Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique.  This one has been generously sponsored by our member ninfiction (Brian).  The cigar provided for this round is the Viaje Skull and Bones M?stery BP 2018.

There is not a lot know about this one but here is what was published by Halfwheel - "The star of the show is the Viaje Skull and Bones M?stery BP 2018, the first M?stery release since 2015. The company declined to disclose any further details about the cigar, but it’s listed as “BP” a likely sign that it is box-pressed.

This cigar was enjoyed with Sweet Tea

Pre-Light: 20 Points of 20 Possible

The cigar had a slight oily sheen to the cigar, with no noticeable thick veins in the leafs. The cigar didn't seem to have any soft or hard spots in the cigar. The pre light aroma was of dark chocolate and strong tobacco.

Light & Burn: 13 Points of 15 Possible

The burn was ok, it needed to be touched up a couple of times, but never went out or anything. The ash color was a grey, and the cigar burned fairly slow. It produced lots of thick almost chewy smoke.

Construction: 22 Points of 30 Possible

The construction from the outside looked great. It felt nice in the hand, and didn't seem to have any soft spots in it until I got to the last third. It became really soft and mushy on the head of the cigar, making it have a really loose and open draw making it get really hot.

Flavor: 27 Points of 35 Possible

I found the cigar to be a med-full cigar. It was fairly smooth with not much complexity.
The first third presented itself with some spice, as well as a chocolaty strong tobacco flavor. The spice was not overpowering. It was a very pleasant tasting cigar with not a ton of punch.
The second third was pretty much the same chocolaty tobacco without the spice, and a hint of caramel added in it.
The last third was the same flavors, but the head of the cigar got really squishy, and the draw got really loose and hot giving a little burn on the tongue.

Summary

Overall, this was a pretty good cigar. It is not very complex though, and pretty straight forward on the flavors 1/3 after 1/3 after 1/3. It smelled great pre-light, and throughout the smoke though. Give one a try and see what you think of it!
