Viaje Holiday Blend
Typically featuring a barber pole wrapper, you get two tobaccos in one right from the outset in the Viaje Holiday Blend Candy Cane cigar. For those who don’t know, a barber pole wrapper uses two different leaves in contrasting colors – usually one dark maduro and one light leaf – to make an effect that looks like a swirling barber pole.
While many Viaje cigars are Nicaraguan puros, Viaje Holiday Blend cigars often feature an interesting mix of tobaccos from a number of different nations. For example, the 2015 Candy Cane cigar used Brazilian arapiraca and Ecuadorian habano for the wrapper blend, and then had Dominican and Nicaraguan tobacco inside.
Viaje Holiday Blend cigars come in different shapes and sizes each year, but typically are on the manageable side. The Christmas Tree in particular was a real 4-inch runt, which reminded us of those years when you could only put a really tiny tree up and call it a day.
The flavors have been all across the board. We won’t even try to define these Viaje Holiday Blend cigars as a group. You’re often getting a really complex and enjoyable blend to light up on those starry winter nights as you contemplate another year gone by and what liquor is going to take you through the holiday season.
Whatever you celebrate, celebrate it with a special blend from Viaje. These are fun and festive smokes.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone!
