A new single store exclusive from Viaje appeared today, as Anthony’s Cigar Emporium in Tucson, Ariz. announced the release of the Viaje WLP Hair of the Dog, a cigar crafted in celebration of the retailer’s 23rd anniversary.

According to a post on the store’s blog, the new cigar is a 4 x 52 petit robusto that comes with a covered foot and uses a broadleaf maduro wrapper with Nicaraguan tobacco for the binder and filler. PDR Cigars is making the cigar at is factory in Tamboril, Dominican Republic.

Production is limited to 150 boxes of 24 cigars, a total of 3,600 sticks. The store is currently selling boxes via its website for $239, which works out to $9.96 per cigar.

It’s a follow up to last year’s Viaje WLP Hangover, a 6 x 54 Nicaraguan puro was rolled at Fábrica de Tabacos Raíces Cubanas S. de R.L. in Danlí, Honduras.


Anthony’s Cigar Emporium operates four stores in Tucson, as well as a fifth location in Phoenix and an online store.

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 previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
