In 2016, Viaje Cigars introduced Zombie Farmer Bill Hatchet, a new Thanksgiving release incorporating Viaje’s Zombie theme. This week Viaje announced that this cigar will begin heading to retailers this month.

The Zombie Farmer Bill Hatchet, a Thanksgiving seasonal release incorporating Viaje’s Zombie theme and back for 2017. The cigars will ship this month along with the Viaje Stuffed Turkey Edición Limitada 2017 and Viaje Hamaki Omakase.

In 2014, Viaje released a 7 x 52 box-pressed Nicaraguan puro known as Farmer Bill Hatchet.  That release would make a return in 2015.  Last year, Farmer Bill Hatchet was changed to Zombie Farmer Bill Hatchet. This new incarnation was a 5 1/2 x 54 box-press with blend details not released. That same box-press returns for 2017.

Like last year, Zombie Farmer Bill Hatchet is being offered to retailers in 30-count boxes – each containing six five-packs of the Zombie Farmer Bill Hatchet.

The Zombie concept is one that is shrouded in mystery when it comes to the blend, but there is a story to it that ties several Viaje releases together. The story goes that Viaje Skull and Bones WMD (Weapon Mass Destruction) explodes. Because of radiation from the explosion, people end up mutating into “Zombies“.  The Zombie Super Shot helps arm people for what Farkas calls the “Zombie Apocalypse”.  The only way to cure the Zombies is with the Zombie Antidote which has resulted in Zombie Biohazard. As a part of this story, Farmer Bill Hatchet has been infected as a Zombie.
