The third size in Tatuaje’s Series P Miami line has begun shipping, as Pete Johnson told halfwheel that he has sent the first boxes to retailers who are open for business and that pre-ordered them.
The new size, known as the P3, is a short robusto that measures 4 x 50 and comes priced at $6.50 per cigar, before taxes. It is offered 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. Both of those vitolas are priced at $7 each per cigar.
The Tatuaje Series P line is made in Miami at the El Rey de los Habanos factory, using the same Ecuadorian habano wrappers as the Tatuaje Brown Label vitolas, while underneath that sits a dual Nicaraguan binder and a mixed filler made from the remnants of Tatuaje Brown Label tobaccos.
It had originally been slated to ship earlier in the month, though delays in getting the cigars from the factory into the United States pushed it back a few weeks.
