When Pete Johnson announced the 2013 release of the Tatuaje Noella Reserva (5 1/8 x 42, $8) and Regio Reserva (5 1/2 x 50, $10) in 2013, it was with the intention of releasing both cigars in limited quantities annually.
That will not be the case as the cigars are now on an indefinite hiatus.
Johnson confirmed to halfwheel plans for an annual release of the cigars are no more. An email sent to retailers earlier in the day read:
This will be the last we will see of the Noella and Regios Reserva’s for years to come so don’t miss out on picking up a few before they are gone for good.
The pair are two of the original six sizes of the Tatuaje Brown Label line, but with a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper instead of the normal Ecuadorian Habano.
This was the second release for the Regio Reserva, which debuted in 2009. It was the third time the Noella Reserva had been released.
Originally, 4,000 boxes of each size were expected last year with 2,000 shipping annually thereafter. Ultimately, only 2,500 boxes made it out last year—the largest release in the history of both cigars.
