Review #99: ---   Bought a few of these cigars from a cardbord pack of five. Presentation is beautifull with oily medium brown veineless wrapper and a very nice band. Cigars were rolled perfectly without any soft spots and had a good weight in the hand. So far so good. All the cigars also had an excellent draw and even slow burn. After cutting and lighting the first cigar a discrete and very pleasant aroma developed and different tastes started to appear. Now I would like to point out that I actually dont write my tasting notes down while smoking the cigar, but had this time decide to do so. Amount of complexity found in the first of the Vegas Robaina Famosos was beyond anything I had expirienced so far. The cigar started with medium strenght and the flavors were changing with every puff(in my case thats about two small puffs taken per minute). The cigar opened with nice dry cocoa taste just to be replaced by a combination of vanilla, spice and cream with a touch black pepper at the end of the long finish. Black pepper than dissapeared leaving room for spice, cocoa and cream. In the next few puffs there were some leather, wood and slightly sweet notes. Changing of the flavors continued once more with black pepper joining the aforementioned combination but this time the sweetness was not present. Spice and black pepper now remained with just a touch of ginger bread. Smoking on the leather returned amongst the spice and wood notes with just a bit of the sweetness this time. Now here is where I need to stop and say that this was still the first third of the smoke. If only the cigar progressed this way or atleast retained the flavors it had thus far but instead it became quite harsh with more pronounced leather and just a little bit of spice remaining like this and ending with medium-full strenght. Besides being dissapointed with the rest two thirds of the cigar, having started the way it did, this was a very interesting expirience. The next few VR Famosos I smoked in the upcoming days had all the positive characteristics , construction and flavor wise, of the first cigar that I had smoked and flavor presence and evolution were equally distributed through the entire smoking time of 1h45 minutes. Despite the first cigar of the bunch the rest turned out to be very satisfying in terms of flavor, smoking time and price of about 14 USD per stick which IMO makes the VR Famosos a solid cigar. - Submitted by promajk on June 26, 2010

Review #97: ---   These are such a pleasure to smoke. Smooth sweet flavor. Never disappointed - Submitted by Bradley on May 28, 2010


Review #96: ---   I love the factory size Hermoso No.4. Elegant in the hand and mouth, I love the draw of the size. The Vegas Robaina is no exception. A sweet tasting tobacco, cherries. The middle was tart, a nice tobacco cedar finish. I will smoke these again. Great brand. - Submitted by Marcel Z on May 11, 2010


Review #95: JUN 06 I've smoked very few Robainas in all my time smoking cigars, generally because I have always found them dissapointing. I went to the cigar shop today to select the nicest looking VR they had, and it was a beautifully rolled example with four years on it. This was in honour of Don Alejandro who died on Saturday. Everything about it was fantastic save fr one problem, which is always the problem I find with this mark - plenty of pepper from the thick smoke with delicious flavour...but not enough! The flavour is always overpowered by the pepper and almost menthol-esque after-taste. Gorgeous, subtle and complex notes that are very signature to this mark - woody, hay, liquorice, candied orange peel...fantastic, just too muted and hidden under the pepperyness. A real shame. I also find VR cigars to get quite harsh by the last inch, no-matter what the age. The best of this mark is the Don (double corona), though I will always go for a Lusitanias or aged Hoyo DC instead however. I did enjoy this cigar, and maybe one day I'll find a particular box with a more balanced blend. - Submitted by A. Dyer on April 20, 2010
