The Tatuaje and L’Atelier Imports collaboration is hitting stores nationwide this week.
Pete Johnson told halfwheel that Négociant, a project between the two Johnson-owned brands, is shipping to stores nationally.
It’s offered in three sizes: Robusto (5 x 52), Corona (6 1/4 x 48) and Belicoso (5 3/4 x 52). The blend uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Mexican and Nicaraguan binders and Nicaraguan fillers. It does not include Sancti Spiritus, the signature leaf of the L’Atelier Imports brands.
The cigar’s name comes from the French winemakers who buy wine and/or grapes from other winemakers to produce their own wines.
