Vega Fina Year of the Tiger

The Ecuadoran wrapper is Colorado Maduro and very smooth. The binder is Nicaraguan and the filler is a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco. The cold draw is perfect. Drinking an HEB 1877, a light version of a Topo Chico.

Initial flavors are smooth with a bit of earth (most likely from the Nicaraguan tobacco in the filler). There is also a light sweetness on the tongue. The ash and burn begin even.

In the first third the cigar is mostly mild with touches of earth and sweetness with slight touches of spice around the edges. The ash and burn remain steady.

During the second third the cigar remains mild to medium bodied. The flavor profile remains steady with a bit more spice in the mix. The ash is fairly solid and the burn remains even.

Approaching the final inch the cigar begins to heat up some while retaining the flavor profile. The retohale is stronger than the body of the cigar. The ash remains fairly solid and the burn remains even.

Overall a pleasant medium bodied smoke. The finish is smooth with light spices. The construction is excellent and the complexity remains consistent. 8.8/10, Joe Bob says check it out.
