VegaFina Nicaragua Reserva 2022
With this special edition, VegaFina presents aficionados the first “Reserva” framed into ints Nicaragua line.
It offers an exquisite selection of cigars hand-made with a 100% Nicaragua blend, different from the one of the standard line, and whose leaves of filler, binder and wrapper have been aged for at least 3 years. A delicate process that, made with the optimal conditions that characterize the production of Tabacalera de García, results in cigars with a more homogeneous blend and a perfect balance of nuances in both aroma and flavour.
The vitola chosen for this occasion is a 48 ring-gauge x 152 mm length, finished with a pigtail; an elegant vitola named “Maestros”, in hommage to the Grupo de Maestros of the factory. VegaFina Nicaragua Reserva is presented in an attractive wooden box with a design that is based on the distinctive orange colour of the line. The 12 cigars that contains are dressed with VegaFina Nicaragua’s standard cigar bands and with a footguard made on a beautiful natural effect paper with a vintage look.
This limited edition consists of 8.000 numbered boxes and will be available at Habanos Specialists and at some other retailers in very limited quantities starting on the 25th of April 2023.
Price per box: 138 CHF

Rafael Gonzáles – Coronas de Lonsdales
On 11 February 2023, Habanos S.A. in Lisbon, Portugal, debuted the Coronas de Lonsdales from the Rafael Gonzales brand. The brand has been around for 90 years and is always reinventing itself to surprise its aficionados. The new logo design on the wrappers and boxes gives the cigar a more legible but above all contemporary look. The chosen vitola is a “Hermoso N°4” with 127 mm length and 48 cepo (19.05 mm).
A careful selection of the best tobacco leaves from the Vuelta Abajo, where the best tobacco in the world is grown, produces these Coronas de Lonsdales.
Made according to the tradition *Totalmente al Mano con Tripa Larga*, this blend results in a medium-bodied cigar that emerges from complex flavours with notes of grass and dark chocolate. The Rafael Gonzáles Coronas de Lonsdales are offered in a natural box with 10 Habanos.
The Rafael Gonzales Coronas de Lonsdales will be available in Switzerland from 18 April 2023 at Casa del Habano and from 25 April 2023 at our Habanos Specialists.
