5veggoldpic1 The weekend is nearly upon us, so what better way to kick it off than with a couple of cigar reviews. Today's review menu consists of the mild 5 Vegas Gold Maduro Robusto and the flavorful Tatuaje La Riqueza No. 5. With any luck, one of these will be good enough to encourage you to drive to your local B&M to try one out this weekend.

5 Vegas Gold Maduro Robusto

The Gold Maduro line from 5 Vegas was created to appease fans of smooth and mild cigars. 5 Vegas previously released the Gold line with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. Nestor Plasencia is the man behind the Gold Maduro's creation, so let's see if his expertise was successful in creating a smooth hit.

The 5 Vegas Gold Maduro measures 5 x 50 in its Robusto format. The line also offers the following sizes: the 5 ½ x 55 Brick, the 6 x 44 Corona, the 6 x 50 Toro, the 6 x 54 Belicoso, and the 7 x 48 Churchill. The cigar features a filler blend of aged tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua. The binder is also Nicaraguan, and a Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper tops things off. Strength-wise, the Gold Maduro Robusto is considered to be mild to medium-bodied.

The Gold Maduro Robusto has a very pleasing and enticing appearance. It looks like an expensive stick, even though that is not the case. The Pennsylvania Broadleaf wrapper is very dark and oily, and the cigar conjures up visions of dark chocolate. The wrapper feels a tad rough to the touch and has very few veins that are visible. Construction appears to be solid overall, and there are zero soft spots. The large band near the head is a nice touch. It displays the 5 Vegas Gold Maduro label and has a copper, gold, and black color scheme that really stands out over the dark wrapper. The pre-light aroma is of cocoa, and so is the cold taste.

Once in action, the burn is impressive. There are no touch-ups or re-lights needed, as the burn stays razor sharp until the very end. The draw is on the easy side, and a good amount of smoke is emitted. The ash is light gray in color and fairly solid.
