There are few people in the western hemisphere who know the current Chinese zodiac better than cigar smokers. Each new year brings several blends named after the corresponding creature that represents the given year. 2022 may have been the year of the tiger, but with 2023 comes a new slate of smokes celebrating the year of the rabbit.
In one of our recent blogs about holiday smokes, you may recall that we listed Davidoff’s Year of the Rabbit as a standout cigar for the season. However, that box of perfectos might not fit every smoker’s price point. If you want to get more bang for your buck while ringing in the lunar new year, Vega Fina has you covered.
That being said, this isn’t a run-of-the-mill smoke. In fact, their Year of the Rabbit blend is limited to just 1,500 boxes for the entire U.S. market. This limited availability isn’t the only thing that makes this cigar special, either. Vega Fina’s Year of the Rabbit was crafted by the legendary Grupo de Maestros—a team of just five people with hundreds of years of combined blending experience between them. Needless to say, the results are spectacular.
The cigar delivers a wide range of flavors from the first to the final puff. You’ll find everything from notes of sweet cocoa to spicy pepper, with nutty and woody hints somewhere in between. All of this flavor is packed into a handsome Torpedo vitola and held in a luscious Ecuadorian Habano wrapper.
What more do you need to hear? Start the year of the rabbit off on the right foot with a cigar blended by some of the best in the business.
