5veggold The reviews we have on tap for you today should appeal to a wide audience. We have a mild Connecticut Shade cigar in the 5 Vegas Gold Robusto, and we also have a stronger Maduro wrapped cigar in the CAO La Traviata Maduro Divino. Both are quality smokes, and both are priced affordably.

5 Vegas Gold Robusto

Smooth and mild is the name of the game when it comes to the Gold line from 5 Vegas. Another appealing characteristic of the cigar is value and affordability. Cigar smoking is not exactly a cheap hobby, so if I can find a solid cigar for a low price it's a good day. Will the 5 Vegas Gold Robusto make my day? Let's light one up and see.

The 5 Vegas Gold Robusto measures 5 x 50. 5 Vegas also produces the line in these sizes: the 4 1/2 x 44 Nuggets, 5 1/2 x 55 Double Nickel, 6 x 50 Toro, 6 x 54 Torpedo, 6 x 60 Bullion, 7 x 50 Churchill, and 7 1/2 x 54 No. 1. The cigar's filler is made up of Nicaraguan Cuban Seed and Honduran Cuban Seed tobaccos that have been aged for at least five years. The binder is Honduran, and an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper finishes things off. As mentioned earlier, the 5 Vegas Gold line is anything but a powerhouse and is listed as being mild to medium-bodied in strength.

The first thing that comes to mind when looking at this Gold Robusto is just how shiny it is. The golden wrapper has a nice oily sheen and is very smooth. Its color is reminiscent of honey, and it's really inviting. There are a few minor veins that are noticeable, but that's it. The large decorative band near the head is a head turner, mostly due to its bright gold color scheme. It displays the 5 Vegas logo as well as the Gold moniker. Feeling the cigar reveals that it is well-packed with tobacco. There are zero soft spots or other major imperfections. Before lighting, the aroma is sweet and the cold taste is of mild pepper.

After being lit, the 5 Vegas Gold Robusto burns like a champ. The draw is just right and there's plenty of smoke. The ash is solid and has a nice light gray color. The burn never strays from being even. Re-lights or touch-ups are not necessary at all.
