Viaje has offered a glimpse at one of its new releases scheduled for 2014, a project being referred to as the Exclusivo Leaded.
The Leaded line will up the strength of the Exclusivo line by adding a medio tiempo leaf into the blend, a fairly rare priming of leaf that grows above the ligero on certain plants and was recently brought to light due to its use in the Cuban Cohiba Behike line. Farkas discussed the cigar on a recent episode of Kiss My Ash Radio as being a more robust version of the Exclusivo.
Not much else is known about this new release other than its band, which features a silver, black and red color scheme, similar to a hybrid of the Exclusivo and Fifty-Fifty Red lines. Andre Farkas was seen smoking one during the Holiday Blend Christmas Tree launch event at Anthony’s Cigar Emporium in Tucson, Ariz. on December 21. Recently, a photo of the cigar was posted by a consumer on Farkas’ Facebook page.
In addition, Farkas mentioned on the show that he will be adding a box-pressed Churchill to its Oro line.
