Viaje President Andre Farkas announced the ninth vitola in the Viaje Exclusivo line – the Viaje Exclusivo Super Lance. The announcement was made on his Facebook page.
The Viaje Super Lance measures 7 1/2 x 46. It is best to look at this as having the ring gauge of a Corona Gorda and the length of a lancero (7 1/2).
We had an opportunity to smoke a pre-release of this cigar. Click here for our thoughts and perspectives.
Like most Viaje releases, the Viaje Super Lance is a Nicaraguan puro.
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Criollo
As mentioned the Super Lance becomes the ninth blend of the Exclusivo line. For historical purposes, we list the nine vitolas to date of the Exclusivo series. The Super Lance measures a 7 1/2 x 46. We had originally reported the length to be 7 1/4 which turned out to be incorrect.
