A handful of retailers have reported receiving small amounts of the 2019 edition of the Viaje Zombie in both the Red and Green blends.

Not much has been announced about this year’s release, other than that both cigars measure five inches long with a 52 ring gauge and come with a tapered foot. They appear to return in the same blends as previous years, Nicaraguan puros with the red-banded version getting a maduro wrapper, while the green-banded version uses a criollo wrapper.


When asked about the release, a representative from Viaje said “no comment on this one.”

The cigar has previously come in 20-count boxes, with the 2018 Viaje Zombie Green priced at $11.80 per cigar, or $236 for a box, and it appears based on one retailer’s listing that the price  and format remain the same for this year.

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.
