5 Vegas Gold #1 Double Corona Cigar Review

A fast burner, this provided a fairly sweet, oily burn with a hint of nuts and a dry toasty finish. Pepper gave it a kick in the start, disappearing after the first half. Mild-medium bodied, great draw.

    As always, good review. Have you had any other 5 Vegas stuff, in particular the “A” or the Classic? Just wanted to get another opinion on it.

  • Thank you! Yes I have had others, and will be doing other 5 Vegas videos too. I like some more than others at this point. I’ll save all my comments for the videos.

    I recently picked up a box of these in toro size. For the price you really csnt beat these cigars for a good morning smoke. Also the rp r4’s…Great price for great cigars.

    I also have tried a couple toros. The second one was much better after I let it rest a couple more weeks. Nice construction and I really enjoyed the favors with my coffee, which is starting to become my favorite drink to pair with cigars besides water. I need to get more at their low prices plus its a good cigar to share with my buddies so I can have someone to smoke with.

    this is funny when i had first met my friend john, he always liked to drink coffee, and then one day as i went over his house i have this cigar for him to try out and hes stopped drinking so much coffee and started to buy more on these cigars aha was a good time!

    i ordered myself a good deal of hoyo de monterey excalibur and 5 vegas gold. 5 of each for a price of only 25 bucks. can’t wait to try these. (they look like a nice treat).

  • Daniel.A

    People always compare this stick to the rocky patel 1999 connecticut, but i think the rocky patel 1999 is way, way, way, better!!!!

    Although I love your old reviews (and especially this cigar), you can definitely see the growth and depth of content in your reviews Bryan. You have helped us ALL grow! Thanks and keep up the great work.

    I have been watching your youtube videos for a while but just signed up here – I am new to cigars and haven’t really developed my pallet yet – this is currently one of my favorites mainly because it is pretty mild and doesn’t leave a bad aftertaste.

  • BCamara

    I don’t know how to feel about this one. Luckily I have another sitting in the humidor, when the time is right I’ll light it up.

  • eric.hanson

    Considering I can get these for about $2 a stick, this is really a great buy! While it doesn’t have a lot of transitions or anything, it does have some really nice wood, creeam, and toast flavors all the way through. I also agree with you that it’s best to let these age at least 6 months after you get them so some of the harshness goes away.

  • Shovel

    im looking to try something thats a little creamier than what ive tried thus far. i really dont care for a lot of pepper taste in my cigars.

  • 91boz

    Tried these for the first time a few weeks ago. Excellent smoke with a lot of cream and nuts. These will be my new go to smokes.
