The C-4 is the companion to the Viaje TNT. Unlike the large bandless and flashy fuse tail of the TNT the C-4 is obviously made to be in the likeness of C-4. The C-4 is box pressed and the band is plain and says C-4 in a military spray-painted style. Both the TNT and C-4 are an explosive delight kick off the dog days of summer.
The initial draw of the Viaje C-4 had a strong toasty flavors . The first third had spice, toasty, and cedar flavors. This combination reminds me of just a classic well rounded smoke. Once into the very smooth second third the cigar began to take on light coffee tones, very light orange peel. The cedar also started to reside. In the final third spice came more into play and the ever present toasty flavor became stronger. The C-4 has a medium level of body throughout and is able to be smoke to the nub. The ash was gray and strong. The burn was very even and the draw was simply a joy. The Viaje C-4 has to be one of the pure toastiest cigars on the market and that in no way is a bad thing. This cigar is just a great well rounded cigar that everyone will enjoy.
