The Viaje Exclusivo Reserva is a cigar combines two concepts that Viaje has used in various lines over the past years. First up, the cigars are box-pressed versions of the Viaje Exclusivo blend. Secondly, the “Reserva” part involves uses tobaccos that have been aging additional time and then involves the resting the cigars for a longer period of time once aged. While this is not the first box pressed Viaje Exclusivo (The Viaje Tower Cigars 45th Anniversary release was box-pressed), it is the first time the Exclusivo is being done “Reserva style”.
I found this to be cigar that really shined around the midway point when some of the rich, natural tobacco sweetness takes center stage. As for the age of the tobacco, there were no signs of youngness. While citrus can sometimes be a sign of youngness. it was not the case with the Exclusivo Reserva Toro. In the end, this is a very good offering and worthy of a box split.
