IPCPR 2013: Vato Cigars


We’ve been handed a lot of cigars, but only one booth has given us chocolate-covered bacon. Vato Cigars is based out of Binion’s in downtown Las Vegas, Nev. and it only seemed fitting that they made their debut at this year’s IPCPR. While most of their cigars are probably new to anyone that doesn’t make a regular appearance at the downtown casino, they also brought a new Black Diamond, their strongest cigar.

The Booth
Chocolate-covered bacon, a grill, picnic tables. Vato is a party, decorated by Sarah Vato herself. 

Vato Black Diamond

Black Diamond
It’s the strongest cigar in the portfolio, something that they made given the demand. It’s produced in Miami, like the majority of the portfolio. And yes, that wrapper is two different colors.
