Viaje Shipping Omakase, 2017 Stuffed Turkey & Farmer Bill Next Week


A trio of Viajes will begin heading to stores next week.

One is completely new, Omakase. It refers to the Japanese style of multi-course eating, but with the chef choosing the food for the customer. In recent years, the trend has become more popular in the U.S. with upscale Japanese restaurants, particularly as a way of eating sushi.


Viaje is declining to talk any details about the cigar as part of the theme of the release.[ref]Some sushi chefs will purposely not tell their customers what they are being served in order to avoid any preconceived notions about the food, though that’s not specifically traditional.[/ref]

Returning is the Viaje Stuffed Turkey. It’s said to be the same as the last release, which was in 2015.

There are two versions of Stuffed Turkey, both 5 x 58. White Meat uses a Nicaraguan criollo 98 wrapper, while Dark Meat uses a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper. Both cigars use Nicaraguan fillers.

One difference is that this version is box-pressed. Production for Stuffed Turkey was done at Raíces Cubanas in Honduras.

Boxes for this release show an Edición Limitada sticker, a first for the line.

Zombie Farmer Bill Hatchet remains the same as the 2016 release. That cigar was a 5 1/4 x 54 robusto extra that shipped in boxes of 30.
