Hot Viaje Brand Expands
Posted: June 20, 2011
Hot boutique brand Viaje is expanding its offerings. There is a new shape, a double torpedo, on the way for two Viaje brands. The cigars are known as the Viaje Oro Reserva Double Torpedo VOR DT and the Viaje Platino Reserva Double Torpedo VPR DT.
The smokes are 5 3/4 inches long with a 52 ring gauge at their fattest point. "There are only a few rollers in the factory that can roll this impressive shape," said Andre Farkas, president of Viaje Cigar Co. Both retail for $11.60. "Originally these were going to be a limited edition, but I like the shape too much. This will be regular production."
The cigars are made from Nicaraguan tobacco sourced from Aganorsa, and they are rolled at Fabrica de Tabacos Raices Cubanas S. de R.L. in Honduras.
Viaje Oro Reserva VOR No. 5 is Cigar Aficionado magazine's No. 2 cigar of 2010. The 5 1/2 by 52 smoke scored 95 points.
