Chances are you have come across the 5 Vegas Gold; you’ve probably even smoked one as it is considered one of the most popular smokes on the market, and for good reason. Not only perfect for any time of day, it’s super tasty. To commemorate this best seller, 5 Vegas paired up with the legendary Nick Perdomo, who is the mastermind behind Perdomo cigars, and created the 5 Vegas Gold Anniversary. This premium comes dressed in a satiny smooth Connecticut wrapper with a Nicaraguan binder and a well-aged blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers. With near flawless construction, this handmade lends rich yet smooth notes of creamy coffee, hazelnut, and a peppery finish. Mild like its counterpart, this smoke can be enjoyed any time of day, so our panel recommended paring with a coffee with cream.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
