It’s not a Honduran cigar, though. As the bulk of the Viaje portfolio, Viaje Platino cigars are Nicaraguan puros that use nothing but Nicaraguan tobacco. This includes the classic Corojo ’99 wrapper, which uses a Cuban seed that has been a popular wrapper leaf for ages. It’s got a wonderful spice kick that doesn’t go overboard and allows blenders to keep everything in balance.
The result for the Viaje Platino cigar is a flavor profile built around the campfire, baking spice, and cedar notes that are a pleasure to draw on from beginning to end. Viaje isn’t one of the huge cigar companies out there. In fact, most of their blends can still be thought of as boutique in the sense that they can come and go depending on growing seasons and Viaje needs its partners to raise tobacco and roll cigars. Viaje Platino cigars, however, are a reliable stogie that many have been picking up for years to puff on as a go-to favorite that never gets old. Like many of the best Nicaraguan cigars out there, this one is solid platinum.

Cigar Aficionado gave it an 88-point rating, dinging it for the lack of sweetness. We’re happy to smoke one that isn’t delivering that note, especially if we’re in the mood for those “Mid-Eastern” spices the judges noted.
