Viaje’s Señor Andre’s Chicharrones Returns With New Blend, Sizes


Viaje is dipping into its archives to bring back Señor Andre’s Chicharrones, a trio of cigars that was originally released in March 2015.

There will once again be three variants of the line: Original, Bold and Spicy. While all the tobacco is still coming from AGANORSA, the company is calling the three versions “remixed” in its social media posts. They’ve also gotten a bit thicker, going from a 4 1/2 x 48 in the original release to a 4 1/2 x 50 for this batch.


The cigars will continue to be presented in a 90-count box, with 30 cigars of each blend included. MSRP on the box is $676, which works out to about $7.51 per cigar. Production is still being handled by Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) in Nicaragua.

Each of the original versions used a Nicaraguan binder and filler, with the Original using a Nicaraguan corojo wrapper, the Bold having a maduro wrapper of undisclosed origin and the Spicy using a Nicaraguan criollo cover leaf. All of the tobacco for those cigars was produced by AGANORSA.

Shipping is slated to begin next week, and the cigars will head to all authorized Viaje retailers. The recently announced Viaje Juntos 2018, a collaborative cigar with E.P. Carrillo, is also scheduled to begin shipping in the coming days.

About the author

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, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
