A new cigar from Viaje called The Geisha is scheduled to be on store shelves in early July, according to a report by Cigar Aficionado.

The cigar is reported to be a 6 3/4 x 52 perfecto that will be offered in two blends, one using a Nicaraguan corojo 99 wrapper and the other using a Mexican San Andrés maduro wrapper. Both cigars use Nicaraguan binders and fillers grown by AGANORSA Leaf, which is producing the cigars at its Agricola Ganadera Norteña S.A. factory in Nicaragua.

The two cigars will come in the same box, with 14 of each version offered in packaging that is designed to resemble a bento box. Pricing is reported to be $15 per cigar and $420 per box. Production is being limited to 400 boxes, according to the report, though the company indicated there would be more produced in the future.

An email sent to Viaje seeking to confirm the accuracy of the report has not yet received a reply.

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.
