One of Tatuaje’s oldest and most expensive lines will be getting a trio of new vitolas.
The Tatuaje RC Series will expand to include three new vitolas: RC No. 1 (4 3/4 x 52), RC No.2 (5 5/8 x 54) and RC No.3 (6 1/2 x 56). While Pete Johnson declined to talk specifics, in a comment on Instagram he indicated the cigars will use an Ecuadorian habano wrapper.
The RC Series currently contains two vitolas 184 (7 1/4 x 57) and 233 (9 1/8 x 55)—both large perfecto vitolas. Each feature a white band with red, mustard and blue accents—which is what’s pictured on the RC No.2 above.
RC stands for Retro Cuba and the cigars were packed with foil covering one half the cigar, a technique used earlier in Cuba.
While Johnson did not provide details for pricing, he did confirm the cigars are produced at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua.
