Tatuaje will be adding two new Surrogates cigars at this month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

One is a broadleaf-wrapped version of the company’s Crystal Baller size, a box-pressed 5 3/4 x 56 parejo, introduced in 2012. That new cigar is known as Eight Baller, which has an MSRP of $9.50. The original Crystal Baller uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper.

The Satin Glove blend—which uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over Nicaraguan fillers—will expand with a 6 x 54 toro vitola known as SG654, priced at $9.25. It was originally offered in a 7 x 47 Churchill size.

Pete Johnson of Tatuaje told halfwheel the cigars should ship shortly after the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins July 13 in Las Vegas, Nev.

Update (July 4, 2018) — The original version of this story referred to the company as L’Atelier Imports. That company no longer exists as it has been folded into the Tatuaje portfolio.

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2018 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.
