The Garcia y Vega Difference
There are some benefits to smoking a machine made cigar. To create these, tobacco is skillfully fed through special machines that are perfectly calibrated to offer consistent quality, and a perfect draw . When a cigar is rolled by hand, applying too much pressure can jam the filler making it virtually un-smoke able. Machine made cigars are also very affordable. Their friendly sticker price is because large amounts of cigars can be produced with much less labor when compared to hand rolled cigars.
Since handmade cigars are a premium product using all long filler tobaccos and commanding a heftier price, one would also expect a superior smoking experience. However, that’s not always the case.
Whether it be imported or domestic, not all cigars are created equal. A handmade that is poorly rolled, inadequately aged or contains inferior tobacco can make for a very unpleasant smoking experience.
When it comes to the machine made, much of the same applies, except for the hand rolling part. So what makes a brand like Garcia y Vega stand out from the crowd? Simple, it’s the quality of the tobacco and the companies 133 years of experience in the industry.
Garcia y Vega Cigars are machine crafted with an all –tobacco Indonesian wrapper, a homogenized tobacco leaf binder, and Caribbean Basin Cuban Seed short filler tobaccos. The result is a mild and flavorful cigar with rich notes of earth, cocoa, spice, and cedar.
Although, obviously not the real deal, Garcia y Vega comes as close to the premium cigar experience as you will ever find in a machine made cigar.
