5 Vegas Relic Perfecto Cigar Review

This 5.7×54 perfecto shaped stick features a firm but uneven mottled pack and apperance, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, with a slight hay and earth aroma.  First light reveals a huge spice blast with pepper zing, some sweetness, tobacco and oily earthiness, very full bodied at the first few puffs. The first third tones down the spice a bit, adding a black pepper zing especially on the sweet and oily finish, with a good bit of creamy textured and tasting earthy tobacco through the draw. 20 minutes in almost to the 2nd third the detriments of the perfecto shape start to play in, with it needing multiple draws to burn and smoke well, the whole stick by this point going soft and mushy all the way down past the band. 45 minutes in at the 1/2 way point I had to touch it up. Flavors were unchanged, body went down to medium. One of my big pet peeves is globs of glue on a band and this had one, tearing the wrapper open on removal. Ending at just over an hour the last bit burned wonky again and went completely mushy and warm, so I ended it a little early. Thank you very much to viewer Matt Gass for sending this sample in for review, I really appreciate it!
