Tatuaje’s Series P Miami line is slated to get a new short robusto vitola this spring.

Pete Johnson announced the new 4 x 50 size on Instagram, saying that he is planning for it to be released in April and likely to Tatuaje retailers who already carry the Series P line. Series P is made in Miami at the El Rey de los Habanos factory, using the same Ecuadorian habano wrappers as the Tatuaje Brown Label vitolas, a dual Nicaraguan binder and a mixed filler made from the remnants of Tatuaje Brown Label tobaccos.

Johnson told halfwheel that it will be priced at $6.50 per cigar and will be released in 25-count gold foil-wrapped bundles, just like the other two sizes, the P1, a 5 5/8 x 46 corona gorda, and the P2, a 5 x 50 robusto. He also announced that those two vitolas have increased in price to $7 each per cigar.

Update – Shortly after this article was published, Johnson finalized pricing, and announced that the other two sizes would be increasing in price as well. Also, the name of the factory was corrected to its proper name, El Rey de los Habanos, which is owned by the García family of My Father Cigars.

Update (March 31, 2020) — Pete Johnson told halfwheel today that the release of this cigar has been pushed back, with the cigars still in Nicaragua. He did not indicate when he expected they would ship.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and previously the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for Major League Baseball, plus I'm a voice over artist. Prior to joining halfwheel, I covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
