So Farkas created a smoke that he could enjoy during breaks in clay shooting and called it Super Shot. The smokes come in two sizes virtually identical to shotgun shells: 12 Gauge, measuring 3 1/4 inches by 52 ring, and 10 Gauge, measuring 3 1/2 by 54.

I would be in for a group buy, but I have a really bushy moustache, and I'm afraid it would catch fire lighting that short of a cigar.

Seriously, I would be up for it, I like most Viaje cigars.

I like short smokes....I'll play.

Only caveat...let's make sure someone can actually put their hands on them.
Let's try not to repeat the MUWAT issue caused by the hype and slow release by the manufacturer.

It got me. But only because Viaje makes some damn good cigars.

I'm wary of anything limited run, because what that really means is fake scarcity and inflated prices. I'll be interested in seeing the price.

I am wary because the ring gauge advertised for the 10 gauge is clearly wrong

Great point, and if someone finds some, don't quote split prices until you estimate shipping to everyone.
Don't want an innocent getting burned.

I'm in on a split but want to see pricing and availability.

Viaje announced this on 1/11/2012

UPDATE - VIAJE is now 100% small batch. ORO and PLATINO will now be rolled in short runs to ensure quality and consistency. In addition, both will now feature a primary and secondary band.
