Episode 465: VegaFina Nicaragua

Play

BACKGROUND: VegaFina Nicaragua is a Nicaraguan “puro” that uses a Habana 2000 wrapper from Jalapa, a seco leaf from Jalapa for the binder and a filler blend of ligero and seco from Jalapa with viso from Estelí. It is hand crafted at the famous Tabacalera de Garcia factory in the Dominican Republic.

VegaFina-Nicaragua

The VegaFina Nicaragua comes in three sizes and each size comes in 25-count boxes. The sizes include a 5.75 x 42 Corona, 5 x 50 Robusto and, the cigar I’m featuring today, the 6-inch x 52 ring gauge Gran Toro.

FEATURED LIBATION: Evan Williams Black Label
Evan Williams is the second largest selling Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey in the US and the world, distilled just a few blocks from the site where Evan himself built his distillery.

The featured whiskey comes in “handle” size (1.75 liter) or, as in the case of the bottle I purchased, in a smaller 750ml bottle for a price of $10.99.
