The 5 Vegas Series, pronounced Cinco Vegas, is one of those cigars that is great enough to have in the humidor at all times, but still cheap enough to smoke every day. 5 Vegas is the highest rated non-Cuban cigar, and this Nicaraguan cigar is as robust and full of flavor as the city itself.
The 5 Vegas is a truly beautiful cigar to look at. The Costa Rican maduro wrapper gives a dark, smooth, and oily look. The black and gold wrapper is a sight itself across the foot of this stogie. The filler is a mix of fillers from three different countries, and each has been aged for 4 years. As you strike it up, it will light fairly easily, and keeps an even burn with a solid white ash. The draw is perfect, giving the smoke plenty of air to mix with it, making the smoke lighter, even though it’s a fuller cigar.
The Series ‘A’ Alpha has a variety of different flavor notes. It begins with a bit of leather and spice, with a hint of molasses in the first third, too. As it goes along, you’ll notice a certain saltiness in the notes, one that you’ll notice with any maduro, to go along with the changing palates. It moves into a stronger taste of spice and sweet of coffee and chocolate. The final third has a few more earthy notes, with charred cedar coming into the palate and notes of espresso.
The 5 Vegas is the cigar that you’re going to want around when you aren’t sure what you should smoke. The flavors of this cigar are great, and if you’re living in the U.S. is probably one of the best cigars you’re going to find. To top off this cigar, the price is very low, so you’ll find yourself enjoying them more and more. It’s a robust cigar that isn’t harsh, and still has great flavor. You’ll find them making their way to the top of your humidor because you never want to be too far away from this stick.
