Quick Smoke: Viaje WLP (St. Patrick’s Day 2012)

9 Dec 2012

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

Released just before St. Patrick’s Day earlier this year—it has been aging in my humidor since then—this Candela features a notable bright green wrapper, with a shiny appearance that is a stark contrast from most double claro wrappers, which tend to be dry and matte. The cigar has roast nut and coffee flavors, and a bit of intermittent black pepper spice. While feint, the vegetable, grassy quality that is characteristic of Candela wrappers is apparent. Still it’s an enjoyable, well-made cigar, even though I can’t help thinking the same blend with a traditional wrapper (or even without the wrapper) might be even better.

Verdict = Buy.

    I don't smoke allot of Viaje. Actually any for that matter. Seems that most of the reviews I see on Viaje are just mediocre. I might have to give them a try and decide for myself.
