At least two of what Pete Johnson has described as “too many store exclusives” for 2015 will be something familiar.
The Tatuaje Cigars owner took to his private Saints & Sinners forum to give a broad outline of what to expect in 2015, including the fact that the Tatuaje M80 will be returning in June to Two Guys Smoke Shop.
The 4 x 50 petite robusto first went to the New Hampshire retailer in June 2011. Only 333 boxes of 15 were offered for sale, priced at $6.50 per cigar. Johnson said the blend will be the same, meaning an Ecuadorian habano maduro wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and fillers. It is said to be based of the T110/Fausto blend and made at My Father Cigars S.A.
“Changing the bands and the packaging a little to make sure they aren’t confused for original release,” wrote Johnson on the forum. In addition, the M80 will now be a “regular production” offering for Two Guys Smoke Shop.
The M80 features a long pigtail cap, similar to the Don Pepin Garcia Firecracker (3 x 50) that was released to Two Guys before. In addition, the retailer offers a cigar simply known as “The Firecracker,” which also measures 3 x 50.
