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 seperate the tobacco.

EXCLUSIVO NICARAGUA LEADED – Exclusivo Nicaragua is taking it up a notch as Leaded makes its debut just in time for the holidays. What makes these different? We took Exclusivo Nicaragua and added a very rare and special leaf to the blend, Medio Tiempo. Leaded will arrive in 3 sizes (Robusto, Toro and Double Robusto) with the addition of a limited edition Corona Gorda. The holidays just got a bit spicier! UPDATE – LEADED IS SOLD OUT.
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.
