Viaje Cigars has announced the availability of the Viaje Summerfest 2015.  The Summerfest makes its return after a one year hiatus.  As Viaje founder Andre Farkas told us on Episode 136 of Stogie Geeks, the Summerfest 2015 will be produced in a new factory and new country – the TABSA factory in Nicaragua.  The cigar will be shipping to retailers along with the Viaje TNT 2015 and Viaje C-4 TNT.

This year’s Summerfest will be a 6 x 52 Toro and will once again be a Nicaraguan puro.  While it will feature the signature brushed foot, Farkas had mentioned on Stogie Geeks this would be a softer brushed foot that is more unfinished in style.
