Despite the pomp and circumstance surrounding full-bodied, powerhouse cigars these days, smooth cigars still rule.
Without a doubt, the uber-popular 5 Vegas Gold is the perfect example.
This gorgeous creature is crafted by industry legend Nestor Plasencia with extensively aged tobaccos, including a beautiful, almost shimmering Ecuador Connecticut wrapper leaf with a rich satiny texture.
Toast the foot and take a draw. You’ll see some spirit up front: a slight nutty taste followed by some zesty peppery notes on the back of the palate. A feisty sucker!
But instantly it mellows into a polished smoothness with ample creaminess. It stays utterly consistent from here on out, well-balanced with a sturdy creamy foundation, and booms out thick clouds.
Right around medium it is, not super-mellow, but just shy of a middleweight.
