In the past Viaje has had no new products to show off at the IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, though this year was very different.

Viaje Skull and Bones Ten Ton Tess Black

Viaje Skull and Bones Ten Ton Tess
The company showed off three different versions of a ceramic jar that will hold two different incarnations of the Skull and Bones Ten Ton Tess. The first two jars will be silver on black and silver on white, and will be limited to 500 jars of 19 each.

Inside, the 6 x 54 cigars will be the same, a blend consisting of a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, a Dominican binder and filler tobaccos from Brazil, the Dominican Republic and the United States. Each cigar will retail for $14.47 each.


Viaje Skull and Bones Ten Ton Tess Gold

Viaje will also be releasing a more limited version of the Skull and Bones Ten Ton Tess jar with a gold on black color scheme. While the size will remain 6 x 54 and no blend information has been released, there will only be 100 jars of 19 released, and it will not have a specific MSRP attached to it.

In addition to the three versions of Skull and Bones Ten Ton Tess, Viaje will be releasing a second incarnation in its Collaboration line, this time with PDR Cigars. The newest version is a 6 x 52 toro made up of an Ecuadorian Havana wrapper, two binders from the Dominican Republic and filler tobaccos from the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.

It will retail for $12.80 each, and will be sold in boxes of 20 coffins with only 600 boxes produced.

As has been the case each year, Viaje also showed off Satori, although the blend is now being produced at  TABSA factory in Nicaragua instead of Fábrica de Tabacos Raíces Cubanas S. de R.L. where it was made in the past. Each of the four vitolas will have a total of 100 boxes of 25 produced except for the 4 1/2 x 48 Arya, which is sold in 50- count boxes.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
