Today, Viaje showed off its latest releases, something that could make you hungry.

The first cigar is Señor Andre’s Chicharrones. A cigar that has been hinted about before and in the works for over two years, according to a statement made by a Viaje representative to halfwheel earlier this month. It’s actually three different cigars using different Nicaraguan wrappers: corojo, criollo and maduro.

According to a statement on Viaje’s Andre Farkas’ Facebook page, the cigar measures 4 1/2 x 48 and is made at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) using AGANORSA tobacco. Each box contains 90 cigars, 30 of each of the three blends.

And for those of you requiring a bit of heat to go along with your CHICHARRONES, we are happy to introduce Viaje JALAPENOS. Plump, juicy and packed with flavor. Grown at our farms in Honduras, these have been hand picked at the peak of ripeness. Here at Viaje, we like to take things slow. By taking our time, using traditional farming methods and doing things the old fashioned way, we’ve perfected the ultimate balance of heat and flavor in our products. We invite you to enjoy one of our hot peppers and indulge in one of life’s simple pleasures.
