A brand that entered the Cuban portfolio in the 1990’s alongside Vegueros, San Cristobal, Cuaba and Trinidad. The Familiares is a firm favourite of mine. With this seemingly being the least popular of the vitolas released by the brand, examples from the late 90s are readily available. Only once have I smoked an example younger than 1999.

I often describe Vegas Robainas as more refined Montecristos. The earthy, woody notes of Montecristo are prevalent in the blend but the often overwhelming pepper has been replaced by a more approachable spice that reaches no further than the tip of the tongue. The smoke fills the mouth and, when blown out, leaves behind a creamy sensation more than flavour.

A great cigar after dinner. Despite being rich and relatively smooth, I still consider examples from the 90s a medium to full bodied smoke.
