Viaje Super Shot 10 Gauge

Viaje recently released 3 new additions to their cigar lines: Winter Class (WLP), Friends and Family, Super Shot. The Super Shot is the cigar I’m reviewing today. Patterned after a shotgun shell (shotgun shells come in 3 sizes today: 2 3/4″, 3″ and 3 1/2″) and these cigars coming in at 3 1/2 x 54 ring gauge in boxes of 25 cigars. The boxes are patterned after Remington shotgun boxes from the 40s or 50s. A 12 gauge version will be released at the end of March that will be 3 1/2″ x 52. Viaje used all Nicaraguan tobacco for these cigars using the upper primings of the tobacco plant for the tobacco in the cigar. These get more sun so they are thicker and more oily. They also develop a richer flavor and more strength. Is this cigar a hit or a dud? Watch the video and find out.

Thanks for Mike Mando at The Cigar Shop in Biloxi, MS and Browning for their assistance in the review.

How would you rate this versus a Diesel Unlimited or the Unholy Cocktail? As a lover of full bodied cigars I will try the new Viaje based upon your recommendation.

Hey Gary,

I’ve never had the Diesel Unlimited, but I’m a big fan of the Unholy Cocktail. I think the Super Shot is a more fulled bodied version of the Unholy Cocktail, but they they have similar flavors. If you like the Diesel line, these would work very nicely for you.

Just got my hands on some super shots and wow, what a shot it is. They do burn really hot which slowed me down being a fast smoker. Loved the intensity of the cigar. Great review can’t wait for more.

Great review! I just got a box of these, can’t wait to try one. I’m a big fan of the Skull and Bones line. This is one of the better priced Viajes, which appeals to me a lot.
