Let me first start off by saying the name is badass, Honey and Hand Grenades.  Upon first seeing this stick I read the name and could only imagine what the flavor must be like, a sweetness like honey followed by the explosion of the hand grenade part, for the most part, I was right.  This cigar was released almost a year ago in September 2012.  The Viaje Honey and Hand Grenades is a limited release with only 300 boxes of 25 cigars being released for each size.

The appearance of this cigar is just cool.  The cigar is a perfecto shaped cigar that features a white and black band with the image of a honeybee that has a  body that looks like a grenade.  The cigar is wrapped immediately under the band to the foot in red foil.  The cigar itself sports a dark brown wrapper with minimal veining and a slight oily sheen.

Flavor wise this cigar was very enjoyable.  Upon lighting the Viaje Honey and Hand Grenades you are greeted with some very pleasant cocoa, wood notes, and a sweetness.  While smoking this cigar also picks up some pepper notes as well as a slight bit of leather.

Burn on this cigar was damn near perfect requiring no touch ups.  The ash held somewhat firm falling about every quarter of the cigar.  Smoke was full and white.

Buy it again?  Probably, it is a very good cigar with some great flavors.  I personally am not that big a fan of peppery cigars, but this one was not overpowering.  Finding it will be the biggest issue since it is a limited release.
