Tatuaje has released the Tatuaje Limited DB Capa Especial, a new limited edition cigar that is a spin on another one of its well-known limited editions.

The Tatuaje Limited DB Capa Especial is a variation on the Tatuaje Tobacco Plaza DD, using an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper instead of a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, which is also what results in the cigar wearing the Capa Especial secondary band. Both cigars use Nicaraguan tobaccos for the dual binder and fillers, and like the Tobacco Plaza DD, the Tatuaje Limited DB Capa Especial is offered in a 6 x 58 gran belicoso vitola.

Pete Johnson of Tatuaje told halfwheel that he produced a total of 2,000 boxes of 10 cigars, making for a total of 20,000 cigars for the release. It has an MSRP of $17 per and is being released to about 60 stores across the country, with just about six having received it so far. Johnson expects the full allocation to ship by the end of November.

Johnson told halfwheel that the Tatuaje Limited DB Capa Especial is a one-and-done release.

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 MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
