5 Vegas Series 'A' is the stronger, more full-flavored side of 5 Vegas. Expertly crafted in Honduras, Series 'A' packs a lot of flavor into an economically priced cigar.
5 Vegas Series 'A' brings a fuller bodied maduro to the brand that has become one of the most popular cigars on the market. The Costa Rican Maduro wrapper found on 5 Vegas 'A' has been compared to the dark medio tiempo wrapper found on the famous Partagas Black Label.
This robust cigar is big on flavor and light on the wallet making it perfect for the everyday smoker and novice alike. It provides the perfect balance between body and flavor and will smoke right down to the nub. The complexity of this medium to full-bodied blend comes from its three country filler, which has been aged for four years to give it a perfect balance. With a little more flavor then its original Red Label predecessor, this cigar delivers on the quality and value that smokers have come to expect from 5 Vegas.
Series ‘A’ is a classic stand by for me and one I often have in my humidor. Featuring a Costa Rican maduro wrapper, this stogie is very rich in the 5.5”x55 box-pressed frame, coming in with a nice light sweetness and notes of coffee and chocolate with a good bit of creaminess. All to boot with a pretty-looking price tag, this one is a must-try.
Alpha (6.0"x52) Robust during the first 2 inches, but mellows to become richer in flavor towards the band. Produced many hints of pepper, which blended well with the chocolaty aftertaste. Also offered an easy draw, slow burn, and thick smoke.
Artisan (5.0"x52) Great size. Well blended and extremely complex offering nuances of earth, peat, and cocoa. The initial light was not as robust as the other sizes but the cigar still changed in flavor from inch to inch. Toothy wrapper that burned evenly and slow all the way to the nub.
Anomaly (4.5" x 44) A spicy, 25-minute cigar. Offered the same complexities noticeable in the larger sizes, with added pepper, and burned evenly throughout.
Archetype (6.0"x50) Great draw. Again, the flavors were very robust towards the foot of the cigar and slightly mellowed towards the head. Noticed more peppery nuances over sweetness but the wrapper was cloaked in oil, which coated the palate. Cool burn.
Apostle (7.0"x50) Draw was a bit tight but still allowed all complexities to be enjoyed. Noticed few veins in the wrapper and this size burned slow, providing more than an hour of enjoyment. The sweet aftertaste was not as prominent.
