|Viaje Exclusivo Corona Gorda|
Back in February 2014, Viaje Cigars President Andre Farkas was a special guest on our Stogie Geeks show and announced that the Viaje Exclusivo Corona Gorda would be released as a small batch shipment. Information has now surfaced on Viaje’s Facebook page that the cigar is now heading to retailers.
The Exclusivo blend started as a personal blend for Farkas. The 5 5/8 x 46 Viaje Exclusivo Corona Gorda was originally an “unofficial” event only cigar for Viaje. Last year, Farkas introduced a new blend – the Viaje Secret Sauce as Viaje’s event only cigar. This marks the first time the Corona Gorda has been released outside of being an event only cigar.
Farkas said on his personal Facebook page the Corona Gorda was the blend by which all of the other Exclusivo releases was based off of. The Corona Gordas were shown with a footer band.
