On Thursday morning, Viaje announced the four retailers who will be receiving the 2013 edition of the Exclusivo Chiquito, a cigar made once every two years. The announcement came via the company’s Facebook page, and the retailers have been invoiced for the cigars, meaning they should be shipping soon.

News of the cigar’s return was reported in early March, as it was learned that the 4 7/8 x 51 Figurado would be limited to 100 boxes, though split between four retailers as opposed to being split between just two as in previous years. The pricing appears to have gone up slightly, as Riverside Cigar Shop tweeted that they were selling them for $219 a box, plus shipping. The 2011 edition had an MSRP of $212.50 for the 25-count box.
The 2011 Viaje Exclusivo Chiquito was reviewed on halfwheel here. This is the first edition of the Exclusivo Chiquito not to be sold at Tower Pipes & Cigars in Sacramento, Calif., as they were chosen for both of the first two releases.
