Philadelphia-based Holt’s will be receiving a new Tatuaje HCS later this month, this time with a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper. The Tatuaje HCS #1 Reserva is an identical 5 1/4 x 50 to the original HCS #1 launched for Holt’s in 2010. The cigar will be released at consecutive events beginning on October 25.

According to Johnson, it’s the same filler as the regular HCS blend, but with a Broadleaf wrapper. The initial run is 200 boxes of 20 cigars with pricing expected to be the same $7.95 per cigar as the regular HCS #1.

Over the past week various Holt’s employees have tweeted images of the cigar, including the one above. Earlier this year, Johnson changed the band on another Holt’s exclusive, the Tatuaje Verocu No. 9.
