Tatuaje has announced that it has delayed the release of two of its upcoming limited editions, the Tatuaje TAA 2022 and the Tatuaje PCA 2022, until January.

The two cigars are complementary to each other, both using a Nicaraguan double binder and filler. The TAA 2022, which is made for the Tobacconists’ Association of America (TAA), uses a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, while the PCA 2022, which was offered to retailers who attended this summer’s Premium Cigar Association Convention & Trade Show, uses an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper.

Both cigars measure 5 3/8 x 52, come with an MSRP of $14.50, and are offered in 20-count boxes. In addition, each is limited to 1,000 boxes, and both are made at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.

Pete Johnson of Tatuaje told halfwheel that the cigars have been resting in boxes for months, though he decided to delay them “only because we had too many limited products releasing at the same time. We thought it was best to spread them out.”

Additionally, Tatuaje is donating 50 cents for each cigar sold to respective organizations.

Both cigars had originally been scheduled to ship this month.

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.
