The Viaje Trifecta Plata Lancero and the D'Crossier Golden Blend Aged 10 Years are a pair of recent releases, so keep reading to see if either is worth adding to your humidor.

Viaje Trifecta Plata Lancero

The Viaje Trifecta is a series of three distinct cigars in a Lancero format from the brand whose completion was basically confirmed in February.  Staying true to its name, the Trifecta is a cigar box that offers a total of 30 stogies divided amongst three blends.  The first two blends of the Trifecta come in the form of the Platino and the Oro, which are two of Viaje’s more popular lines.  The third, which I’ll be reviewing today, is the Viaje Plata.  What makes it stand out from other Viaje selections is the fact that it’s the first cigar from the brand that has been manufactured in sunny Miami, Florida.  The other two in the Trifecta, meanwhile, were produced in Honduras.  With all of that being said, I love me a good Lancero, and I know Viaje’s a solid brand, so I’m expecting big things out of this Plata Lancero I’m about to light up.

The Viaje Plata Lancero measures in at a sleek 7 ½ x 40.  While I can’t find much on the cigar’s composition in terms of extreme detail, I have discovered that it’s a Nicaraguan puro, so at least I know that its filler, binder, and wrapper all consist of tobacco from the fertile Central American nation.

As I look at the Plata Lancero, I’m most impressed by its long, classy format.  The Lancero shape really gives it an elegant appearance, and the nice pigtail cap is icing on the cake.  A silver band at the foot stands out, and there’s another band near the head that displays the Viaje name and logo along with some silver accents.  The cigar itself is medium-brown in color and has an oily, smooth wrapper.  Only a few minor veins are visible and there’s a slight give when the cigar is pressed.  Before lighting, I pick up a woody aroma, while the cold taste is sweet.

The Plata Lancero lights with the utmost of ease and gives me a nice, enjoyable draw.  The ash is strong and gray in color, and plenty of smoke is produced.  No touch-ups are needed, and the same holds true for re-lights.  All in all, I’d call this the perfect burn.
