Viaje’s latest Collector’s Edition releases have begun arriving at retail, a pair of 5 x 56 short perfectos in the Exclusivo and Exclusivo Leaded blends, both packed in 40-count humidors.

The Exclusivo blend is one of the company’s more highly regarded lines, a Nicaraguan puro that debuted in 2010 and became known as being the personal blend for company founder Andre Farkas. The Exclusivo Leaded blend, which debuted in 2014, takes the strength up from the original blend by way of the addition of medio tiempo leaves in the filler, a high-priming leaf not found on all tobacco plants.

Each version is offered in a 5 x 56 vitola and comes in wide 40-count humidors, with the cigars stacked in two rows of 20. The Exclusivo version is priced at $474 per humidor, or $11.85 per cigar, while the Exclusivo Leaded version is offered at $500 per box, or $12.50 per cigar.

Both versions were made at the Raíces Cubanas factory in Danlí, Honduras, with 250 humidors produced for each version. Additionally, they were sent to all authorized Viaje retailers.

Additionally, both come bearing the Collector’s Edition secondary band, a designation that indicates this will be the only release of this size and blend combination. With the release of these two cigars, the Collector’s Edition now has eight releases:

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
