Quick Cigar Review: Viaje | Skull and Bones The Hulk Score 90%

Quick Cigar Review: Viaje | Skull and Bones The Hulk

There’s almost a sneaky level of nicotine that keeps building slowly the entire time. It wasn’t enough to make me dizzy but I could feel that warm sensation in my stomach. The burn was pretty good but it was slightly wavy the entire time but I didn’t need to touch up or relight it at any point so it had that going for it. The draw was snug but the smoke output was ample and had a creamy mouthfeel. There’s not a crazy amount of flavors that will keep you guessing but the experience that it provides is very solid and almost the classic Nicaraguan experience I look for in this style.

Blind Cigar Review: Gurkha | Cellar Reserve 15 Year Toro

“Overall this was a decent flavor profile.. for nearly the whole stick. Even draws and bad burn knocked this stick down points even more as it caused an unpleasant smoking experience; at least it didn’t blow up. I’d have to sample another before making an ultimate decision on whether or not to put it in my naughty or nice list. ” -John A. (Bostoneo)

Blind Cigar Review: Camacho | Coyolar Super Toro

“I really like this cigar and the complexity of flavors that I experienced. There was more progression and favor than I originally expected and the cigar kept me interested all the way through. I’d smoke it again and would pair it with a nice cup of smooth medium roasted cold brew. Nicely done!” -Diana (ArmyRN)

Blind Cigar Review: Drew Estate | Liga Privada 10 – Year Aniversario Toro

“This was a really nice practically full bodied cigar with rich flavors and enough nicotine to show you who’s boss… That being said, the flavors were not something to destroy my palate and the finish was short enough that I could have smoked another cigar and still been able to enjoy it. I’m ready to purchase a few of these to keep on hand.” -Jason H. (Jokey Smurf)

Quick Cigar Review: Viaje | Zombie Super Shot 2019

I think this is the best of the shotgun shell series. The profile changes throughout kept it super engaging and I was always trying to figure out the flavors that were coming through. The burn was very sharp, the smoke output was great but I would have liked a slightly chewier smoke, and how slow it burned was super impressive. Like a lot of Viaje exclusives they’re hard to find but this one is certainly worth seeking out.

Blind Cigar Review: Room 101 | Master Collection Two Roxxo

“I really enjoyed this cigar and would very much so enjoy to be able to experience this premium cigar offering again. While not being the most complex cigar it provided great flavors throughout. The retro was where this blend is at with the pepper, cream, cedar and floral notes. Finish was clean AF. The petite robusto vitola is a favorite of mine and would work great in colder climates. Pick up this cigar and smoke it because Momma always said, “what is here today could be gone tomorrow.” Applause.” -Matt C. (Big Matt)

Blind Cigar Review: Tatuaje | Black Label Petite Lancero

“The flavors had a few transitions, and those flavors were good, but nothing exceptional. I could see this being something to reach for when in the mood for that woody/char experience. If others experienced a better draw, then I could see this being something to smoke on occasion.” -Aaron (aaron7

Blind Cigar Review: Roberto P. Duran | Signature Line La Punta

“This was a great cigar! I would like to keep a few on hand at all times to enjoy. Something that was interesting about this cigar was that it didn’t seem to want to go out or end. I smoked it for a long time and every time I looked at it there was very little of it gone. I enjoyed every minute of it.” -Paul (pmr1010)

Blind Cigar Review: Camacho | Criollo Robusto

“I would definitely buy this if it was priced right. Aside from the smoke being dry, I enjoyed it from start to finish. There was never a bitter note in the lineup of many interesting flavors. The progression continued as I smoked and the flavors added to each other, never taking away from the rest. I stored this cigar at 67% for the time it was in my possession.” -Paul (pmr1010)

Blind Cigar Review: King Havano Criollo | Torpedo

“The lighter flavors of the first two thirds were just the ticket for a hot humid afternoon while the bolder flavors at the end gave the cigar a nice finish. I appreciate that this stick stayed true to it’s flavor profile while adding enough variation to keep it interesting.” -Gregg (McGreggor57)
