Vega Fina Sumum Edición Especial 2012

This Vega Fina is another Altadis creation with European sensibilities. The hefty 5” x 56 Sumum is a little harsh to start, but settles into a pleasantly mellow character that rarely tops medium-bodied. Somewhat loosely constructed, the draw is easy with only a slight issue with uneven burn for the first half. Leather and salted nuts are the predominant flavors, while coffee, cedar and cocoa tip-toe across the taste-buds. The contrast between the dark wrapper and beautiful white ash is as pleasing to the eye as is the easy-going character of the smoke. Setting aside the issues with the draw, this is a fine addition to the Vega Fina line and a great “special edition” cigar for the price that has a little something for everyone.
