Pete Johnson’s Havana Cellars has shipped a third size of the Tatuaje Mexican Experiment to two Virginia stores. The Tatuaje Limited Series Mexican Experiment Belicoso (5 x 52) is the third size, joining the Robustos and Toros released in late May, both of which were also regional specific.

“That was another size in the experiment that I was trying to figure out what to do with them,” said Pete Johnson of Tatuaje. He ended up shipping 74 bundles of 15 to the state of Virginia. MSRP is $7.50 per cigar.

“Only two stores got them, Emerson’s of Norfolk and Havana Connections, Richmond.”

Both retailers are said to have them in stock.

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
