Turns out there won’t be 5,000 master cases of the Tatuaje Reserva Broadleaf Collection.
Pete Johnson of Tatuaje confirmed that the company will be making far less of the 100-count boxes than originally planned, though that won’t be because the company is making less cigars.
This summer, the company plans on shipping 10-count boxes of the 10 Connecticut broadleaf-wrapped cigars. Unlike the largest master cases, these boxes will contain 10 of the same cigar.
Those cigars are:
- Tatuaje Havana Cazadores Reserva Broadleaf (6 3/8 x 43)
- Tatuaje Unicos Reserva Broadleaf (6 1/8 x 52)
- Tatuaje Noellas Reserva Broadleaf (5 1/8 x 42)
- Tatuaje Tainos Reserva Broadleaf (7 5/8 x 49)
- Tatuaje Especiales Reserva Broadleaf (7 1/2 x 38)
- Tatuaje Regios Reserva Broadleaf (5 x 50)
- Tatuaje Reserva SW Broadleaf (7 x 47)
- Tatuaje Reserva J21 Broadleaf (5 x 50)
- Tatuaje Reserva K222 Broadleaf (5 7/8 x 52)
- Tatuaje Cojonu 2003 Reserva Broadleaf (6 1/2 x 52)
Each of these cigars is a previously-released Tatuaje Brown Label, though these versions are wrapped in Connecticut broadleaf wrappers. Pricing will be the same as the non-broadleaf counterparts.
Johnson said he made the change to allow retailers to pick and choose the sizes that they want as opposed to having to sell all 10 of the sizes at once. Last year, when the cigars were announced, Johnson said that his plan was to produce 5,000 master cases.
The master cases, which include 10 of each cigar, are priced at $1,200 and began shipping last week.
