REVIEW NOTES

3.5/5* First time moved to TABSA & from shaggy to brush foot - added binder to filler on exposed 1” did improve performance over prior releases. Flavors are stronger, abit harsh, and high pepper retro until wrapper starts at 1”, then creamy, wood, cinnamon, milder pepper with med body. Flavors stay medium and pleasant while body becomes fuller. Red wine pairing made for nice contrast and brought out richness and earth more but blend remains more muted than most Viaje - perhaps a result of 5 years age or slight decrease in RG at 52 instead of 54 for 2018 & 2020 releases.
