VegaFina 1998 La Romana Cigars
The VegaFina 1998 La Romana cigar range was created in homage to the year of creation of this now classic brand. They are still made at the “tabacalera de Garcia” in La Romana, Dominican Republic. The blend chosen here is more aromatic and moves us away from the sweetness so appreciated by their big brothers. A selection of tobaccos aged for a minimum of three years is used here and is, in a way, the signature of the “1998”. This gives them their very special taste. But make no mistake, although the brand’s style is retained, we are dealing with a much more aromatic cigar. The blend gives us the keys: for the filler, we find Nicaraguan and Colombian tobaccos which reinforce the sweetness of the Dominican tobacco. The wrapper comes from Java in Indonesia and finally the superb wrapper selected comes from Ecuador.
In the end, we have a very balanced and nuanced cigar, no demonstration of power or vulgarity. A full and pleasant smoke accompanies us throughout the cigar, which could remind us of the classic range, but in a completely different dimension! An aromatic cigar of medium strength – a very nice success!
