With the huge Zombie craze going on right now it’s no surprise someone went ahead and created a zombie themed cigar. Zombie Supershots, from Viaje, were created as a monster-themed follow up to the Supershot cigars that were released last year.
Their unique packaging catches the eye and mimics the look of a shotgun ammo box intended for taking out zombies specifically. Zombie Supershots are a short and stout cigar sizing in at 3 1/2 inches by a 54 ring gauge and are packed in boxes of 25. These Nicaraguan puros also feature a tasty Criollo ’98 wrapper.
Andre Farkas, creater of the Zombie Supershot said the blend is a lot closer to the Zombie line in character then it is to the original Supershot brand. “It’s a mash-up of my Zombie line, which came out two years ago, and the Supershot,” Farkas explained to Cigar Aficionado.
Farkas is having fun with his new line and included a playful narrative with the Zombi Supershot. In the script Farkas has radioactive fallout from all the powerful smokes he’s put out in the past, turning much of the population into zombies. The smokes should be available to retailers this May.
