Viaje Drops Mother of All Bombs on Retailers
Posted: March 26, 2012
Last week, tobacconists around the country were hit with two new sizes in the Viaje Skull & Bones series, a high-octane line conceived by brand owner Andre Farkas. The two sizes have ominous names, which he says are references to their strength: MOAB (Mother of All Bombs) and FOAB (Father of All Bombs).
Both measure 4 1/2-inches long, and the
Mother and Father have thicknesses of 52 and 56 ring gauge,
MOAB and FOAB are also part of the Skull & Bones White Label line (a Red Label also exists) and are Nicaraguan puros covered with Criollo wrappers. According to Farkas, all sizes in the White Label are named after non-nuclear weapons, whereas the stronger Red Label cigars are named for nuclear ballistics.
smokes come packaged in boxes of 25 and are adorned with simple black
bands bearing a standard skull and crossbones logo. MOAB retails for
$8.80, while FOAB retails $9.20. Only 300 boxes of each size were
produced. They are made in Honduras at the Raices Cubanas factory.
