The brand VegaFina, considered one of the world’s most sold premium cigar brands, is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2018. Launched in Spain in 1998 by the cigar company Tabacalera, a leading Habanos distributer, VegaFina has become the best-selling premium cigar brand in the nation – the largest cigar market after the USA – with a presence in more than 45 countries.
With a wide range of cigars handcrafted in Tabacalera de García (Dominican Republic), VegaFina is known for offering consumers cigars of a very high and consistent quality. This is a result of a long and careful process combining the selection of the best tobacco leaves with the mastery of expert Dominican torcedores.
Each one of its three lines, Classic, Fortaleza 2, and Nicaragua, provides passionados a smoking experience for every taste and occasion. VegaFina enriches its portfolio annually with launches in line with new consumer trends, and special editions, which stand out for the innovative spirit of the brand.
Gran Reserva for a Special Year
To commemorate such a distinct occasion, VegaFina is launching worldwide an limited edition of 7,000 numbered boxes that unveils the first Gran Reserva of the brand. It’s a cigar in a unique vitola named 20 Aniversario (54 x 146 mm, finished with a pigtail), which has been specially created by the Grupo de Maestros of Tabacalera de García and handcrafted by the most expert team of the factory’s torcedores.
Carefully selected Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco leaves, aged for at least five years, have been used. Pedro Ventura, operations and product development manager, and member of the Grupo de Maestros explains: “We have been working on the selection of the leaves and their aging process over the past few years, knowing that 2018 was going to be VegaFina’s year. We cannot be happier with the result: the composition of the blend and its careful aging in our cedar rooms has resulted in a very rich and complete cigar that maintains the strength and balanced flavor of the VegaFina classic line and which stands out for its intense woody aroma and rich flavor, full of nuances.”
VegaFina Gran Reserva 20 Aniversario comes in an exclusive and elegant black-lacquered box. Its design enhances both the name of the brand and the logo, which was created for the occasion of its 20th anniversary. The logo is also represented in the special cigar rings that dress the 10 cigars that it contains.
