Alejandro Robaina passes away

By Richard on April, 19th 2010 - 4:11 pm

Alejandro Robaina, the famous face of the Vegas Robaina cigar brand and major figure of the Cuban cigar industry died last weekend (Sat 17th April) at the ripe old age of 91. His family have been tobacco farmers in Cuba sine 1845. Alejandro Robaina was honored by Habanos S.A. with a brand named after him. Launched in 1997,the Vegas Robaina brand was developed to rekindle the 'Old Havana' style of cigars. Strong and harsh, with hints of intense sweetness. The Man will be missed as he was one of the few faces one could associated to the Cuban Cigar Industry. Many thanks for all the great smokes!

This man is a legend and genius. The Famoso is one of the best cigars I've ever smoked and one of if not my favorite. I hope Vegas Robaina continues their excelency in cigar manufacturing.

Possible delay on shipping caused by a volcano!

I know it sounds strange, but as you will all have heard, Europe is on shut down due to a volcanic eruption in Iceland. The ash cloud is causing problems with the air transport, leading to several days of total grounding. Please bear in mind that your orders are shipped via air freight and thus, you should expect some delays. Officials still do not have a clear idea of when the situation will return to normal, but in the mean time we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Richard and David
