Life has been a bit crazy lately so I’m kinda behind on my end with cigar reviews. However, I had a chance to fire up a cigar today that completely blew my mind. I intend on putting together a full review soon, but wanted to share some of my initial thoughts with you. The Viaje Oro is a dark rich looking cigars, with oils nearly dripping off the wrapper. The cigar was expertly rolled, I was unable to feel any hard or soft spots, and the triple cap was beautifully applied.
I fired the stick up and was immediately hit with a blast of flavors. Rich earthy flavors were nicely balanced by robust chocolate and espresso notes. There was a slight hint of pepper, however, it was not upfront spice like you may normally find in many Nicaraguan Puros. The cigar burned very nicely, and considering the windy conditions, the burn line never faultered. Copious amounts of smoke poured from the stick, and had almost a chewy texture. The Viaje was medium to full-bodied and hosted a variety of complex flavors. I’m looking forward to smoking more of these, and hope to get an official review up soon.
My preliminary recommendation is to pick up a fiver of these today I’m sure you’ll enjoy these even if you tend to smoke mild to medium bodied cigars. Although the cigar is full bodied, it’s not abusive to you palate or stomach.
