamy smoke only ashed twice.If you haven't tried one of these I recommend giving it a shot.

What size was it that you only ashed twice? Robusto? I love when the cigar is well constructed like that. Glad you enjoyed it!!

Nice! I had a VC corona and had a similarly positive experience.

Thanks for taking the time to do a review.

Thanks for the review! I find these to be very enjoyable.I have a box of the coronas. They are even better with a couple months rest.
