Happy birthday Kerr Viajante. Viajante isn’t his real name, but a nickname he got from the owner of a lounge he frequents. Viajante means traveler and Kerr travels a lot. For work and leisure. But he combines his travels and his passion for cigars in his El Viajante Stogie Roads blog and vlog. He reviews cigars and cigar lounges on every of his trips.
Kerr Viajante joined forces with Dr. Gaby Kafie. Kafie produces cigars in his factory in Honduras, under the Kafie 1901 and San Jeronimo brands. Together the men created the El Viajante Cigar Edicion XXXV, a limited edition and first of a series called The Viajante’s Stogie Road Diaries.
The cigar is a 6 1/2 x52 Toro, blended with Nicaraguan, Honduran and Dominican fillers. The cigar has a double wrapper, barber pole-style, consisting from Honduran Cuban Seed Habano Maduro and an Ecuador Connecticut Shade leaf.
In a press release, Viajante said: “It’s been a dream to release a cigar that embodies the Viajante’s Stogie Roads travels. I am blessed to partner with Dr. Gaby Kafie and the talented people at his Honduras factory to bring this dream to reality. The quality of tobacco and the blend can only be appreciated and realized if the cigar has impeccable construction. Tabacalera G. Kafie y Cia factory delivers in these details”
Dr. Kafie stated, “Kerr Viajante enjoys working with people in the industry that are truly passionate about the leaf, and bring purpose and diversity to an already very colorful industry. Every cigar tells a story, this first blend will tell the story of Kerr’s travels throughout America in search of the next great cigar. Truly feel this blend will be representative of his quest”.
And right from the start, the cigars will be distributed to a few select international markets too. The New Zealand based distributor Canteros, Beyond in Kuwait and Al Faieq in Bahrain have already ordered the cigars. Viajante hopes to expand the number of countries in which his cigars are distributed in the short term.
But today it’s his birthday. Happy birthday Kerr Viajante. We expect you to celebrate your birthday in a cigar lounge somewhere, with great cigars and even better company.
