5 Vegas Limitada 2006

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra

Binder: Brazil

Filler: Cuban seed Brazilian, Cuban seed Nicaraguan, Cuban seed Dominican.

 

There is an oily sheen on this cigar and it smells very interesting. There is nothing overpowering about the smell of this cigar at all. After a clip this cigar has a good draw and a mild taste.

 

The cigar starts with a strange leathery taste with maybe a hint of pepper but it quickly settles into smoother leather and the pepper becomes more defined. I can’t put my finger on the aftertaste but I like it.

Approaching an inch and a half in the cigar a full roundness develops. Until this point it was a good cigar but seemed to be on the flat side. The initial flavor on each puff is a toasty earth with pepper coming on quickly after that. The pepper then dissolves into a leathery finish. The finish doesn’t stick around long. It makes me want to hold the smoke and “swish” like one would with a fine wine.

I somehow get an impression of raisins. It doesn’t taste like raisins, rather, it tastes like it would be good with raisins.

 

With less than two inches to go the smoke begins to warm slightly. This warmth pronounces the pepper and makes the earth toasty. It isn’t hot but it is warmer.

 

The burn throughout is very good. There were a few uneven moments but they were nothing to fret about.
