viajeviaje 5th anniversary


viaje5th1Welcome back folks.  We have a couple of reviews today aimed at fans of Nicaraguan puros.  Let’s see what the Viaje 5th Anniversary and the Asylum Torpedo have to offer, shall we?

Viaje 5th Anniversary Perfecto

It’s not hard to guess what the Viaje 5th Anniversary was created for, as the company released it to celebrate five years in the cigar industry.  Like many other cigars that hit shelves this year, the 5th Anniversary was officially unveiled during the 2012 IPCPR show in Orlando.  Being that it is a commemorative cigar, it’s probably not likely that the Viaje 5th Anniversary will be a regular release.  Keeping that in mind, I decided to pick one up before they ran out, as I have enjoyed Viaje sticks in the past.

I am smoking a Viaje 5th Anniversary Perfecto for this review, which measures 6 1/4 x 52.  The box-pressed cigar is made in Honduras at the Fabrica de Tabacos Raices Cubanas and has a Nicaraguan filler, binder, and wrapper.  In other words, it’s a Nicaraguan puro.  The 5th Anniversary is said to be a bold smoke that is full-bodied in strength, so I made sure I had something to eat prior to lighting it up.

The Viaje 5th Anniversary Perfecto is not the flashiest cigar I have seen, but it does appear to sport solid construction.  The Perfecto shape looks to be done well and the chocolate brown wrapper looks to have some oil on its surface.  The box-press looks good as well.  I notice a few veins here and there, but no major imperfections worth noting.  The cigar has some give to it when pressed.  The pre-light aroma is a mix of spice and cedar, while the cold taste is of chocolate.

Once in action, the 5th Anniversary has a burn that is satisfactory for the most part.  The draw is good and there’s a decent amount of smoke.  The burn does seem as if it wants to get out of hand, but quickly corrects itself.  I end up needing only a couple of minor touch-ups.  The ash is dark gray and flaky in nature.
