VegaFina – Toro

VegaFina - main.jpg

I have for you this week a cigar that seems to have different bands at different places and that cigar is the VegaFina. I am hoping the blend is the same but I really have no idea why the bands are different. I am starting to think they are in the middle of a change in the design and some places have older and some newer.

Blend for this is an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper with an Indonesian TBN Binder and a filler that includes Columbian, Dominican and Honduran tobaccos.

This stick is a toro (6×50).

Starting off this stick has the Frankenstein look to it a bit and feels very velvety. Not much of a scent from the wrapper and the foot gives a mild sweet barnyard scent. Cold draw gives some pepper and a bit of sweet hay.

Lighting this up and can taste the pepper along with a tiny little bit of a floral taste. Smoke is very creamy and gives you a twang on the tongue on the aftertaste. Other than that it is mostly a natural tobacco taste as the flavor holding everything else together.

Halfway and the tastes are still pretty much the same. I do have a dull nutty taste that took over for the tobacco but other than that, the pepper is still there and that tiny bit of floral is also. Not a strong floral but almost like a fresh cooking spice floral.

Here at the end the cigar turns a little sour and bitter. This has happened on all 4 I have smoked now at around the 2 inch mark.

Flavors did not change except the bitter and sour so it is a real one dimensional smoke.

I enjoyed the pepper taste throughout till the end but the cigar is just a little boring and with the ending not being very good, it really lowers my opinion of the stick.

Would I buy it again? Maybe. I want to try some smaller ring gauges to see if they have the same problem towards the end of the cigar but I would not want to smoke anything this size or larger any more.

  1. Mike wants to try a SMALLER size? What it the world coming to?!

    Nice informative review, but I will have to pass these by. The label you show is what I see on Altadis’ website, and a review from last year has the die-cut band, so it seems that you have the current model. Looks like a cost cutting move, which is not a bad thing.

  2. Hahaha, nice review! Thanks for the laugh! I had smoked this cigar a little while back which had the other band on it. Very much similar if not dead on to your review. Well done!

  3. Spot on review! I just smoked this one last night and I wasn’t impressed. Mild flavor. My wrapper had 2 small green spots the size of a pin head near the foot. You said it right when you said this is a one dimensional smoke! I don’t think I’d buy this again. Great review! Thanks.

  4. Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
    Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
    Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
    And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

    Jesus freaks out in the street
    Handing tickets out for God
    Turning back she just laughs
    The boulevard is not that bad

    Piano man he makes his stand
    In the auditorium
    Looking on she sings the songs
    The words she knows the tune she hums

    But oh how it feels so real
    Lying here with no one near
    Only you and you can hear me
    When I say softly slowly

    Hold me closer tiny dancer
    Count the headlights on the highway
    Lay me down in sheets of linen
    you had a busy day today

    Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
    Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you’ll marry a music man
    Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand
    And now she’s in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand

  5. This is becoming one of my favorite go to sticks and the price point is decent. The flavors are the same as reviewed but I try to slow things down at the end and so far no harshness.
