5 Vegas Classic

Torpedo (6 x 54)

Wrapper: Sumatra

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Cuban-seed Nicaraguan, Cuban-seed Dominican

 

 

There is a nice earthy/woody smell pre-light. After cutting it with a double bladed guillotine I found the draw to be quite good. The tobacco feels oily and creamy in my mouth.

Early on in the burn of this cigar the flavor is earthy and toasty. On the negative side it is beginning to crack. I was hoping that this is just because of the dry air, however, every draw the crack got worse. The binder didn’t crack from what I can see but since the wrapper was cracking and peeling a bit the cigar began to tunnel. 5 Vegas has never let me down before. This has to be a dud or something.

After an inch an a half it still isn’t smoking right. I am almost tempted to grab a different stick.

 

After some debate, a little patience, and a touch of fire, it burned past the crack. The taste was still good and I had about half a stick left.

 

The taste didn’t have much depth. The flavor was earthy with a hint of spice. The finish on the palate is short and leathery.

 

At the end of the cigar a caramel note came out.

Though I’m usually a fan of 5 Vegas this cigar let me down. I hope it was a bad one.

 

I’ll find out soon enough. I have this Cigar’s twin brother in my humi. With any luck it will be great.
