Viaje founder Andre Farkas has posted two pictures of what appears to show a return of the company’s Satori line.

Satori was launched in 2010 and received annual shipments through 2015, though it has not been since. Farkas responded to a question on Facebook regarding the wrapper, which he replied was Mexican San Andrés, the same as the 2012-2015 releases. He also indicated the cigars were being produced at the TABSA factory in Estelí, the same factory that produced the 2015 release.

Typically the Satori release has been show at the annual IPCPR Convention & Trade Show—which begins July 13—and ship to retailers immediately following the show.

A spokesperson for Viaje declined to comment on the release.

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
