    Default Vegueros Mananitas


    2 Not allowed!

    Price Paid: Equivalent of around 3 (or less) in Cuba.
    Length: 4" Ring Gauge: 46
    Number Smoked: 1

    First Third: Had a really heavy ammonia taste, not totally unpleasant, but not that nice either. Some grass as well.

    Second Third:
    Introduced a woody earthy taste with some light pepper.

    Last Third:
    Best to last. Really strong pepper when exhaled through the nose. The woody taste continued with some spice and leather notes. Started to feel a bit creamy with some sweet vanilla notes merging. I think I detected something fruity as well.

    Construction: Solid. Hold its ash until the last third. No splits. Only required a slight touch up to get the wrapper to burn evenly. Draw was tight to begin with.

    Smoke Time: Around 40 Minutes.
    Overall: A decent cigar with nice flavour I would love to try again. UK price is around 9 for this I think it offers good value. It is quite a short cigar, but with that ring gauge it could be known as a little fatty. 7/10.

    I've often had the fruity notes from these but no ammonia, perhaps they're in their sick period.

    In all honesty I'm not sure. I think they would benefit from ageing, it was really noticeable, maybe a bad one. Was enjoyable though.
