The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2004

Vegas de Fonseca Sobrinos

14

Fonsecas have been rolled in the Dominican Republic since the early 1970s under the tutelage of Manuel Quesada. The core brand is creamy and very mild, made with Connecticut-shade wrappers. The Vegas de Fonseca brand is a new take on Fonseca, powered by a multinational blend and finished with a Cameroon wrapper, aged in the palm bark known as tercios. The cigars are medium-bodied and full of flavor, and at $4.25 for the 5 1/4 by 50 Sobrino, they are also quite the bargain.
