In 2010, Viaje released two of its more limited offerings, double perfectos in each one of the company’s then core lines. Last week, Andre Farkas posted a picture of the boxes on Facebook with the message, “So many inquiries about these. Possible rerelease?”
The Viaje Oro Perfecto measured (5 1/4 x 52) while the Platino Perfecto was 6 x 50. Both cigars were limited to 55 cabinets of 50. A spokesperson for the company told halfwheel that the tentative plan is to have these part of the company’s 2015 release schedule.
These two releases differ from the Viaje Oro Reserva (VOR) and Viaje Platino Reserva (VPR), which were box-pressed double perfectos with tweaked blends.
In 2012, the company announced that Oro and Platino would no longer be regularly offered items and have since offered the two lines once per year. Previously, the Oro and Platino were described as the company’s “core lines,” but were normally available no more than twice per year in rather limited quantities.
