Viaje announced a new hybrid project that combines the blend notes of their Zombie line with the format of their Super Shot line for the Viaje Zombie Super Shot, what Andre Farkas is calling “a mashup.”
The release, which was first mentioned on CigarAficionado.com, comes in a 3 1/2 x 54 ring gauge vitola that will be packed in 25-count boxes that feature a ghoulish zombie figure and a different color scheme than the rest of the Super Shot line. It is said to retail for $7 per cigar and should be arriving at retail by May.
The Viaje Zombie Super Shot uses a Criollo ’98 wrapper but further specifics on the blend were not released. The 2012 Viaje Zombie was a Nicaraguan puro, while the company announced back in January that the 2013 edition of the Super Shot line would be adding a Criollo wrapper.
Farkas told the magazine that the backstory for the cigar is that the powerful smoke from his previous releases “has turned much of the population into flesh eating zombies” and that this cigar is the “dramatic answer” to the situation.
