The Mexican Experiment is back and with a sequel.

In August, Tatuaje will ship a limited run of the Mexican Experiment—a cigar that debuted in 2011—as well as ME II, a follow-up release. The Mexican Experiment was a collection of various cigars, all limited but released in various manners, that used a blend of a Mexican San Andrés wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan filler. The basic blend components for the ME II are the same, as will the sizes and pricing, though the specifics of the latter are not available yet.

  • Tatuaje Mexican Experiment/ME II Robusto (5 x 54)
  • Tatuaje Mexican Experiment/ME II Toro (5 3/4 x 50)
  • Tatuaje Mexican Experiment/ME II Churchill (6 1/2 x 48)
  • Tatuaje Mexican Experiment/ME II Belicoso (5 x 52)

Production of the Mexican Experiment is limited to 1,000 bundles per size, while the ME II is a regular production release. Both are made at My Father Cigars S.A. in Nicaragua.

Pete Johnson of Tatuaje posted a picture showing the Mexican Experiment in bundles and the ME II in boxes. The ME II also gets different bands.
