Magnificent from A to B.
Quite frankly, this has got to be one of the best handmades to ever land at CI, one that has nearly caused our cigar-crazed staff to come unhinged. Covered in a juicy Costa Rican maduro wrapper, it is breathtaking - like an ocean of dark chocolatey goodness - and will make you fumble, stumble and bumble for cutter and lighter. The toothy, dark wrapper in turn hugs a 3-country long-filler blend of 4-year-aged tobaccos, and the whole thing rests for 6 additional months after rolling.
5 Vegas Series 'A' delivers a panoply of robust, medium to full-bodied flavors, including subtle spices and coffee-like notes. The flavorful bouquet includes heavy doses of toasty earthiness served up in a rich but ultimately smooth fashion. The aftertaste is long and pleasant, featuring an enjoyable sweetness that relaxes your palate. The presentation is terrific: nestled inside an attractive, dark, Spanish cedar box, each cigar is handsomely dressed in cedar sleeves. Lastly, for just a few bucks per stick I will boldly state that this cigar may very well be the best bargain in the entire industry. If you are a fan of medium to full-bodied cigars, you owe it to yourself to pull the trigger on a box of ‘A’.
Note: The 'Apex' and 'Archetype' sizes both feature box-pressed cigars.
