VegaFina Fortaleza 2 Reposado 10 Años

Personal Cigar Review: VegaFina Fortaleza 2 Reposado 10 Años

The VegaFina Fortaleza 2 Reposado 10 Años had an average and very linear flavor profile throughout. Just some slight fullness changes for the flavors, but not much more than that. Pretty in line with most of the European releases from the brand and not something I see myself returning to.

Personal Cigar Review: VegaFina Nicaragua Jalapa

Personal Cigar Review: VegaFina Nicaragua Jalapa

The VegaFina Nicaragua Jalapa had an average flavor profile throughout, focused around toasted cedar, earth and black pepper. It never really kept my attention and was fairly mundane. I don't see this as a cigar I'd come back to.

Team Cigar Review: VegaFina Emperadores 56 Exclusivo Francia

The VegaFina Emperadores 56 Exclusivo Francia started well with a nice combination of flavors. It dropped to average in the second third as components began dropping out and maintained that level the rest of the way. Overall, the cigar was at the level that I've been experiencing for this brand for the International market. Not anything that is mind blowing, just a serviceable cigar. Not something I'd be in a hurry to revisit.

Team Cigar Review: VegaFina Year of the Tiger 2022

Team Cigar Review: VegaFina Year of the Tiger 2022

I enjoyed the VegaFina Year of the Tiger 2022. I thought the first two thirds were good, and the cigar would have been much better if it had a final third like the first. Still, a good cigar overall. Really good price! I liked the blend and the body and strength that came with that. Never too much, and in some ways scaled back while still having some flavors.

Team Cigar Review: VegaFina Vindobona Exclusivo Austria

Team Cigar Review: VegaFina Vindobona Exclusivo Austria

Overall, the VegaFina Vindobona Exclusivo Austria had an average flavor profile that was fairly boring. No real transitions until the final third and provided nothing to maintain my attention. This is about in line with the recent non-U.S. releases from the brand and is a bit of a bummer for an exclusive cigar. Not something I'd track down to smoke more of.

Personal Cigar Review: VegaFina 1998 Vintage 1 VF 42L

The VegaFina 1998 Vintage 1 VF 42L was an average experience throughout as it was a bit dry based on the flavor components. With this being a non-U.S. release, I can see how the flavor/strength combination was setup, but it just wasn't all that exciting. This cigar definitely showed better than the VF 50 that was a U.S. release and we reviewed previously, but it's still not something I'd really see myself coming back to.

Team Cigar Review: VegaFina Fortaleza 2 Capa 20

Personal Cigar Review: VegaFina Fortaleza 2 Capa 20

The VegaFina Fortaleza 2 Capa 20 is not a U.S. release, so I can see how the low strength, non-pepper profile would focus on Europe and other areas. It's just not a cigar that I found exciting and don't really see myself coming back to or recommending anyone to try to chase it down.
