Another day, another cigar by “Don” Pepin Garcia. Not that I’m complaining.
The 5 Vegas Miami cigar has an attractive, toothy wrapper and a spicy pre-light scent with hints of cocoa.
Once lit, the cigar had an even burn, a good draw and solid, dark-gray ash. It also gave off a ton of sweet smoke.
Verdict: It’s a good cigar that’s not complex. It tasted a little spicy, a little leathery, and not bad. If you don’t feel like shelling out for a stick from Garcia’s El Rey de los Habanos brand, reach for the 5 Vegas Miami.
Now, I smoked five of these things, and they were all consistently good. But some inconsistencies have been reported around the blogosphere. I didn’t experience any of that.
Similar cigars: It’s a slightly milder version of the Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic.
