This review is on the re-release of the Viaje Plantino Samurai no changes were made from the previous release of this cigar from 2010. Two cigars were smoked for this review. The 1st cigar was least to say lacking. That 1st cigar had soft spots and had predominant flavors of definite red pepper that was smooth and not over powering and barnyard. This flavor profile was not bad but the soft spots and terrible burn led me to believe that the 1st cigar must not have all the filler that was meant to there. Accounting for this and not at all expecting that form Viaje, I decided to smoke another hoping that was a fluke. Glad to say it was a fluke as the 2nd cigar was much better than the 1st and talking to others who have smoked this cigar they reported no construction or other issues with this cigar. So this review will be on the 2nd cigar. Lesson to be learned here though is that there are bad eggs that sometimes get passed quality inspection. This is not something unique to Viaje other companies have produced cigars that I like then after expecting that same cigar to be just as good as before and find it is plugged. So fear not this cigar when made right was very right. Read on for our review of the Viaje Plantino Samurai.

The 1st third of the Viaje Plantino Samurai had light red pepper, very light barnyard and a flavor of rye bread consisting the flavor profile. The finish featured light red pepper and rye bread. The draw was good and the burn was uneven. The ash was very light gray to dark gray areas. The 1st third had interesting flavors that composed a great flavor profile.
