These are one of DPG's first blends sold under the DPG name. I don't suffer from gustatory hallucinations, but can sometimes get something reminiscent of something edible. These have what I would call a baking spice and cedary/woody flavor profile. One of my favoriteDPG blends, and a bit lower in nicotine content. I like the corona, in the morning, with a presspot of darker roast.
The 7' x 50 is a great shape for the Vegas Cubanas; the toro is great too. Terrific construction and a slightly different flavor profile than the other DPG blends gives this one its distinction. Rich cedar up-front, then wonderful sweet, spicy flavors dominate, sans the pepper overload in some of the other DPG blends (e.g. the Blue Label). IMO, the Vegas Cubanas are more medium than full which also give it distinction. I recommend this for someone who shies away from DPG's more peppery blends and of course to all DPG lovers who haven't tried one.
I am just finishing my first stick. Very pleased with myself that I tried this first, before the Avo #2 in tonight's lineup. The immediate gratification this cigar brings to a hot summer evening is difficult to describe - the title of this review says it best.Only drawback is the price. It's a little high, but compares in quality to the Torano 59 Silver and that stick is in the same (too high) range. If these were $2 sticks I would smoke 4 times as many.
A very nice cigar that was just the right amount of strength for me. Great flavor and smell but I think it had slightly less complexity than other similarly priced cigars. The construction was solid except for a small bit of the wrapper that was undone after I removed the cellophane but fortunately the defect only affected appearance. I think I should say that if you're smoking the torpedo that you may have to cut more off the cap than normally. The cigar is so tightly packed (good thing) that the draw was overly tight until I trimmed off more. Long lasting and very enjoyable 9/10.
a little on the mild side but still pretty darn good cigars
Just as good as the original Vegas Cubanas. Nice, even draw. Medium to full strength, at least to me.
A decent smoke however lacking in flavor. For the price there is no way I would buy a box. It is a good smoke but price point should be around 3-4 bucks a stick.
