Wrapper: Nicaraguan Corojo 99
Here are the two vitolas of the VPR blend. It is worth noting the original #6 is now a very difficult cigar to find and not one in regular production.
VPR No. 6: 6 x 50 (box-press)
VPR DT: 5 3/4 z 52 (double torpedo)
I smoked the double torpedo.
I really do like this blend, its got a nice crisp flavor that really shines. Even the regular Platino blend (now discontinued) has that same characteristic. The burn was a little tough on this one, kept going crooked and draw was snug. However, the flavors were really good. The spice on this seems to persist throughout, and I really enjoyed it. I do seem to have construction issues with the platino which get in the way of the flavor a bit, so for that fiver.
