Shotgun Shell Cigars from Boutique Brand Viaje
Posted: January 13, 2012
After a day of shooting clay discs during target practice, Viaje brand owner Andre Farkas was inspired to create a shotgun-themed cigar called the Viaje Super Shot. It’s a short, squat cigar intended to be smoked in short intervals and packaged to look like live shotgun ammunition.
“I recently took up clay shooting and I noticed that the cigars I brought weren’t short enough to enjoy between rounds,” said Farkas. “I’d start smoking and before it was finished it was my time to shoot again, so the smoke kept going out.”
So Farkas created a smoke that he could enjoy during breaks in clay shooting and called it Super Shot. The smokes come in two sizes virtually identical to shotgun shells: 12 Gauge, measuring 3 1/4 inches by 52 ring, and 10 Gauge, measuring 3 1/2 by 54.
Like all of Viaje’s cigars, Super Shot is a limited-edition smoke. Viaje recently announced that, from this point on, the company will only be producing small-batch production runs. Lines like the Oro and Platino that were previously regular-production brands will now be made in limited quantities only.
