Quick Smoke: Viaje Late Harvest Hang Time 648 (2013)

17 Aug 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.”


Another limited edition from Viaje, Hang Time is a variation of the Late Harvest blend that uses a wrapper from a higher priming, which, according to Viaje, “allows for more time on the stalk resulting in a more intense smoking experience.” The outcome is a less earthy smoke than the Late Harves 648 (2012), which I’ve smoked quite a bit. The medium- to full-bodied profile features cool smoke with hints of black licorice, grass, and a tinge of metallic flavors. It’s well-constructed and interesting for sure, but at the price (about $9) I prefer the regular Late Harvest blend.

Verdict = Hold.

    Sorry but I gotta disagree I have smoked 3 of these and they have all been really good smokes! Didn't any metallic taste that you talk of. Paid 8.75 and thought it was worthy of the price. Thx
