The Viaje Birthday Blend is a 6x52 torpedo that uses a Nicaraguan criollo 98 wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. This special blend was created to commemorate Viaje's CEO Andre Farkas's birthday, billed as one of Viaje's best blends of all-time.
The Birthday Blend draws its inspiration from Old Forester’s Birthday Bourbon, which is an annual release to commemorate Old Forester founder George Garvin Brown’s birthday. Since 2002, it has been an annual limited release by the bourbon company. Viaje Cigars’ founder Andre Farkas decided to come up with a similar concept to commemorate his own birthday and thus the Viaje Birthday Blend was born.
Like most Viaje Cigars, the Viaje Birthday Blend is a small batch release.
