Vegas Robaina Familiares Cigar - 1 Single
Date Added: Wednesday 21 February, 2018
Michael, try another. It would be a shame never to enjoy one. This is one of the most enjoyable cigars for a while. Well, a fortnight, since my first Partagàs Series P 4, anyway. Two great cigars but also very different. The Vegas Robaina Familiares is indeed familiar, as it immediately evoked a Villager Export I enjoyed on the banks of Windermere back in the 80s, when I struggled to afford even those. That might seem faint praise of the VRF, but I have smoked more expensive brands that afforded less pleasure than that lowly Villager in subsequent years. I would describe the VRF as the fruit, rather than the flowering the tobacco plant. It is full of rich flavour, spicy without overpowering the palate. The burn is even and reliable. I judge an excellent cigar as one that absorbs the smoker and does not need liquid to soothe the tongue. The VRF is an excellent cigar and very hard to beat at the price. Impossible, perhaps.

It was ok. Just ok. Kept going out and had to re light. Probably won't but these again.

Vegueros Mananitas Cigar - 1 Single

Just smoked the second one of these. Too strong for me, with enough nicotine to stop a horse. I can see why others rave, though.

Villiger Export Pressed Cigar - Pack of 5
Date Added: Saturday 11 November, 2017
Pleasantly surprised, bought these because of all the good reviews, easy smoke, basic mild flavour, went down very well at a family party and lasted around 30 minutes. Two added bonuses are that they do not require a humidor or cutter, so good for keeping in the car.

Having read the tasting notes on these with promises of coffee, dark chocolate, nuttiness and wood this seemed to be right up my street. Upon opening these were square shaped, machine rolled cigars. A lovely dark wrapper but a bit light on the pre light nose, no particular scent other than just a bit of tobacco, but this wasn't strong. The burn was even and the ash held together well throughout the first third: however I can't comment on the final two thirds as I didn't get that far. This tasted harsh. Sadly I got a bit of earthiness but it was simply harsh tobacco. None of the promised flavours came through and I could feel it affecting my throat after the first third I decided not to persevere. OK, I'm aware that this wasn't ever going to compare to a high priced hand rolled cigar, and if I'm being honest I didn't believe that I would get all of the tastes promised. However I did expect it to be palatable and smokeable, but it wasn't. This was a shame as I wanted to like these, but I simply had no desire to carry on or even try another. I gave the remaining 4 away so there
