5vegtriple The cigars on deck for today's reviews are both advertised as offering power and flavor. Do they deliver? Keep reading for more in-depth analysis of the 5 Vegas Triple-A and the Arganese ML3 Robusto.

5 Vegas Triple-A

Handmade in Nicaragua by AJ Fernandez, the 5 Vegas Triple-A seems to have quite the reputation. While some say its a powerhouse, others note its complexity and plethora of flavors. I'm a little torn on the whole powerhouse theme, but the complexity is appealing, so let's light one up and see how it goes...

The 5 Vegas Triple-A comes in just one vitola, a 5 x 56 Robusto Gordo. This vitola was supposedly chosen as the sole representative of the line for its ability to properly deliver the blend's complexity. Speaking of the blend, the filler consists of Cuban Seed Ligero tobaccos that come from only the best growing regions in Nicaragua. The binder is also Nicaraguan, and a Broadleaf Maduro wrapper completes the cigar. As mentioned in the introduction, the Triple-A is a powerful stick that falls into the full-bodied category of strength.

As I take a look at the 5 Vegas Triple-A, I am impressed and at the same time a bit intimidated. I guess the intimidation comes more from the descriptions and reviews of the cigar and its power, while the positive impression comes from its presentation. There are two bands that really catch the eye. The band near the head is quite large and displays the 5 Vegas logo. The band at the foot displays the Triple-A logo. Both bands have a black, gold, and white color scheme that looks great against the dark Maduro wrapper. Besides being dark, the wrapper is also oily. A few medium-sized veins are visible. The cigar feels firm to the touch and appears to have solid overall construction. The pre-light aroma and taste is spicy and gives a hint of the power that I will soon encounter.

Once lit, the 5 Vegas Triple-A burns like a charm. The draw is just right, and the white ash holds for more than an inch. The burn is even from start to finish. No re-lights or touch-ups are necessary, so the burn department definitely passes the test.
