Review Notes: I sell cigars in my store as a fun sideline. Every blend I've tried has been very smokable and has sold due to good quality/price ratios. Heretofore, I believe, 5 Vegas has went after the smoker who would like to smoke let's say Macanudos but is looking for something just about a third to a half less. The fact is that 5-Vegas is achieving that nicely. So what if there's a guy who'd love to smoke an even more top-notch super premium but would never do so regularly because of price? This is where I believe the Cask Strength is suppose to come in. The maker makes no bones about the desire you compare this to Opus X by Fuente. It makes a case that this is the only available alternative with the exact same combination Dominican wrapper with care being given to simulate the filler too. If the smokers was still not convinced then the maker was only too happy to reveal that they are made in the main La Aurora factory known for super premium smokes like it's namesake as well as Ashton. Sounds like exactly the type cigar we're all looking for...Right? So, does it deliver? Not 100%, I'll explain. First, it's too middle strength or even a bit less. Very pleasing, not bold however. Second, it's needs to impart more of a spicy earthy floral taste...bring that profile a bit more to the fore. Finally, it has to be avaiblable in more sizes as I am a firm believer that this has potential and should be tweaked and stroked into the greatness it is on the verge of. As it is I really lke it and if it could be made stronger with more of a taste identity with more sizes it may well be the one cigar I could love without reservations. Please Meier and Aurora...Continue to tweak this one as you or at the begining of greatness here.
