Quick Smoke: Viaje Skull and Bones Edición Limitada (Big Ivan)

30 Jun 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.”

Viaje-SkullBones-BigIvan

I’ve enjoyed some of the Viaje Skull and Bones blends in the past, so I picked up a few of this latest Edición Limitada version when it came out in February. The thick (5 x 60) stick is presumably an all-Nicaraguan blend, although I haven’t seen that formally confirmed. It features a leathery profile with plenty of red pepper spice. Not the full-bodied bomb that some other Skull and Bones releases are, Big Ivan is more medium- to full-bodied. Construction is good, but ultimately I like the smaller releases far better.

Verdict = Hold.
