5 Vegas Relic

5 Vegas Relic
Tobacco: Dominican Republic puro
Size: 5.75 x 54 (perfecto)
Price:  $4.16

I picked up a 5-pack of 5 Vegas Relics in Feb 2012 along with another box purchase.  I aged them a year, then smoked them at odd times when I didn't have a lot of time (they burn fast) but wanted something very spicy.    They feature a toothy Corojo wrapper around a blend of Dominican-grown long-leaf ligeros combined (according to the website) with a single leaf of 12-year-old Dominican tobacco.  It features a medium body, but very strong in flavor.  This cigar tastes better than its stronger cousin (the Cask Strength) and is on par or perhaps even a little better than High Primings.

The perfecto shape is a little hard to get used to at first, and that's perhaps why I gravitate to the High Primings, plus these are a little more expensive, but it's worth it.
