Multiple retailers have confirmed to halfwheel they have received invoices for Viaje’s next shipment, which includes three versions of the Skull and Bones, as well as the Viaje V.O.R. #5 and V.P.R. #6. Given the timing, the cigars should be available at some stores by the end of the week.
Skull and Bones, a series introduced in 2010, has been on a twice-a-year release pattern, including an annual October M?stery release. Previously, Good Karma Cigars in Amarillo confirmed to halfwheel there would be three sizes of Skull and Bones when they announced their event with Andre Farkas scheduled for October 26, 2012. The names of the three sizes have been listed as: M?stery, M?stery BP and M?stery Vintage. Last year, Viaje offered both a M?stery and box-pressed M?stery. Viaje posted the picture above to its Facebook page, indicating the glow-in-the-dark bands are back for the October release.
In addition, Viaje posted pictures of both the Viaje V.O.R. #5 and V.P.R. #6, now featuring secondary Viaje bands and a Reserva band on the foot. The V.O.R. and V.P.R. are special modified and aged blends of Viaje’s Oro and Platino lines.
