This little stick was sent to me by Walt White from the Stogie Review as part of a prize for a contest I won over there. After taking the target out of the cellophane, I noticed a light barnyard-like smell, with a sweet sugar like aroma at the foot. She was packed evenly from cap to foot, slightly springy to the touch. After cutting I found the draw to be slightly looser than I liked, but not annoying in the slightest. After evenly toasting and lighting her up, I tasted some slight spice, and a little bit of a nutty flavor. Approaching halfway, the cigar remained in the mild body range, and had one of the creamiest smoke’s I’ve ever tasted; she continued on like this until I was forced to put her out. Overall, I enjoyed this smoke very much.
Recommendation: If you enjoy milder smokes with a little spice and creaminess, definitely give this one a try.

My Review of the 5 Vegas Gold Robusto
While the 5 Vegas Gold is mild when compared to a lot of the Naturals or Maduros out there, it is definitely not short on flavor. This cigar is usually touted as a mild smoke and I can tell why, but I think it is closer to a medium bodied smoke. This cigar is full of flavor yet it doesn’t sit heavy on your palette. This would make a great everyday smoke. There is no break-in period with this stick. From the second you light it you get a tasty yet mellow draw. It burns near perfect and you can smoke it to the nub without it getting overly harsh. It creates plenty of thick smoke and the ash holds firm. I had about 2 inches of ash before my first tap and then I only tapped it because I was nervous about getting ash on my friend’s nice poker table. It didn’t fall off; I had to knock it off. This was the 3rd in a fiver I picked up on C-Bid. I can say after three of these suckers, that it is a good consistent smoke, and it isn’t too hard on the ‘ole wallet either.

The 5 Vegas Gold is one of my favorite mild cigars. And you really can’t beat the price. A definite buy.
