Vegueros Centrefinos are now available in Australia. The Habanos distributor for Asia and Pacific, Pacific Cigar Company, has released the new Vegueros down under.
The 5⅛x50 robusto was officially announced in 2018 but saw it’s debut on the market in April of 2019. Switzerland was the first country to receive the cigars. And now the tins, with 16 of the Vegueros Centrefinos, are available in Australia as well.
The Vegueros brand was born to pay homage to all Cuban farmers who, from generation to generation have grown tobacco mainly in Pinar del Río. It is at Francisco Donatién Factory located in Pinar del Río where the Habanos of this brand are produced. Vegueros brand was completely discontinued in 2012. The old sizes and packaging disappeared. And in 2013 the brand remerged. Three new sizes were released. These are the Tapados 4¾x46, Entretiempos 4⅜x52, and Mananitas 4⅞x46. All in beautiful tins. And now the Centrefinos has been added to the line-up.
