Viaje has announced two new additions to its ever-expanding portfolio, both part of already existing series.

The first is Exclusivo Nicaragua Leaded. A post on social media says that it took the Exclusivo Nicaragua blend and added medio tiempo tobacco. Medio tiempo is the highest priming on a tobacco blend, above the ligero primings, that is only found on a fraction of plants, historically the priming has been just classified as a ligero, though in recent years some have begun to separate the tobacco.

A company spokesperson declined to comment on any details of the cigar, but a social media post indicates that it will be offered in the three core sizes of Exclusivo Nicaragua—Robusto, Toro and Double Robusto—as well as a “limited edition” Corona Gorda.

The other cigar is the latest in Viaje’s White Label Project Series (WLP). It’s called Thanksgiving Leftovers, a 4 3/4 x 52 vitola that uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper. A Viaje spokesperson described the blend as “AGANORSA,” likely meaning the fillers are Nicaragua. Of note, the spokesperson said it’s priced at $8.80 “for both,” which could mean a second vitola.

It’s being produced at Raíces Cubanas in Danlí, Honduras.
