Viaje’s Honey & Hand Grenades lines are getting a new Collector’s Edition size, a 6 x 54 vitola called the Falchion that will be released in both a new corojo-wrapped option and the Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper version.

As with other sizes in the line, this new vitola gets its name from a bladed weapon. According to social media posts by the company, it references a one-handed, single-edged sword of European origin that was used around the 13th century. As a tie-in to the origins of the vitola names, each of the previously released vitolas has come in a perfecto vitola featuring a tapered foot designed to look like the point of a blade, while the portion of the cigar below the band has been wrapped in red foil paper designed to mimic blood on the blade after it has been used.

The Honey & Hand Grenades line debuted in 2012, with subsequent releases in 2013, 2016 and 2019. Those versions have used a Nicaraguan criollo wrapper, but he company is switching to a Nicaraguan corojo wrapper for the Falchion.

In 2021, the company added a maduro version, which uses a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper. Both versions use a Nicaraguan binder and filler, and for the Falchion, the company said that the cigars were aged for a full year after production.

The Falchion comes with the Collector’s Edition designation, meaning it will be a one-off size for the line. This is the second new size for the Honey & Hand Grenades line in recent months, as in December 2022 the company added The Katana, a 7 x 48 vitola, though that vitola was described as being a “micro production.”

The Viaje Honey & Hand Grenades Falchion Collector’s Edition is scheduled to begin shipping to retailers on March 20. The MSRPs are set at $14.08 per cigar for The Falchion Corojo and $14.72 per cigar for The Falchion Maduro. Both cigars come in boxes of 25.

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.
