Fans of the Toro and Britanicas Extra vitolas in Tatuaje’s Black Label Private Reserve line will want to start stocking up, as Pete Johnson has announced that both sizes will be getting an additional release before taking a nap for several years.

After being released in the fall of 2020 as a limited edition of 500 boxes of each size, Pete Johnson told halfwheel that he has produced another 1,000 boxes of each vitola to be made available exclusively at the upcoming PCA Convention & Trade Show and through the PCA Product HUB. But once those are gone, he isn’t planning on making any more for a while.

Both of the sizes debuted in September 2020, with the Toro measuring 6 x 50 and the a 5 3/8 x 48 perfecto. Each cigar has an MSRP of $11 and is offered in 20-count boxes. As with the other sizes in the line, they are Nicaraguan puros that uses a sungrown criollo wrapper from the Estelí region.

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 the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
