Earlier this morning on Smoke Inn’s Kiss My Ash Radio show, Pete Johnson of Tatuaje announced that he would be releasing the Monster Series in smaller vitolas. The popular Monster Series has previously been regulated to larger sizes, hence the Monster moniker. During the show, which will be available online later this week, Pete said that he is working on thinner RGs and shorter sizes.

Early reports indicate that it will be available in samplers. As of now, the only mention of a release date has been June.

Update (January 14, 2011):

The names for the cigars are:

  • Frank Jr.
  • Lil’ Drac
  • Baby Face
  • Wolfie
  • Mini Mum*
*Mini Mum is based off of The Mummy, the next Tatuaje Monster Series.
Tatuaje will release 5,000 sampler boxes of 10, which will include two of each size. Pete Johnson has said that the sizes are not finalized at the moment. Pete has decided to make 10,000 boxes of 10 cigars to help satisfy demand.
There is no update on The Little Boris, a project that Pete had previously indicated he would be doing for Corona Cigar Co.’s Jeff Borysiwicz.
