Tatuaje adds two Cabaiguan sizes. The new sizes are expected to reach retailers in the United States in October before being rolled out internationally. The new sizes are called No. 52 and No. 54.

The new sizes

The No. 52 is a short robusto that measures 4⅜x52. The No. 54 is a robusto extra with a size of 5⅝x54. Both come in boxes of 24. The blend is the same as the rest of the line. The Ecuadorian Connecticut Seed shade-grown wrapper is used to wrap all Nicaraguan tobacco from the filler and binder. This creates a medium-bodied, old-world Cuban style cigar. The cigars are rolled at My Father Cigars S.A. in Esteli, Nicaragua

The Cabaiguan line was launched in 2006. Its name comes from a city in northern Sancti Spírites province that is home to some of the most knowledgeable cigar men in Cuba. Since the start, the cigars have a flag tail. The first boxes of Cabaiguan are American made, back when Don Pepin Garcia only had a small factory in Miami. El Rey de Los Habanos was replaced with a large, new, factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, and production moved as well. Tatuaje founder and owner Pete Johnson has plans to update the bands on the Cabaiguan after 14 years.

limiteds and spin-offs

Over the last 14 years, Johnson created several limited editions, store exclusives, and even a spin-off line for the Gabaiguan. The spin-off is called Cabaiguan Guapo. The Guapo was meant to be a one-off but the demand was too high and the praise was too positive. So Johnson decided to turn it into regular production as well. Two lines to be precise. One with a natural Ecuadorian wrapper, the other with an American Maduro Broadleaf wrapper. But now Tatuaje adds two Cabaiguan sizes as regular production cigars.
