Viaje Late Harvest
In particular, in winemaking, you can get killer grapes by leaving them on the vine longer than usual. This helps them develop a higher sugar content for a sweeter wine if that’s what you’re brewing up. For tobacco, the idea is similar – if you take higher priming leaves off the stalk of the plant later, you can get a more potent leaf.
The highest priming of tobacco found at the top of the plant is known as Ligero. These leaves are at the foundation of the Viaje Late Harvest cigars. They get the most sun and as a result, become the strongest. You’ve probably heard of it referred to as the leaf mainly responsible for the potency of many popular cigar blends. In particular, cigars that are “Double Ligero” are ones that will sneak up on you fast. If you huff and puff, they’ll blow your house down.
For the Viaje Late Harvest cigars, company founder Andre Farkas chose all Nicaraguan tobacco, including some leaf that stayed on the stalk soaking in nutrients and growing big and strong for as long as possible. These Ligero leaves offer a fantastically rich smoking experience and a satisfying flavor profile.
Light up a Viaje Late Harvest cigar and you’ll get the flavors of sweet fig, mocha, and spiced nuts. It’s a truly interesting Nicaraguan puro cigar, and one for people who want to get good potency in their next smoke. That said, this blend doesn’t quite reach full strength when all of the leaves are combined. It’s more full flavor than full strength, at the end of the day. All things considered, it’s a great blend and one we thoroughly enjoy.
