5 Vegas Limitada 2008  -- 7 years old

I purchased a 5-pack of this cigar in December 2008, smoked the next-to-last one 29 months later... now I pulled the fifth and final one out of the Lost Sticks Tray after 6 1/2 years.  It had improved greatly with age.  The wrapper was a very shiny, glossy mottled brown with a light smattering of tooth all up and down the shaft.  Strong prelight grassy aromas.  The flavor had deepened to a rich maduro-like spice.  It was strong on the front tip of the tongue, but the smoke hit the  back of the throat  with mellow resonant earth tones.  Highly enjoyable paired with Citadelle Gin over ice on the first hot day of summer.
