The 2018 versions of Viaje’s Stuffed Turkey White Meat and Stuffed Turkey Dark Meat will be heading to retailers today, continuing the company’s series of Thanksgiving-themed cigars.
This year’s cigars return to the 2015 version, meaning a 5 x 58 robusto gordo vitola. The Stuffed Turkey White Meat uses a Nicaraguan criollo 98 wrapper, while Dark Meat features a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper. Both cigars use Nicaraguan-grown AGANORSA tobacco for the filler and are produced at the Raíces Cubanas factory in Honduras.
Each version comes in 25-count boxes and is priced at $10.40 per cigar and $260 per box.
Last year, the company released an Edición Limitada version of the cigar, box-pressing it for the first time in the series’ history. The cigar debuted in 2011 as part of the company’s White Label Project (WLP) series, before graduating out of that series and into its own branded line in 2014.
The company has also said that an additional Stuffed Turkey offshoot is forthcoming, though declined to provide details on it at this time. As for the Farmer Bill Hatchet release that has often accompanied the Stuffed Turkey, Viaje founder Andre Farkas said that it was returning when asked about it at the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, though a spokesperson for the company declined to provide an update.
