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

10 Mar 2013



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.”

Given that it’s the St. Patrick’s Day season (apparently it’s a whole season now since I attended a St. Patrick’s Day parade last weekend), I fired up this limited release from last year. More so than any other Candela I’ve smoked, the wrapper isn’t just green, but a bright, shiny, almost kelly green hue. The cigar features roasted flavors with coffee, toast, and black pepper spice. It’s a pleasant cigar even if the balance is hurt somewhat by the grassy notes of the green wrapper. Still, you could do far worse if you want to smoke a candela-wrapped cigar for the St. Patty’s season, or for any other reason.

Verdict = Hold.
