    I might have to, Peppin might not be making the blend for them anymore, I believe that who makes the miami for 5 vegas.

    I will always keep some cask strengths in my humi .... Great with red wine, prefer a cab, after a steak dinner (seriously, try it)

    * I have a new address as of 3/24/18 *

  • Yeah Pepin makes the Miami, sad to see it go
  • Cask strength are great, so excited to see the new 2013 Limitada this Summer

    Just smoked my first cask strength the other day and really liked it.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    I am a huge fan of 5 Vegas Classic. I just got a box of double coronas with the Colibri cutter freebie from my wife for Valentines day. No wonder I love her so much!!!

    I've also had 5 Vegas Gold and liked it but the Classic just pleases my palate so much better. I'm newer to the cigar world ( 5 years since I got a humidor ) so my taste isn't as evolved or developed as some of you vets I've seen here

    Love the Classic, the High Primings, and the AAA. I have a CSII I need to try as well. Wasn't huge on the A or the Gold and the Miami to me was kinda take it or leave it. Overall I'd say I like the brand. Does that qualify me to be friends now?? Does it? :D:D

    I like them in general. The AAA, Miami, Classic are probably better, for me, than the rest. Wait, I forgot the Relic.
    Hmm, actually, maybe I'm too easy to please. I like a broad spectrum of cigars, preferring different tastes and strengths at different times, seasons, meals, drinks.
    Does the Cask Strength taste like BBQ to anyone else?

    the A and AAA are always in my humidor.
    the CSI was the best thing they ever did. the limitadas are decent but im not as excited about them as i used to be.

    I always liked the Classic. Especially the torpedo. It looked like you could shank somebody with it.

    Hmmm, haven't had one in a while --- but I don't remember any BBQ flavors from the smoke...
    I'll have to light one up in the next week or two and see, you've got me curious now .... And are you thinking sweet BBQ, or smoky BBQ???

    You can check out my review I just did a couple of days ago, but bottom line, I did taste some beef. It didn't taste like BBQ so much as just a rich steak. Maybe I'm spoiled by living in Memphis with all this pork BBQ and didn't equate it with a good Texas brisket. But there is something in the flavor profile we're probably both picking up on.

    +1 on this! Also a fan of the Relic.
  • You can be my friend Ken LOL
  • I like the "A" and the Cask Strength

    I liked the gold when i smoked it..gold maduro didn't impress me, it was just ok. I tired an A and wasn't a fan but i think that was because I didn't let them rest long enough. I have a miami, cask, classic, AAA, limitada 2010 in my humidor to smoke.

    Yes !! Relic's prob my second fav of the 5V line .... like the vitola but they burned pretty fast for the size, IMO. And I tried to smoke them extra slow too.

    A little tang, more smoky. I've not had one in a while.

    Yes, definitely more TX brisket than Memphis. Hadn't thought of that, but Brisket may be more "it".

    I always keep a handful or two of Cask Strength II, the Classic i have a box+ worth at the moment and i have a handful of the AAA as well, i am a big fan of most 5v stuff, ive had major construction issues with the gold maduros so they dont get any love from me and the gold was a bit too mild.
