If you think the luxury brands are the only ones celebrating the Year of the Tiger, you’re mistaken. Altadis USA’s VegaFina brand crafted a masterful toro-sized cigar to celebrate the Chinese New Year. And the packaging is first class. A closet full of cedar hit me on the cold draw. The velvety flavor of a caramel latte reigned from the start to the midpoint. Bold notes of coffee took hold, inviting cedar to play in various intervals. As those flavors waned, rich cocoa flavors filled the voids. These simple flavors balanced perfectly with retrohales filled with subtle spices.
