Viaje will be releasing a new line in its October shipments to retailers called the Viaje Full Moon 2013.  In 2013 company President Andre Farkas has focused much around line extensions and 2013 batches for his existing small batch lines.  The Full Moon 2013 represents the first new line in the 2013 calendar year to be shipped by Viaje. The 10/22/13 Cigar Insider had some details around this release.

For the past few months, Farkas has mentioned several times he had something special planned for Halloween, and the Full Moon 2013 represents that.  While some details around the release have been disclosed, Farkas is actually keeping the cigars and the banding a secret until they show up at retailers.   He did however provide a glimpse of some of the unique packaging.

As for the packaging, it features a lacquered circular-shaped box with a Halloween jack-o-lantern design on it.  The circular box is shipped in a cardboard carrying case with a similar design on it.
