Viaje is set to begin shipping four cigars, some new items and other cigars returning to the market.
Viaje’s Oro and Platino blends will see the rerelease of the Perfecto sizes, the first time the company has sold the cigars since 2009. Those cigars, which measure 5 1/4 x 52, were special offerings of the company’s Oro and Platino blends, which at the time were sold in a relatively typical manner, where retailers could place orders throughout the year. That has since changed and Viaje now uses a model where it ships retailers specific cigars at specific times of the year.

These last few weeks have been extremely difficult for all of us. We send our thoughts and prayers to all those that have been affected by COVID-19. As we all go through this difficult time together, we wanted to take a moment to thank you for being a part of our Viaje family. In response to recent events, this month we are doing something special with a cigar we haven’t released since 2009. Viaje Oro and Platino Perfectos will soon start shipping at a dramatically reduced price to assist our retailers with sales who will then pass on these savings to our incredible fans. We thank you all for the love you have shown us and ask that you please continue supporting your favorite cigar retailer.
As for blend info, pricing or where these are being made—none of that is known. A spokesperson for the company said that he would be unlikely to respond due to working limited hours and has since not responded with details.
Viaje’s Instagram page did say that the cigars would be offered with “dramatically reduced pricing,” though it’s unclear what that means.

YOU WOULDN’T LIKE ME WHEN I’M ANGRY – Quarantine got you down? We are doing all we can to lift your spirits. Breaking through walls and bending steel, Bruce Banner and The Hulk are both set to make an appearance this month. When angered, Bruce transforms from a 5.25” X 56 to The Hulk, 5.25” X 60. 2 sizes, 2 unique blends. Shipments will be sporadic, so please check in with your Viaje retailer about this product. Hang in there family!
The company is also adding what appears to be two new cigars to its Skull and Bones line: Bruce Banner (5 1/4 x 56) and The Hulk (6 1/4 x 60).
Somewhat confusingly, Viaje has already released a Skull and Bones cigar with The Hulk name, two in fact. That happened in 2017 as an exclusive for Anthony’s Cigar Emporium.
Those cigars were branded as part of the Viaje Skull and Bones Green line and were Nicaraguan puros. This release appears to be part of the core Skull and Bones line, hence no green in the bands, though it’s unclear what the blends are, other than the two new cigars are different per Viaje’s Instagram post.
