The Viaje Jalapeno, a cigar project that pays homage to the spicy pepper with the same name is returning for 2016. Today Viaje announced that the Viaje Jalapeno 2016 edition will begin shipping to its authorized retailers beginning on 4/18. Details were announced on the company’s Facebook page today.
Like the 2015 edition of the Viaje Jalapeno, details on the blend have not been disclosed. The cigar will be a similar size to last year, a 4 7/8 x 50 figurado. The cigar is being made at the Raices Cubanas factory in Danli, Honduras. The cigars will come packaged in 25 count boxes. Production numbers have not been disclosed, but most Viaje releases are small batch in nature.
In addition to the shipment of the Viaje Jalapeno 2016, Viaje is also shipping the new Viaje Exclusivo Reserva.
