For the second year in a row, the annual Tatuaje TAA release will be a redux.

Pete Johnson of Tatuaje has announced this year’s size of the special release will be a 6 1/4 x 50, the same size that was released in 2012. Tatuaje first introduced the series in 2011 as an exclusive for members of the Tobacconists” Association of America (TAA) who attend the groups annual convention which is held in March or April of each year.

The blend, which has stayed the same with the exception of 2013, uses a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and fillers. It is said to be based on the Tatuaje Pork Tenderloin and Barclay Rex.

Last year’s release was the same size of the inaugural cigar.

The 2016 TAA Meeting & Convention takes place March 6 -10 in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico. The Tatuaje TAA typically ships in late summer or early fall.

The TAA is a group of approximately 80 retailers located throughout the U.S. who meet once per year. The organization also has the TAA ESP program that sees select manufacturers produce exclusive cigars for members of the organization.
