Vegas Cubanas was a brand of handmade premium cigar owned by El Rey de los Habanos, Inc. It has been discontinued as of 2011.

History[edit]

This brand was created by José "Pepin" Garcia and is manufactured at the El Rey de los Habanos factory in Little Havana, Miami, Florida. It was introduced into national distribution in 2005.

In 2007, the packaging was changed completely. The boxes received new decoration, new bands were designed and the cigars were put into cellophane sleeves for the first time.

Description[edit]

A Nicaraguan puro, the wrapper is a Habano Rosado Claro. It is a mild- to medium-bodied smoke available in boxes of 25. Originally offered uncellophaned, they now come in cellophane sleeves. Cigars are aged for a minimum of one year before shipping.[1]
