Don Pepin Garcia Vegas Cubanas are cigars made by Don Pepin Garcia, in Nicaragua. The blend involves the use of 100% tobacco grown in Nicaragua.
The name of the brand is a tribute to the Spanish term for tobacco fields (Vegas) in that of Cuba (Cubana). To recall the Cuban island even more, they are sold in boxes of 25 cigars, which is tradition in the birthplace of Don Pepin.
Aesthetically, the cigars are dressed in a rustic Colorado shaded wrapper. Some samples have small gaps in the filling.

Don Pepin Garcia Vegas Cubanas Corona: unlit, vegetal and spice nuances, mainly black pepper. The opening reveals herbal notes.
Overall, the Don Pepin Garcia Vegas Cubanas Corona gives off a rustic, fairly balanced smoke, but with not particularly balanced flavor profile. The bitterness that appears in the second half of the cigar, although not pronounced, is not particularly pleasant. On the other hand, the flavor intensity is good.
