I haven't smoked cigars in a long time, but when I did, l like Dominicans better than the Cubans I could afford (in Canada). How do Nicaraguans compare with Dominicans?

Yes, Viajes are one of my cigars of choice. Excellent sticks out of Nicaragua.
Nicaraguan tobacco is my favorite. To my tastes they grow the most flavorful tobaccos in the world.
Favorite brands are: Viaje, Illusione, Warped, and Foundation.

I’ve only had a couple, but I could tell right away that I liked them better than GTO’s another small batch out of Nicaragua. It was more diverse in flavor. I am not all hip and up to date on the backstories or masterminds of cigars, but I think I can tell a good one.

I like them but they and the Illusione flavor profile do not favor me as well as Padron, My Father and Tats. Very high quality cigar though.

In general, Nicaraguan cigars are spicier and fuller in body and strength than Dominicans, though of course there are exceptions to the rule.

As for Viajes, I haven't smoked many. None of my local shops carry them which is the biggest reason I haven't tried more. I should, though.

Both Nicaraguan and Dominican cigars have their own place in my humidor! For a milder smoke Dominicans have proven to be better (Romeo y Julietta, Monte Christo etc...) while for a bolder smoke Nicaraguans rule (Examples Padron Limited editions, Oliva high ends, La Aroma de Cuba, etc)

Tatuaje Havana Cazadores are my new favorites though... Just picked up a box. Man, I cannot say enough good things about these sticks. Leaves me wanting another right away. Paired with an awesome homemade ginger beer... divinity on earth.
It's a wonderful size. The flavor delivery of a corona with some extra smoking duration. The Black Label has a Cazadores size too and it's excellent as well.

And don't worry about it becoming hard to find. As long as the line is available, the lonsdale sizes will be the last to come off the shelves. So you have a good chance of getting cigars with some age, too! Just a small perk of having good taste in vitolas.

Ain't no place I'd rather be
Tried some when they first came out. They had very poor construction and I received a box with heavily damaged cigars inside. Neither the retailer nor Viaje cigars agreed to make it right, so I've never bought another. They seem to focus on special/limited releases which at one time garnered quite a fervor. No clue whether they're still popular as folks in the (online) circles I run in ever seem to mention them. Then again, I'm much more of a Cuban/Dominican smoker and far less of a Niaraguan/Honduran guy.
