Zombies and cigars?  Is the end of the world coming or something?  No, don’t worry.  The Viaje Zombie Super Shot is just one cigar we are reviewing here today on  Following it up will be the La Finca Joyas review.

Viaje Zombie Super Shot

To say that the Zombie Super Shot from Viaje is a rather odd concept for a cigar would be an understatement.  After all, what on earth do zombies have to do with stogies?  Well, here’s an explanation.  Apparently, Viaje’s Andre Farkas has some B-movie script where his powerful cigars wreaked radioactive terror on the general population, causing most humans to turn into flesh-eating zombies.  Yeah, that’s definitely out there, but at least it’s original.  Now if you are a fan of the Viaje brand, you’ll probably notice that this particular release is a mash-up of the previously release Zombie and Super Shot cigars.  As for its packaging, the Zombie Super Shot’s box was made to look like something that would contain shotgun shells, and even the cigar itself looks like ammo in terms of its size.  With all of that out of the way, let’s jump into the review of this 2013 release.

The Viaje Zombie Super Shot measures 3 ½ x 54.  It’s made up of all Nicaraguan tobaccos and is highlighted by a Criollo ’98 wrapper.  The Zombie Super Shot is listed as being full-bodied in strength.

Looking at the Viaje Zombie Super Shot, it definitely has the shape of a shotgun shell.  It’s short and stout, and you won’t find any decorative bands adorning its body.  So in terms of presentation, you could say it’s as plain as can be (minus the whole “shotgun shell” themed box, of course.  The cigar has a dark brown wrapper with a few minor veins.  It feels firm to the touch and has a decent amount of weight to it, despite its short stature.  The oily wrapper looks good under light and the triple cap appears to be done to perfection.  Before lighting, there’s a sweet flavor and a chocolaty aroma that have me dying to light it up.

In terms of burn, I couldn’t ask for a better one from the Zombie Super Shot.  There are no issues to report whatsoever.  The draw is great and there’s plenty of smoke that comes from this little beast.  The gray ash stays solid too.  No re-lights or touch-ups are needed at all.  Smoking time is just a tad bit more than an hour long.
