Quick Smoke: Viaje Holiday Blend 2013

11 Jan 2014



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.”

With its Nub-like dimensions, snowflake foil wrapper, and unembellished Christmas tree secondary band, the limited edition Viaje Holiday Blend 2013 will stand out in almost any humidor. It’s also a standout in the taste department. A small, fat torpedo (4 x 60) with all-Nicaraguan tobacco, this year’s Viaje holiday release is a complex, slow-burning delight. Flavors range from pepper and sweetness to leather and cedar. My only complaint: a less-than-stellar burn. It’s also a bit pricy at about $10. But it’s well worth picking up to give yourself a post-Christmas present.

Verdict = Buy.
