The term 'cask strength' is a term single-malt scotch and malt whisky enthusiasts are familiar with. Cask strength refers to whiskies that are undiluted, usually creating a powerful bottling strength, high alcohol content, and ample character. That was the inspiration for 5 Vegas Cask-Strength and the blend lives up to the name....and then some.
Hailing from Esteli, the cigar-making capital of Nicaragua, 5 Vegas Cask-Strength will captivate you from the get-go. Dressed in a stunning, reddish-hued Corojo wrapper from Nicaragua - one that's dark and oozing with oils - this 6"x52 Toro is lovingly box-pressed for maximum flavor. Beneath this exquisite wrapper, a bold combination of aged ligeros from Nicaragua, Honduras, and beyond has been expertly blended. Cask-Strength opens with a feisty bouquet loaded with hearty spices. An eventful opening indeed - which prepares the palate for a deep series of oak, cedar, earth, and toast. Spicy throughout with a warm, toasty aroma, expect a full-bodied and full-flavored crescendo as you gradually approach the nub. Marvelous!
“Can't believe no one has commented yet on this great stick from 5 vegas (Name Brand 5-Pack Madness)....A full bodied smoke with lots of spice....great burn...I smoke em to the nub. Hope to see the 5 Vegas Cask Strengths in more then 5 packs soon. Thanks CI for the great service!”

“I was a little concerned when I read "cask strength"... worried I was going to be smoking a stick of oral dynamite. Glad I took the chance and bought a 5-er anyway. Very nice cigar. Full flavored, excellent draw and burn, and a consistent palate pleaser from beginning to end. Nice finish that doesn't get hot. I'll be ordering more.”

“One of my first cigars. It seemed pretty strong but it was good. Lasted just under 2 hours.”

“This cigar surprised me. Really full flavored, not in the overpowering sense, reminds me of the vintage La Gloria Cubana from the old days before the brand divided into multiple choices. I believe there is some Honduran tobacco there, which I find distinctive and very flavorful. Top notch construction, even burn, not suitable for smoking meat, but the easy draw yields plenty of smooth smoke.”

“They were a little wet when I got them but let them sit in humidor for while and they smoke perfectly.”
