Viaje Farmer Bill Hatchet and Stuffed Turkeys Returning This Month

Null

Viaje’s core trio of Thanksgiving themed-cigars—Farmer Bill Hatchet, Stuffed Turkey White Meat and Stuffed Turkey Dark Meat—are set to be back on store shelves in the days before the holiday.

The two Stuffed Turkey cigars have the most history of the three cigars, dating back to a single release in 2011 as part of the company’s White Label Project. The line added the Dark Meat version in 2012, and thus making the original the White Meat version, with both leaving the WLP program in 2014 to get their own packaging.

The company has yet to confirm specifics on the cigars, but according to retailer listings, the 2020 versions will once again be offered in a 5 x 58 robusto gordo vitola and priced at $250 for a box of 25 cigars, or $10 per cigar, before taxes.

As for the blends, both versions use a Nicaraguan binder and filler, with White Meat using a a Nicaraguan criollo 98 wrapper, while Dark Meat features a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper.

Farmer Bill Hatchet, which was first released in 2014, is a Nicaraguan puro that uses a criollo wrapper and comes in a 7 x 52 vitola. It is priced at $114 for a box of 10 cigars, or $11.40 per cigar, before taxes. As the story goes, Farmer Bill Hatchet is named for the person who helps get the Stuffed Turkey to your Thanksgiving table.

According to a comment left on an Instagram post, the company said the cigars will begin shipping to retailers on Nov. 16.

As for the company’s other Thanksgiving themed cigars, such as Zombie Farmer Bill Hatchet, Farmhand Andre and Zombie Farmhand Andre, the company said they will not be shipping this month, but did not expand beyond that as to whether or not they will be appearing in the near future.

The company announced the new cigars via its social media accounts.

About the author

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
