After selling their two Cigar Inn stores in New York City to JR Cigar in June 2015, brothers Gus and Billy Fakih turned their attention to another cigar project: Artesano Del Tobaco and their own brand called Viva La Vida.

The Viva La Vida line is a Nicaraguan puro that uses a wrapper grown by A.J. Fernandez, which also produces and distributes the line. Fernández’s name also appears on the front of the boxes that the Viva La Vida line comes in, though not on the bands of the cigars. Instead, the Artesano Del Tobacco name appears on both the primary and secondary bands.

The cigar is a 5 x 56 robusto gordo, and comes in a paper-wrapped five pack of cigars priced at $58, which works out to $11.60 per cigar before taxes, though the cigars are not designed to be sold as singles.

Back on June 19, 2019 I reviewed the torpedo version. It rated at 96 and wound up at number 2 for the year.

Blend and origin:
Wrapper: Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua
Factory: Tabacalera AJ Fernandez Cigars de Nicaragua S.A.
