    Two souvenirs I picked up in Spain: a Motörhead Pale Ale from the UK and a Vedado Robusto from Nicaragua.

    I don't know much about this cigar, except that it seems to be intended for the Spanish market only, and is rolled in Rocky Patel's TaviCusa outfit in Esteli.

    The first flavors are woody with some creamy sweetness. A good first impression. At about $3 a stick, my expectations are, what shall I say, modest.

    The flavors aren't very strong but they are definitely there. The pepper is nice, not too harsh.

    I'm only halfway through, but I think it's safe to say this cigar provides great value for money.

    With two inches to go, I'm starting to draw in some heat. The mouth-end is also tarring up slightly. Time to put it down.

    What a pleasant surprise this cigar is. Any Dutch importer interested in bringing this stogie to Holland? I'd sure like to stock up on this one!
