So far with these Viaje sticks I am batting 1 for 1 if you follow me you will know what I am talking about but for those of you who don’t I will tell you. I liked the Viaje Shot Gun Shell and loved it, but wasn’t fond of the Stuffed Turkey. Now today will be the deciding point for me on whether I spend my money on Viaje cigars again or not. Now back to the stick.
Size: 3.75 x 54
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Sun-Grown
I did this review in halves because of the short nature of this cigar. With my first few puffs I got an extreme hit of pepper, full pallet full. With an almost unbearable retrohale because it was so strong. But once you got over the overwhelming amount of spice you began to pick up on hints of leather and dark chocolate. But those didn’t last long. After about a third of the way through the stick you lost the dark chocolate and just had leather and spice.
Now to the second half, If you look carefully you can see I cut the head off and my foot is extremely toasted. This is because the FREAKING thing wouldn’t stop going out!!!!! Well the head I cut because I was getting a horrible draw but I believe that was my fault, didn’t have that problem the first two times I smoked this cigar though. Now back to the juicy stuff with the second half I experienced no change and was utterly disappointed. Just a full blast of pepper and leather not all that enjoyable when you are looking for a tasty cigar.
My batting average is now 1 for 2 not doing to well, I don’t think I will be smoking anymore Viaje cigars for a little while due to the fact that the price is way to high for such a bland and boring cigar.
