Viaje Skull and Bones WMD

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
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua
Price: $9.95 

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.

Also I wanted to say I’m sorry for not replying to comments lately I just have been busy, also I planned on doing a video review this week since its spring break for me but my brother is in France and has the camera. So soon my friends sooooooonnn I will be putting up a video review can’t wait to hear what ya’ll have to say. Have a two great weeks and god bless you all.

  1. Nice Review Buck I haven’t had much Viaje stuff and the few i have had i wasn’t a fan of. there wasn’t anything bad just not worth the Money. Pile that on top of not being in the area means I wont be smoking many of these in the future. Can’t wait for your next video back… Do you need ot shave yet?

    Thank you for the review Mike! I agree with you and Corey. I have tried several of the Viand sticks and they all have been boring and one dimentional. I do not think they are bad but for the price, I would expect at least something that would make me say, “wow, this is nice.” Or, “this is interesting.” But I usually just say, “I paid how much for this?” Keep up the good work and can’t wait for a new video. Go Sabres!
