5 Vegas cigar samplers are packed with a flavorful array of Nicaraguan and Honduran tobacco that always hits the spot and never breaks the bank. Usually sitting somewhere right around $5 per cigar, 5 Vegas cigar samplers offer a value that’s been a favorite of cigar smokers for years and years.
In a world of premium, luxury cigars that have you looking up your credit limit, 5 Vegas is down to earth, giving you a high-quality cigar at a fair price. Let’s be honest, anyone who wants super cheap cigars is probably headed down to the gas station. But when you want a solid bump up in quality and a “real cigar,” this is a great brand to choose.
Who Makes 5 Vegas Cigars?
5 Vegas (originally pronounced “Cinco Vegas” by the company founder) cigars are mainly made by the Plasencia family out of facilities in Honduras. The blends aren’t just Honduran tobacco, of course. There’s a ton of rich Nicaraguan, Ecuadorian, and even Costa Rican leaf that has been selected for the cigars.
For the curious, the brand was originally started by Cuban-born Henry "Kiki" Berger and four friends as part of their World Cigars company that was headquartered in Nicaragua. Over time, the brand ultimately was entrusted to the incredibly reliable Plasencia family, who are the largest growers of tobacco in Nicaragua and maybe the largest growers of cigar tobacco in the world.
They know their stuff, and they know just what to put in 5 Vegas cigar samplers.
Let’s cover some of the most popular 5 Vegas cigars to find in samplers.
5 Vegas Classic
There are a few 5 Vegas blends that are often found in 5 Vegas cigar samplers. One of the most popular blends is the 5 Vegas Classic (aka “5 Vegas Red Label”). This is the blend that kicked things off and originally helped 5 Vegas get a foothold in the cigar industry.
The long-filler blend is Nicaraguan Habano and Dominican tobacco. Around that is a dark and oily Sumatra wrapper leaf. The flavors have always been a hit, with toast, coffee, nuts, and spice combining for a delicious experience.
The 5 Vegas Classic is the quintessential cigar that pops a nice 90 rating every few years to stay in the game and demonstrate reliable quality. It’s a medium-strength cigar that you can find in our 5 Vegas Classic Mega-Sampler (which contains the Classic blend in Churchill, Double Corona, Torpedo, and Robusto) if you want a cost-effective way to enjoy it in a variety of sizes and shapes.
5 Vegas Gold
The 5 Vegas Gold blend is smoother and richer than the classic. This one uses an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper around Honduran and Nicaraguan long-fillers. It’s nutty, peppery, lush, and creamy all at once. This is the go-to in 5 Vegas cigar samplers that are trying to show the milder side of the brand, and it’s a great entry point for newer smokers who want great value.
5 Vegas Series A
The 5 Vegas Series A blend uses a really nicely developed Costa Rican Maduro wrapper. It comes in a cedar sleeve and stands out from other 5 Vegas offerings, which fits the bill. A 3-country blend of 4-year aged tobaccos is inside, marking this as one of the company’s finer blends. This one took time to create, and the stick is a medium-full strength bouquet of spice and coffee flavors. 5 Vegas Cigars samplers that are assembled for smokers who have refined palates generally will include this blend.
5 Vegas Cask Strength
The 5 Vegas Cask Strength cigar is a pretty inspired stogie, born from the idea that a cigar could be created that mimics cask strength liquor. That is a cigar that is undiluted, with increased potency and flavor for real stogie fans.
The blending team has hit the mark pretty well, creating a medium-full strength cigar with a Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper covering Nicaraguan and Honduran long-filler tobacco leaves. When not part of a 5 Vegas cigar sampler, this blend comes in a cigar-sized cask that just looks great on your table. The flavors of oak, earth, and spices make this one pretty memorable. Between the Cask Strength and Series A, you’ll be able to experience the premium side of 5 Vegas.
