Amazing Cigar . Construction, flavor...an unique Cigar. One of the best experiences in my smoking life
5 Vegas is dedicated to making fine cigars. The Gold Churchill is a mild to medium strength smoke with short finish. Nice draw and construction.
What an expensive looking cigar! I like this 5 Vegas Churchill cigar. There is nothing really special about it. Its a really simple cigar but it aint bad. Actually, what I really like about it is its value. For only $2 this is a great gift to give to my friends! This is a mild cigar.... very friendly to the mouth and tongue. It doesnt have a fancy taste the like other cigars but I find it just fine. Its has an easy draw. The mild taste is defined by both hints of nuts and pepper at the beginning of the smoke. Then the smooth and creamy kicks in. From there, the smoke eventually builds itself fans of mild to medium-bodied smoke will surely love. A superb mild-medium smoke, comparable to the Macanudo Gold at almost half the price. Not perfect-looking but makes up for it in taste thats good right out of the box. Spicy-salty-toasty, excellent value for the cost. There are no apparent weaknesses that the stick possesses. The subtle hints of spice and cream at first pew puffs pass through nicely. Not to mention, the elegant band and wrapper make up for an attractive appearance that will impress your inexperienced cigar smoking friends. Taking into consideration its affordable, the Churchill is one solid-as-**** smoke.
Im very partial to Churchills. I have the time. So why not. Robustos feel like an appetizer. But the trick is that the smaller stogies usually taste better and quicker. Their sweet spot hits almost immediately. While the Churchill builds to it slowly and with anticipation. The construction on this one is nice. Its a firm cigar.But a little light in the hand. Doesnt feel tightly packed. Of course the upside to this is that it smokes easily. Im not a big torpedo fan because I have the worst luck and end up using my cigar ice pick to open it up to let the air through. The start is mostly of wood and cedar. There is a slight sweet taste. About 1 in, I get some subtle white pepper. Thats good. My senses tell me its a solid medium body at this point. But if it progresses like this, its going to hit the full body mark. At the 2/3 mark, it opens up and I get a panoply of flavors.This is turning out to be a more complex cigar than the smaller ones. I like the smaller ones because while they may not be as complex, they have a nice combination of consistent spice and cream. I can live with that. The cream fills my maw. And the spice level raises. The wait is becoming worth it. Around the last third, its a full on freight train in body. Besides the sweetness, spice, creaminess, and cedar flavors, Im getting a dried fruit on the aftertaste. I cant pin point it. Usually, I can, but not now. Its a dark fruit, like black currants, maybe. The flavor profile is extremely consistent right to the end. It never gets harsh or hot. Of course, the key to that also lays with the smoker. If you smoke it too quickly, you pull the tar to the end of the stick. I smoke about once a minute once I get to the halfway point. That usually eliminates any chance of harshness or bitterness. This was an 85 minute smoke for me. I sipped bottled water. I give this an 88.
