The Viaje Satori will be returning for 2014. The Viaje Satori is a annual release that was introduced in 2010 that is intended to be an exclusive to those Viaje retailers attending the IPCPR Trade Show. This year, the 2014 release features a new twist. For the first time, the annual release will feature four vitolas as the Viaje Satori 2014 Arya will introduce a 4 1/2 x 48 size vitola into the line.
According to Viaje Arya is a term frequently used in Buddhism that translates to “noble”, “not ordinary”, “valuable”, “precious”, or “pure”.
In addition to the new Arya line extension, the Viaje Satori 2014 returns the familiar Karma (Robusto), Nirvana (Toro), and Zen (Box-Pressed perfecto). This is the first time a new frontmark has been introduced since the Viaje Satori 2012 reversed the rounded vitolas with the box-press vitolas for that year’s release.
The Viaje Satori 2014 marks the fifth consecutive Satori release at the IPCPR Trade Show for Viaje. The current blend was introduced in 2011 and pretty much has remained the same. While the Karma, Nirvana, and Zen vitolas will be packaged in 25 count boxes, the Arya will be packaged in a 50 count cabinet box.
