Most VegaFinas aren’t ever offered to the American market, but this new release is an exclusive for the U.S.
VegaFina was founded in 1998, meaning this year marks the 25th anniversary of the brand.
Most cigars are aged for 30-90 days, these cigars were aged for 10 years after rolling.
The new cigar features Dominican piloto tobaccos from two regions in the filler.
Both of the wrappers on the H. Upmann 1844 Special Edition Barbier come from Ecuador, though they are two different varietals.
The new cigar is inspired by the modern world of banking.
The new line draws on a pair of Ecuadorian wrappers to both give it its design and drive the flavor profile.
It’s the first box-pressed VegaFina ever.
