This is another one of those Limited Edition dealies from Viaje.  It’s an odd shape really, closed at both ends.  I cut the foot a little before I light it.  First few puffs and it reminds me some of the Skull & Bones blend, but it seems to not have as much punch.

This super limited cigar is the second installment of the Viaje Skull and Bones Series.  The first release, the daisy Cutter, was a little 4 x 54 petite robusto.  This new release, which now will be released every Halloween does not have a name.  It is very limited, just 150 boxes of 25 cigars each were made.  I was lucky enough to get my hand on a few from my local, Empire Cigars.

Vitola: Robusto

Wrapper:  Nicaraguan Criollo

Origin: Nicaragua

This Viaje cigar is already available at my local, Empire Cigars (formerly Capital City Cigars).  I picked this up last night and smoked it.

Made in the same factory as the Joya de Nicaragua brand, Viaje is a boutique company that’s on the rise.  Read here for more info.

This is a rough looking cigar with a spongy feel.  The cap was placed on the head of the cigar, no triple cap here. 

At first light, there was a touch of bitterness and sourness that parted for a nice earthy and toasty smoke.  It looks like a powerhouse, but the cigar is actually on the mild-medium side.

This is not a complex cigar, but it definitely has an interesting aroma, that is heavier than the cigar itself.  It shows lots of potential, this may be a cigar to watch…
