The Viaje Ghost Pepper is dead, but the peppers aren’t.
This year’s release in Viaje’s Pepper Series will be GP 10.31, a 4 7/8 x 50 perfecto made entirely of Nicaraguan tobacco with a “dark” corojo wrapper.
GHOSTS! – Keeping with the Halloween tradition, a special edition GHOST PEPPER will be shipped to all authorized Viaje retailers. The cigar features a new blend and very spooky packaging. Rather than ruin the surprise, we will keep the details shrouded in mystery until they land in your hands. Happy haunting!
Pricing is set at $8.80 and it will come in boxes of 25. A company spokesperson declined to discuss production details, but said it will ship to all authorized Viaje retailers.
In addition, that same spokesperson told halfwheel that the red foil-wrapped Ghost Pepper “will no longer be made.” A new pepper is expected to be produced next year.
