Today Viaje Cigars announced a new cigar as part of its early Spring 2015 releases. As the name indicates, the Viaje Jalapeno employs a theme of a spicy hot pepper. The Viaje Jalapeno will ship on 3/16 to all authorized retailers.  Information on this announcement appeared on the company’s Facebook page.

The Viaje Jalapeno will be released in one size – a 4 7/8 x 51 figuardo. The upper portion of the cigar will have green foil wrap and a new band design for Viaje will adorn the center of the cigar. The Jalapeno is packed in 25 count boxes.

Specific blend details were not disclosed.  The cigars will be made at the Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras – the factory where much of the Viaje line is produced.

Viaje seems to be incorporating a “Cinco de Mayo” theme for this Spring release.  The company also announced a three blend set called Senor Andre’s Chiccharrones.
