In Tatuaje’s long history, only three cigars have not been made by the García family. That will change later this month.
Tatuaje is bringing back its Nuevitas and Nuevitas Jibaro, only now the cigars will be made at My Father Cigars S.A. The Nuevitas measures 5 x 52 and is priced at $8.50 per cigar.
There are three ways to tell the difference between the regular Nuevitas and the two Jibaro vitolas: the Nuevitas comes in 25-count boxes versus the 50-count boxes for Jibaro; the Jibaros have a shaggy foot and the cigars have different bands.
Jibaro No.1 measures 5 x 54 and retails for $9, while Jibaro No.2 is 6 x 52 and priced at $9.50.
All three cigars are Nicaraguan puros with a corojo 99 wrapper.
One other notable change from the original release—which was discontinued in 2007—is that the new version will have bands. The original cigars were made at Tabacalera Tropical in Nicaragua.
Johnson said the cigars should be shipping in late July.
