    The gold is pure $hit... carry on

    The AAA is not bad.

    I agree. Triple A is very good.

    I think the gold maduro is a fine budget stick.

    Needs to be the maduro though...

    Maduro and the AAA are really good.  The Gold is not bad for a morning cigar, but is very mild and I tend to like the bolder cigars.

    Anyone who does not like 5 Vegas Gold and has some, I will gladly take them off your hands.

    The AAA were really good after about a year in the humi (IMO). The Cask strength is one I also enjoyed along with the gold maduro.

    If you like rocky patel, oliva, and padillas, then I think you might like the 5 Vegas Classic. The 5 Vegas Gold is very mild. (Just so you know, it's pronounced "Cinco Vegas" not "Five Vegas")

    Everybody's got their own opinions. It's really up to you to decide. You need to try them to know for sure. If you love the 5 Vegas line of cigars then you have hit the jackpot because you can get them for less $ than a lot of other cigars. However, there's a reason why some cigars cost more, and there's a reason why some cost less. You will find cigars you like and cigars you don't, all along the spectrum of price. 

    Me? I enjoyed the 5 Vegas classic in my early days. I don't seek them out anymore. I still have some. I may re-visit them if I ever find them in the bottom of some cooler.

    See?  Now, that's what makes a horse race. Everybody has their own opinion and they're all valid - to each opinion holder. 

    To me, the 5 Vegas gold is a fairly good, mild smoke. Good with a morning cup of coffee. On the other hand, the gold maduro is crap. 

    I also like the Classic and the A. The AAA is full bodied and just a bit more than I want to deal with.

    I like the Cask Strength and the Triple A with some rest.  My favorite is their limited runs of the year.  Those tend to be pretty good.

    Definitely different strokes for different folks.  I'm not a big mild cigar fan, but I've always enjoyed the 5 Vegas Gold.  I agree with jlmarta, good morning cigar with coffee. 

    The only other one I really enjoyed was the original Cask Strength. 

    There's really only one way to find out for sure which ones you'll like.

    Big fan of the classic myself. They age very well. I prefer them in the corona or robusto

    Most 5 Vegas I've had aren't bad smokes...they just aren't great smokes. I'll never go into my shop and be ecstatic that they have some laying around. Then again, I won't be mad if I have one laying in my humi.

    My wife smoked a Gold once, and swore up and down it tasted like shellfish....

    Would some numbered lime candies sweeten the deal?

    Enjoyed the classic 5 Vegas, they were great. Also tried  the maduros, which were strangely disappointing.  But, wasn't aware of the other lines, AAA, cask strength,  A etc.  But, the maduros I tried were not well kept  (love maduros) and the original bolstered my faith in cigars as I was still iffy on this flavor thing as a  newbie I could not get a hold of. So, I highly recommend 5 Vegas.
