|Viaje WLP Stuffed Turkey|
Viaje has begun shipping their November releases to their authorized retailers. This release cycle by Viaje is highlighted by a new entry into the White Label Project family – the Viaje White Label Project Stuffed Turkey.
As par for the course with Viaje, there is always some mystery surrounding the blend, so not a lot is known whether this is a new blend or a new vitola on an existing blend. It is safe to say (and feel to correct me if I’m wrong) that this particular release ventures into some new territory for Andre Farkas and Viaje – the world of the 60 ring gauge cigar. I’ve always felt that this has been “whitespace” for Viaje and they have the power to capitalize on this market segment.
The White Label Project is a line that has been released by Viaje this year. The cigars in this line are considered somewhat experimental to varying degrees. One such blend was the Viaje WLP Candela released earlier this year. Another White Label Project blend is the WLP 50/50 Red. For the “Stuffed Turkey”, Farkas has said the inspiration for the name came from the online review web-site Stogie Review.
The release will be limited – and most likely authorized retailers will receive an average of one to two bundles.
I’ve asterisked (*) the binder and filler as I still am trying to finalize that they are indeed Nicaraguan in origin.

The Viaje White Label Project Stuffed Turkey is currently only available in a 5 x 60 vitola.
