Smoked the 5vegas cask tonight (sup fcuknu) and while it started off promising it turned real bland and tasted like I was smoking ash. Couldn't take it after about a half to two thirds no matter how hard I tried and put it out of its misery. To be fair I just received them and they were tightly wrapped in their cellophane 5 pack so perhaps some box time is in order. On the other hand the punch rothschild maduro I smoked last night was superb and at three dollars a stick from CI one of the best bang for the bucks out there more so than padrons imho. I think it's time I bought a box of these.
