5 Vegas advertises the Gold Robusto as being mild-bodied but full-flavored. That's not a combo you see all the time, so it's a promising premise. As far as whether or not it's true in this case, the 5 Vegas Gold Robusto does have some complexity and character. It kicks off with nuts and the mild pepper that was detected in the cold taste. The second third mellows out some and offers up a lot of creaminess and toast. The final third brings back the nutty flavor from before and also presents some hints of leather. Smooth? Absolutely. Complex? Not totally, but it was getting there.

What can I say about the 5 Vegas Gold Robusto? It didn't knock me off my feet in terms of being impressed, but I cannot complain either. It gave a nice first impression, had a great burn, and did offer some variety in the flavor department. What's most impressive about the cigar is its price tag. A single sells for around $3 each, and you can lower that average even more by picking up a pack of five or a box of 20. At that price, you can't be extremely picky. A pack of five would come in handy for your buddies on the golf course or during a poker game. You might also want to keep some around for when you want a mild smoke as a change of pace.

The 5 Vegas Gold Robusto earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

CAO La Traviata Maduro Divino

caolatravmad1

CAO released the Maduro version of its popular La Traviata line in an effort to capitalize off the original's success. The original La Traviata was a hit with cigar publications and fans alike, so I am looking forward to good things out of this Maduro Divino.

The La Traviata Maduro Divino measures 5 x 50. The cigar also comes in a 6 x 52 Radiante and a 7 x 54 Intrepido size. The overall interior composition of the Maduro line is the same as its original predecessor. The filler is a blend of Nicaraguan Pueblo Nuevo and Dominican tobaccos. The binder is of the Cameroon variety. Last, but not least, is the Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. In terms of strength, the La Traviata Maduro line is said to be medium to full-bodied.
