5 Vegas Gold Maduro – Cigar Review

5 Vegas Gold Maduro Box Pressed Robusto Review

This cigar’s broadleaf maduro wrapper is very dark and oily with only a couple of small veins.  Really nice looking wrapper on here.

It has a good spongy feel and the draw is just right after I used my punch on it.

It has a very pungent earthy, but also floral, smell.  I really enjoy the smell of this cigar.  I sat and smelled it for a couple of minutes before lighting it up.

I am impressed by the look, feel, and smell of this cigar – time to light up.

The first third features the classic sweet maduro flavor with a toasty and nutty core flavor.  It is producing a ton of medium bodied smoke.  The burn is a bit uneven, but the light gray ash holds on strong for over an inch.

The second third has a dry toasty taste with a sweet and spicy finish.  I also sensed a bit of jasmine in the sweetness that was very pleasing.  The burn stayed even after I made a quick correction to it.

The final third was very similar to the second.  The smoke remained dry and medium bodied.  The flavor was earthy and toasty with a slightly sweet and very spicy finish.

Overall, this will make a fantastic “yard ‘gar”.  The burn was a bit uneven for the first half of my samples, but that was the only construction flaw.  It is very affordable and has simple but very enjoyable flavor.  New to maduro leaf wrapped cigars?  Make this one your first, it offers all the great flavor of the maduro leaf but in medium body.  Smoke a lot of maduro cigars?  This one may be right for you too, the price is right and they are a reliable go to cigar.  I highly recommend giving this cigar a try.
