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.
At a glance, here is a look at the Viaje Summerfest 2015:
The Summerfest 2015 is a Nicaragua puro. It features a Nicaraguan Corojo 99 wrapper with tobaccos from Esteli, Jalapa, and Condega.
