At the 2009 IPCPR show we had finished wrapping up interviewing Matt Booth when Matt told us about a friend of his, Andre Farkas. Matt made the introductions, we did our thing with Andre and the rest is history. It is pretty fascinating to see Viaje Cigars go from this little known company, tucked away at the show to one that is widely known, with a loyal following and a booth that is sought after by many.
This year Andre introduces us to his new cigars like Honey & Hand Grenades, his box pressed perfecto 5th Anniversary and Collector’s Edition. He also brings us up to speed on some of the other projects he has in the pipeline like White & Dark meat versions of this year’s Stuffed Turkey (an idea we jokingly suggested at last year’s show) and much more.
