Altadis USA revealed the VegaFina Sumum 2012 at the 2013 tradeshow in Las Vegas. This 5 x 56 medium to full-bodied, hefty ring gauged robusto delivers rich flavors of spice with balanced amounts of strength and a hint of natural sweetness. The blend represents a somewhat new direction for the VegaFina line, which has been moving away from their milder history.
The use of a Connecticut Broadleaf as a binder combined with a three country blend of fillers from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Peru enhances this cigar's complexity and creates quite a unique offering for the VegaFina brand. The icing on the cake is the dark, high priming Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The VegaFina Sumum 2012 was limited to only 4,000 boxes of 10 cigars, making this a relatively low production limited edition release for the cigar giant Altadis.
