La Vieja Habana Brazilian Maduro Bombero
A well-made cigar at an honest price. La Vieja Habana cigars were the first Drew Estate cigars, debuting in 1994. Handmade with a well-balanced Cuban Sandwich blend of long & short Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, each La Vieja Habana Brazilian Maduro Bombero is rolled in a dark, Brazilian Maduro wrapper. These cigars draw easily with a rich, smooth, earthy flavor, producing clouds of thick blue smoke and a sweet, inviting aroma. Try this great value cigar, and taste why La Vieja Habana is the lead horse in the Drew Estate stable.
Update: After a week in the humidor, they turned into a decent smoke. After two weeks, I can give them an 85, and I am a stingy grader. Bottom line: they just needed that time! I can now agree with the prevailing grade! This has been a good lesson.
Did somebody send me a box of seconds? Not good out of the box! I will see how they hold up after being in the humidor awhile. For now, they are approximately as good taste, burn, finish, etc. as the bundles I buy at the drugstore.
I ordered a box on a whim looking for an everyday cigar. WOW! I love this cigar! I tried 2 the first week and was not impressed. Tried another a month later and could not believe it was the same cigar and every one since has been just as good. So many great woody flavors. Love this cigar!
