Originally introduced to the market in 1996 as a full bodied brand, Vegueros was a tribute to the countless generations of men and women that have cultivated tobacco in the world famous plantations of Pinar del Rio.
The brand was relaunched in 2013 with a slightly lighter medium bodied blend in new sizes and presented in unique tins of 16 cigars. Since then packs of 4 cigars have also been introduced. Vegueros translates into English as ‘Farmers’ and these cigars have happily maintained their rustic edge. The names of each of the new vitolas have also taken inspiration from the Cuban farmers’ vocabulary and the “Centrofinos” is no Centro Fino is a classification for the leaves of the sun grown tobacco plant taken around mid way up the plant. These generally constitute Seco leaves in the blend of a Havana cigar and are valued for their satisfying taste and aromas.
