The Viaje Super Shot, one of Viaje’s most popular annual small-batch releases, is returning for 2023. In addition, the Super Shot Buckshot, a maduro counterpart to the Viaje Super Shot, is also making a return.
The Viaje Super Shot is a cigar that comes from Viaje founder Andre Farkas’ interest in clay shooting. Farkas was hoping to create a short smoke to have while taking a break in between shooting. The Super Shot is also a good cigar to enjoy outside during the winter months.
The Super Shot is a Nicaraguan puro and is highlighted by a Nicaragua Criollo wrapper. The Super Shot Buckshot features a San Andres wrapper over all-Nicaraguan tobaccos. As with the previous installments in the Super Shot line, there are two vitolas. Each vitola is sized to represent shotgun shells – a 10 gauge (3 1/2 x 54) and a 12 gauge (3 1/4 x 52). The cigars will come in 25-count boxes looking like a shotgun shells box. As with previous releases, the Viaje Super Shot 2023 is a small batch release.
The Super Shot was originally introduced in 2012. The Buckshot made its first debut in 2020. In addition, there have been several offshoots of the Super Shot line, most notably the Viaje Zombie Super Shot (multiple releases), the Viaje Super Shot Corojo, and the Viaje White Label Project Super Shot.
