Two famed Tatuaje releases are nearing respective rereleases as part of Pete Johnson’s 10th anniversary. The Havana Cellars head told halfwheel both are expected to see 2000-box shipments in “March/April and then in November.”
The confirmation follows an e-mail from New Havana Cigars’ Dan Welsh, who is also involved with Johnson in L’Atelier Imports, hinting at a “shipping soon” status for both rereleases. Johnson told halfwheel pricing would be the same as the non-Reserva versions of each, meaning the Noella Reserva carries an MSRP of $8.00 per cigar and the Regio Reserva will sell for $10.00 plus applicable local taxes. Both cigars are sold in boxes of 25.
This is the third release for the Noella Reserva, which debuted in 2006 and was rereleased in 2009. The Regio Reserva debuted in 2009, limited to 200 boxes of 25 cigars.
In addition, the Tatuaje Federal 90th Anniversary Redux was released this past weekend at the New Hampshire retailer’s annual anniversary celebration. Johnson has also stated plans to ship the next release of the Tatuaje Cohete to Tower Pipe & Cigar in the near future.
Update (March 20, 2013): Welsh says he’ll have it on Friday (March 22, 2013).
