Viaje posted a pair of photos to their Facebook page on Saturday confirming the return of the White Label Project St. Patrick’s and Honey & Hand Grenades lines.
According to comments posted by the company, both are slated to begin shipping to all authorized retailers on Monday, March 4.
From the picture of the WLP St. Patrick’s, production appears to be 175 bundles of 25 cigars, for a total run of 4,375 cigars and the largest production of the WLP St. Patrick’s in its three year history. 2011 saw 100 bundles of 25 produced while 2012 yielded 150 bundles of 25.
It also appears to be a 5 x 52 vitola, the same as last year’s and bigger than the original 5 x 50 size.
Little was disclosed about the return of the Honey & Hand Grenades, other than the 6 1/4 x 50 vitola named ‘The Shiv’ is returning. Two other vitolas were part of the line’s initial release, a 5 1/4 x 52 called ‘The Shank’ and a 6 1/2 x 44 called ‘The Rapier,’ which was reviewed on halfwheel.
Andre Farkas also posted pictures of the Honey & Hand Grenades box to his personal Facebook page with a note that the “bees fly Monday” and that he was “digging the packaging.” Numerous retailers complained about the packaging of the original release of the Honey & Hand Grenades line, saying that they had to pry the lids off, having been nailed shut with roofing nails, often ruining the boxes in the process.
