Viaje Drops Mother of All Bombs on Retailers

Gregory Mottola
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, respectively.

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.

The 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.

Smoked a few of these already, what a solid smoke, not for the newbie though and not always easy to get, send me an email if interested.

Sounds good and I have always enjoyed my Viaje smokes. Will have to see who carries them locally now.
