A pair of new sizes will be joining Tatuaje’s Cabaiguan line in October, the No.52 and No.54.

Both sizes are named for their ring gauges; the No.52 is a short robusto that measures 4 3/8 x 52, while the No.54 is a robusto extra that measures 5 5/8 x 54. Both sizes will be offered in 24-count boxes, and will use the same blend of an Ecuadorian-grown wrapper over Nicaraguan binders and fillers. They will also have the signature flag cap featured on the rest of the line, what Pete Johnson of Tatuaje refers to as a “lancero head” or “cabeza lancero.” The line is produced at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.

Johnson has also announced plans to update the bands of the Cabaiguan line, posting a possible design to his Instagram account in January 2020:

Pricing is still being finalized, but Johnson told halfwheel that they will be shipping next month. They will be among a growing number of new cigars that he will be releasing, joining the Tatuaje Karloff and two new sizes of the Tatuaje Black Label Private Reserve.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
