Your take on the 5 vegas miami?

I have been thinking about getting some to try but i wanted to see what people thought of them before i went ahead and got some. Also what other 5 vegas people recommend i have had the 5 vegas series 'A' archetype and i liked it but i haven't had any other 5 vegas and i just wanted to see what others thought some of the good ones were.

    I am a fan of the Miami. They are my favorite 5 Vegas but I am also an unabashed Pepin fan so I may be a bit biased.

    I really like the classic as well. Had my first 'A' this past weekend and really liked it but still liked the classic and Miami better. I have a bunch of Miami's if you want to make a small trade. Shoot me a PM if you are interested.

    I personally like the miami as well. I've got a bunch in the humi right now and actually just burned one the other day. Nice flavor profile...its got a rich taste, I find it hard to put down at times.

    I also have some casks i'm waiting to try as well as a small shipment of cask II's coming. Kuzi if your interested I might have a few I'm willing to part with.

    The Miami is a great stick. Try the knuckle as I believe this is the best of the bunch.

    This post has gone cold - sorry - but I just read it... :)

    They had a deal on the 5 Vegas Miami a few months ago at various places. I picked up quite a few and loved 'em then. I just tried another today and still thought it was great. I followed that up with a box pressed classic and it was good also, but it wasn't the Miami. The Miami had just a more distinctive flavor and a more medium full body than the classic. If you can be more medium full. Actually I guess the classic is medium to me. The Miami just had more of a nutty, cederesque, little pepper, little leather kind of flavor with a bigger finish... I thought the knuckle had just more spice. A little bitter spice before my humi settled down. Like spice - don't like bitter (usually for me the key to slow down) Yes, I liked the Knuckles enough to order 36.

    On a different note - I shouldn't mention this - but CI had a Joe's special on the Cask Strength 2. I believe it was 10 for 29 bucks. I wasn't impressed with the one I smoked, but thought perhaps If let 'em sit in the Humi they would get better. I just wasn't impressed enough to pull the trigger. Sorry Kuzi - I should have dropped a line...

    I think the Miami is a tasty smoke, though i've not had enough to form a good opinion as of yet.

    My take on the Miami ... YUM! Not much else needs to be said.

    not sure about the Miami but the A I had yesterday was great.
  • The 'A', especially the little anomaly, is fantastic for the price. The limitada '06 was my favorite of the bunch, the '07 was very inconsistent with the few i had and wasn't that good even when i got the decent ones. Classics are a decent medium stick, nothing special but not bad. The Miami i've only had in a pc, which was rather tasty, but i only had one so i can't really comment on it too much.
