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.
The statement in full reads:
WHO’S HUNGRY? Viaje presents Senior Andre’s CHICHARRONES! There are 3 flavors for you to enjoy in every box; Original, Bold and Spicy. 3 different blends featuring Corojo, Maduro and Criollo respectively. Senior Andre’s CHICHARRONES uses only the finest ingredients grown and raised at AGANORSA farms, Nicaragua. (Each box contains 90 CHICHARRONES, 4.5″ X 48, TABSA, shipping 3/16 to all authorized VIAJE retailers)
To go along with your Chicharrones is Viaje Jalapeños. It’s a 4 7/8 x 51 figurado made at the Raíces Cubanas factory in Danlí, Honduras. No tobacco origins were disclosed.
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. (Each box contains 25 JALAPENOS, 4 7/8″ X 51 Figurado, Raices Cubanas, shipping 3/16 to all authorized VIAJE retailers)
Both cigars are scheduled to ship next Monday, March 16. A representative for the company declined to provide any further details such as price or release size. Multiple retailers told halfwheel they have not received invoices yet.
