5 Vegas AAA (2013) Cigar Review

This 6×54 stick features a dark chocolate firm, oily toothy wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, double cap and a faint peppery damp earth aroma. First light reveals a slightly loose draw with plenty of rich medium-full smoke output showing flavors of a dry coffee and earth with a bit of pepper coming through the long finish. The first third smooths everything out giving a creamy texture, tiny bit of sweetness to the earth on the draw and adding an oily slick left on the lips. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 40 minutes the 2nd third gets even smoother and creamier taking out much of the pepper leaving a lingering dark roasted coffee through the finish, still at a near full body. Ending at 1:10 minutes where the nub got very hot, the last third just brought in a medium strength to the mix. Thank you very much to Joe Canez for sending in this sample!

    I have always been hesitant about 5Vegas because how much CI displays them. I had a gold and it was ok.

    MMM I love most of AJ Fernandez’s stuff. My favorite blender at the moment. Great review.

    I have really enjoyed the robusto vitola of this cigar. I didn’t realize that it was available in any other sizes. I searched all of the major online retailers and was unable to find it in any size other than robusto. After talking to my sales rep at cigar.com I found out that the size reviewed is only available in a combo pack. Cigar.com does have this cigar in a 6.25″ x 52 torpedo. Needless to say I ordered a ten pack since I prefer smaller ring gauges!

    I guess I should have watched the video before making my previous comment. As I said the size reviewed is only available in a sampler. The torpedo is not listed on the site, my salesperson told me about this size being available.

    I’ll have to pull one of these out to try again. The first one was a lot of spice / pepper which is not my favorite. I like the plain “A” better.

    I can’t remember where I got them but I have some of these in lancero. I’ll send you one with my next lottery entry.

    Bryan, I just won an AJ Fernandez Choice Cuts 54 ring sampler from cigarbid.com. The 5 Vegas AAA is in the sampler and it’s listed as a 6×54. Actually all 10 cigars in the sampler are advertised as 6×54. Here’s some of the wording in the sampler description: “Never before has such a stunning selection of Abdel-made premiums been put together, so a special 6″x54 Toro size was created to celebrate.” So, there you have it. Great reviews by the way! :)
