5 Vegas High Primings Robusto

5 Vegas decided to build off the initial success of its 5 Vegas Classic offering with the release of its new High Primings line. The High Primings name comes from the fact that the tobacco leaf used in its composition comes from the plant’s highest priming. What does this result in? In essence, the higher the leaf, the more sunlight and time it gets pre-harvest, which supplies the cigar with extra flavor and power. In other words, the High Primings is an amped up version of the 5 Vegas Classic.

For this review, I chose to smoke the 5 Vegas High Primings Robusto, which measures 5 x 50. 5 Vegas offers the line in these other sizes: the 5 1/2 x 44 Corona, 5 1/2 x 55 Box-Press, 6 x 48 Double Corona, 6 x 54 Torpedo, and the 7 x 52 Churchill. The cigar’s filler consists of Ligero tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. The binder is Nicaraguan Ligero, and a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper tops things off. As stated earlier, this is a stronger version of the 5 Vegas Classic, and it’s listed as being medium to full-bodied in strength.

Right off the bat, I am highly impressed by the 5 Vegas High Primings’ appearance. The red band near the head is bright and shows the 5 Vegas name and logo. Just beneath it is a red, white, and gold band that displays the High Primings name. The wrapper is reddish brown and has a nice oily sheen. The cigar is smooth in nature with a few very minor veins that are visible. As I give the High Primings Robusto a feel, I find zero soft spots. The pre-light aroma is of sweet cherry, while the cold taste is spicy.

The 5 Vegas High Primings Robusto lights with ease and exhibits a draw that is just right. There’s a nice volume of thick smoke as well. The burn does require just one touch-up, but no re-lights. The gray ash is very long.
