This Vegas Cubanas invictos is a robusto size (5 x 50) cigar by Don Pepin Garcia. I don’t know the age of the cigar, but the production date is post 2007 as the band had the new design.
The Habano Rosado claro wrapper is smooth, oily and almost without any veins. I didn’t like the cigar band that much. The cigar has a nice peppery barnyard aroma. The predraw is fine and I can’t find anything wrong with the construction upon first inspection.
I can taste wood with some herbal flavors. After half an inch the herbal flavor disappears and I get a little bit of leather shining through the wood. My mouth gets a bit dry. Half an inch later I can taste a peppery chocolate, slightly salt. The chocolate slowly disappears and salty spices remain. At 2/3rd the flavors grow in strength, wood and spices although the wood is just a temporarily flavor, but it makes a comeback at the end. The final few puffs also bring a fresh, almost menthol like, flavor to the cigar.
I got a lot of smoke and the burn is straight. This medium bodied, medium flavored cigar produces a dark gray ash. This is a good cigar but not memorable.
Would I buy this cigar again? Maybe, It is a good cigar but I like the CI Legend or the DPG black better. Then again, maybe my expectations for this cigar were too high.
