5 Vegas Gold Maduro Robusto Cigar Review
This 5×50 stick features a very dark coal black thin fragile maduro wrapper with an oily slick firm pack, hand-rolled lumpiness, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and pungent manure aroma. First light reveals a good draw with plentiful medium bodied smoke output showing flavors of a rich smooth creamy chocolate and tobacco with a deep oily thick long finish. The first third changes slightly dropping the chocolate and producing a rich smooth earth with a metallic-like zing especially through the long oily finish. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 35 minutes, the first half showed no changes. Ending at the hour mark the last third brings back a sweet chocolate mixing with earth with just a minor wonky burn near the end but overall very good construction and rich flavorful smoke. Thank you very much to viewer Justin Hodges for sending this in for review!
