Looking at the Limitada 2010, I have to say that it is an attractive cigar. It's not the most premium looking stick I've laid my eyes on when it comes to a limited edition, but it does pass the initial impression test. There are two decorative bands that help bring the cigar to life. The top band features the 5 Vegas Limitada label and logo, while the smaller one beneath it lists the year of 2010. The wrapper is medium brown with an oily sheen. There are a few small veins, but no major imperfections. Feeling the cigar denotes some firmness with zero soft spots. Prior to lighting, there's a barnyard aroma and a cold taste of pepper.

Once lit, the 5 Vegas Limitada 2010 burns well. The draw is easy and plenty of smoke is produced. The light gray ash is solid. The burn does get slightly uneven at times, so a few minor touch-ups are required. Nothing too drastic, however.

Flavor is where the Limitada 2010 seems to disappoint. In short, it's not complex. Some may even consider it to be somewhat dull and one-dimensional. The cigar kicks off with a burst of pepper that mixes with cocoa later on. The pepper is not overwhelming. The second third features more pepper, and I am really waiting for things to change up a bit. They do, as some sweetness comes into the equation. The final third is characterized by mostly leather. Transitions seem to be lacking, as does variety. Strength-wise, I'd call it more medium to full-bodied than an all-out powerhouse.

The 5 Vegas Limitada 2010 was a mixed bag. Sure, it looked good and had a nice burn, but where's the flavor? It wasn't bad, but I guess the Limitada moniker had me expecting more. In the end, it seemed to be more average than limited. The cigar never really awakened my senses or made me want more. It was simply “there.” A single falls in the range of $6 each, and the cigar also comes in boxes of 25. At that price, there are better options. Then again, if you are looking for a new full-bodied Nicaraguan puro or are a 5 Vegas fan that has yet to try the Limitada 2010, give it a shot. You may enjoy it more than I did.

The 5 Vegas Limitada 2010 earns a decent rating of three out of four stars.
