Props to 5 Vegas

FireRobFireRob Posts: 1,904 ✭✭✭
Not a review of any kind. I am just going through the 5 Vegas that have been bombed and traded to me and really starting to dig the brand. Every one so far has been enjoyable and I haven't really gotten to the ones I was looking toward to the most. So far I have bought a few from the Daily Deal and Sprintsale and think these could easily be in my regular line up. Price point is good and so are the cigars I have had so far.

    the 5V red label is a good stick. I also like the AAA.

    From the ones I've had, Gold, and AAA they were good. The gold is a little mild for my taste but it was still very smooth. Is there one that stands out above the rest?

    Have you tried the cask strength....that's the "standout" IMHO

    Only ones I have had so far are the Gold Maduro, Cask Strength, and High Primings. To my surprise the Gold Maduro was my least favorite but still good. In the humi I have a Gold, A, AAA, Limitada 13 and Classic. As far as I know the only ones I am missing are the Relic and Miami.

    Not to worry, for now... their not on my radar just yet. I do have a tiny Gold corona size somewhere in line that I haven't tried yet.

    I'm a huge fan of the Classic and high primings,especially the corona size. I just love the straight up sweet tobacco taste. Then the A. Not so much the AAA it just doesn't do it for me. The Cask strength I thought is one that needs some aging before it develops into a really good smoke. I've only had 1 Relic and thought it was pretty good to.

    Speaking of the Miami has anyone tried the new version yet? Wonder how it stacks up to the original.

    My 5 Vegas Humidor is plump with 5 Vegas Gold right now because of an outrageous bomb from Patrickbrick. But I did see it and I almost got it, thanks for asking.

    I liked 5 Vegas from the very first one I smoked. The samplers are a good way to go if you have not tried them.

    I smoked an 'A' yesterday that had about 3 months on it and I was surprised how much it had improved with a much fuller, not strong, flavor. In fact all of the 5 Vegas line seems to improve with some rest or aging.

    I tend to go for a 5 Vegas gold with coffee and the most age I have put on them is about 3 weeks. The Gold just seems ready to go but after a recent BOMB by Patrickbrick I may actually get to let a couple sit for a lot longer.

    IMHO The Relic and Animal I think should be dry boxed for awhile. Walt could possibly add some insight about these 2.

    I like the 'A'. I've found them to be very consistent from batch to batch and in all the sizes.

    I had a Cask Strength last night that FireRob sent me. It was very good. :)

    If you make me work for your address it won't be just the relic.

    Glad to hear you liked it & I didn't lead you astray.....I love them with a glass of red wine. And the cask only gets better with ago IMO. If you can set a couple aside for a year or two you'll be in for a treat.

    Jd do yourself a solid and put the Relic away for a year or so. They can be pretty rough without some decent rest on them.

    From what I have read from JD that would never happen. Might as well ask the man to give up cigars before one will last a year in his Humi
