This brand originated in 1964 in the Canary Island, but production was moved to the Dominican Republic in 1982. Masterfully blended by hand and made with care in the Dominican Republic with a light brown, smooth Connecticut shade wrapper, Dominican binder, and assorted long fillers, the Don Diego cigar is a wonderfully aromatic mild to medium bodied cigar.
The PlayBoy brand was introduced in 1996 named for the Playboy magazine, produced in cooperation with Consolidated Cigar Company in its La Romana factory. The blend is medium in body and features a dark shade of Connecticut wrapper. The cigars are presented in elegant wooden box, while the Leroy Nieman Selection offers a special Nieman artwork onthe inside of just 5,000 boxes; a select number havebeen signed by the artist.
Even though its makers keep the secret of their Cuban-seed wrapper under lock, we do know the strand used for this cigar is a Cuban-seed grown in the Dominican Republic. This special strand is grown exclusively for Manuel Quesada. So you can be sure you will be in for a real treat with this cigar!
The appearance of this cigar is really eye catching; it flaunts a really tasteful label that looks really vivid against the chocolate brown wrapper of the cigar. The cigar emanates a really sweet and pleasant smell; it was easy to cut and light.
This is a very solid cigar. It’s very obvious it’s a handmade work; the uneven mottled pack is a dead giveaway. The veins are practically minimal and the wrapper was a bit oily; smooth to the touch.
This cigar offers a really rich mix of flavours; during the first few draws I could sense a pleasant coffee flavour, with strong cinnamon undertones. I’d say those two flavours were dominant until the midpoint; that’s when an overwhelming (but pleasant) chocolate flavour entered the mix. Towards the end the pepper flavour joined in, the chocolate and coffee flavours were still present until the end.
Great value considering the quality! By buying this you can rest assured you are getting real value for your money.
This stick has a really good price and is ideal for all those who are into full bodied cigars. It offers a premium quality for a really good price, if you are into 5 Vegas cigars, I’m sure 5 Vegas Relic won’t let you down.
Origin: Dominican Republic Format: Perfecto Size: 5.7 x 54 Wrapper: Dominican Corojo Filler: Dominican Long-Leaf Ligero and a single leaf of 12 year aged Dominican Binder: Dominican Hand-Made
The 5 Vegas company releases a limited edition of very exclusive cigars every year, they like to tag them with the word ‘’Limitada’’, which is a clear reference to the fact those cigars are a limited edition. It’s important to note the flavours are never the same; each year the company uses a different blend of materials, giving as a result a brand new product.
The appearance of this limited edition cigar is quite sober; it is quite sober if compared to other 5 Vegas cigars of minor price. But all in all it’s a very robust cigar; it comes with a really dark brown wrapper and a modest label.
The 5 Vegas Limitada 2008 is a well built cigar, a really robust one, I didn’t really notice any kind of soft spots. It’s a solid cigar, your biggest worry when smoking it is how long you can wait before having another one. It’s also worth to mention that both the burn line and the draw were excellent.
This cigar offers a really rich mix of flavours that emerge with each draw. Upon the first few draws I experienced what could be described as a very pleasant ‘’pepper explosion’’ all over my palate. Soft notes of leather and coffee were noticed as well. During the first and final third of the cigar a nutty flavour was apparent.
It definitely is worth the price. If you manage to find them, make sure to only share them with your closest friends, because you will want to keep most of them for yourself.
Today I’m going to talk about a cigar that made such an impression on me the other day. Last Saturday I got to try the 5 Vegas Cask Strength Firkin and boy was I impressed! This fine cigar comes in a very picturesque wood cask barrel. Same goes for the design, specially the labels; which makes it not only a pleasure to smoke it but also to look at it.
The first thing that caught my eye was the beautifully designed label; it’s a mix of very modern and at the same time very traditional elements that really make the label stand out. As for the colour, I could easily describe it as a dark shade of chocolate brown, it also comes with double rings (they make it look even more sophisticated). Some veins can be seen, the cigar is obviously perfectly box pressed; I’d describe the shape as square with sharp edges.
This stick is very tightly packed, which concerned me a bit at first, but surprisingly enough it was very easy to light; the draw was excellent. This is obviously a very well built cigar. The burn was very uneven, even worst once it reached the soft spot, but all in all it was a good smoke.
The 5 Vegas Cask Strength Firkin is a very flavourful cigar, from the beginning until the end. During the first few draws I could perceive several flavours, including: pepper, sweet cedar, earth and leather. A few draws later I could perceive other two favours as well: chocolate and coffee.
It might be a bit pricey, but this full flavoured cigar is worth it. I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a full flavoured cigar.
The image of Francisco Fonseca, who developed this brand in 1906, still adorns the box today. The brand features five, hand rolled sizes. Only in limited distribution, these cigars are always available in Spain. Fonseca brand is considered to exhibit a rich but mild flavour. Highly recommend for beginners, Fonseca No 1 probably is the softest habanos Lonsdales. A white paper covers each cigar, according its delicate taste.
