Quick Smoke: 5 Vegas Miami Petit Corona

2 Nov 2008

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

I thought the 5 Vegas Miami Churchill was an OK smoke when I reviewed it just over a year ago, so I was interested to try the blend in this Petit Corona format (4.5 x 55). The wrapper is a lovely brown color and free of veins, although with far less oil than many of Pepin’s other creations. After an initial burst of unpleasant bitterness, the cigar settled into nice a medium-full mix of leather, cedar, and burnt coffee. Construction is also a mixed bag. The draw is good and the ash impressively steady, especially considering the last quarter just before the ash seemed to burst at its seems as it pushed towards the head like some sort of slow-motion exploding cigar.

Verdict = Hold.
