Viaje And Quesada Cigars Collaborate On Juntos Project For 2016

Viaje and Quesada Cigars are teaming up for a collaborative project called Juntos that will be released at this year's IPCPR trade show. This marks the third collaborative project between Viaje and another manufacturer, but unlike previous releases, the cigar is no longer called Viaje Collaboration. A trademark issue caused brand owner Andre Farkas to change the name to Juntos, which means "together" in Spanish.

"I met Hostos [Fernandez Quesada] through traveling to the Dominican Republic," Farkas told Cigar Aficionado. "He's eager to try some new things. I approached him about it and he thought it was a great idea. The Quesada factory is all about togetherness. The environment is so fantastic."

The Juntos cigars will come packaged in a tall cylinder made up of two stacked, interlocking tins. Ten Toros (6 inches by 54 ring gauge) will be in the top tin and ten Torpedos of the same size will be in the bottom.

"The packaging design was finalized at the Intertabac trade show in Dortmund when I saw the design through a manufacturer at the show," Farkas added.

Made at the Quesada Cigars factory in the Dominican Republic, the cigar blend consists of a Dominican Negrito wrapper, Dominican Criollo binder and a filler combination of Criollo '98 and ligero tobacco from Nicaragua. Only 1,000 tins of 20 are being produced. Pricing has yet to be established.
