5 Vegas Classic
But the aptly named 5 Vegas Classic cigars hail from an era when 5 Vegas was still in the hands of Kiki and friends. Let's get up close and personal with this classic and see what drives its long-lasting success.
At the core of this cigar is a Cuban-seed long-filler blend of Nicaraguan Habano and Dominican tobaccos. Surrounding this mix is a Nicaraguan binder and a dark oiled-out flavor-packed Sumatra wrapper. This leaf is gorgeous with few veins. The overall construction of 5 Vegas Classic cigars is excellent.
Once lit, tobacco flavors are the first to arrive, along with a bit of spice and toast. The smoke output is impressive and relaxing. We smoke a little further down, and the spice is still there, though not revving up as we expected. Cocoa, nuts, and coffee notes are now quite prominent. As things come to a close, the spice refuses to die, and the coffee and nuts are going strong.
All in all, a fantastic cigar that we were sad to see come to an end.
Please enjoy 5 Vegas Classic cigars at your leisure.
