Viaje Fifty Fifty Red Label

IMG_3085

Released at the 2010 IPCPR in New Orleans the Viaje Fifty Fifty Red Label is the sophomore release by Andre Farkas and his Fifty Fifty series. During the 2009 IPCPR Andre released the first edition of the Fifty Fifty with the Black Label. The Fifty Fifty concept is in a nut shell two blends within one cigar. The Black Label had a drastic change from full to a fuller bodied cigar. Changing pace, the Red Label eases into the transition and lets the cigar build up to the change.

Some will disagree with me, but the Viaje Fifty Fifty Red Label is one of my Top 5 cigars coming out of this year’s IPCPR. I wasn’t a fan of the Black Label because of the abrupt transition. The Red Label is more my speed in body and flavor profile. While the transition from medium-full to full isn’t spontaneous like its predecessor, you can definitely detect the change in intensity where the bold flavor profile goes from really good to great.

  1. I love a cigar that changes as it progresses. It’s like an adventure, and when a cigar can hold your attention and let you know when it’s changing, that’s a really cool quality.I have yet to try Viaje, but I’ll make this my first try.

  2. Hey Jerry,

    Can I steal some of your pics for my website? LOL. Damn, mine didn’t come out nearly that good.

    Nice review, man.

    Try the Satori (yes, I carry them….), if you like the RL50/50, you should love those.

    Take care.

  3. Great review. I am curious with the full body aspect if you get the nicotine from it also or if it a non wavy head inducing smoke.

    P.S. You pointed to the wrong side of the screen for the pause button LOL

  4. Jerry, I have been lurking and finally felt compelled to post.

    1) As a grad student in Social Work, my budget is not huge. Hence, reviewers like you are critical. I would rather spend more and smoke less!

    2) Don’t you dare stop with the finger moves and pointing. It’s what makes you, YOU!

    The Man!

  5. Nice review Jerry. I actually just smoked one of these this evening at work. I really really liked it. I didn’t much care for the Black Label 50/50, but this one was absolutely fantastic.

    Keep it up.

  6. Damn it dude! It’s starting to seem as if ecerytime you do a review it costs me money. Great job! Keep ’em coming bro.

  7. Hey Jer, another gr8 review. So 50/50 v.s. Oro, which one do you think is better (in your expert opinion of course). Thanx … JJ23
