    Background Info

    This target has an internal gem of a single 12-year-old filler leaf. This “heart” was transplanted by Manuel Quesada 10 years ago from a bale of 1996 vintage tobacco leaf. A pacemaker with a soul of its own.

    Mission Notes

    Smooth Corojo wrapper, small veins. No patches or blemishes. Modeled a great deal after me! After beheading and befooting (?) I started the interrogation. Sometimes the least obvious characters give you the largest amounts of information. Robust, full flavored after-dinner enjoyment right here. White pepper, slight coffee, spicy richness. Great draw from this puro figurado! Nice evenly marbled and solid ash. Not much else to say… not much change throughout except for an increase in body.

    Final Statement

    I wasn’t sure what to expect from this cigar. I have had other 5 Vegas blends and had mixed opinions. I would pick this up again if I ever saw it at a shop. However, it is unfortunately forgettable.

    AGENT TIP # 31: If you bring the funk, don’t forget the flavor.
