The Viaje Piña, which has been off the market since 2017, is slated to make its return this month.

The line’s blend uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Ecuadorian binder and Nicaraguan filler, the same as the original release, and it is once again made by Tabacalera La Alianza in the Dominican Republic. It is being offered in the same two vitolas as before:

  • Viaje Piña Makana (6 x 52) — $11 (Box of 24, $264)
  • Viaje Piña Nohea (5 x 54) — $10.83 (Box of 24, $259.92)

The line returns wearing new bands that feature a pineapple on them, as opposed to the plain white bands used for the original release, as it had been part of the company’s White Label Project. The release is limited to 350 boxes of each size, with shipping scheduled to begin on Sept. 19.

Viaje made the announcement about the Piña via CigarAficionado.com. A representative from the company has not yet replied to an e-mail seeking to verify the accuracy of that report.

Update (Sept. 13, 2022) — A representative of the company confirmed that the details in the report were accurate. The company also posted images of the cigars to its social media accounts, which have been added to the story.

Update (Sept. 13, 2022) — The company has revised the pricing on the Piña, and the article has been updated above. The Makana was initially announced as $10.56 and the Nohea was $10.40.

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.
