Tatuaje’s 10th Anniversary Capa Especial: A Wrapper Switch Journey in Commemorative Cigars
Recall the moment Tatuaje introduced the Belle Encre and Bon Chasseur cigars to commemorate its 10th anniversary in 2013? Well, this month, Tatuaje is unveiling a limited edition of these anniversary cigars, but with a twist – they now feature Ecuador Sumatra wrappers instead of the Habano wrappers from the original release.
Dubbed the Tatuaje 10th Anniversary Capa Especial, these reimagined cigars are expertly crafted in Nicaragua by the Garcia family at My Father Cigars S.A in Estelí. The original 10th Anniversary cigars were initially rolled with Ecuador Habano cover leaf.
Pete Johnson, the President and CEO of Tatuaje Cigars Inc., highlighted the intention behind this wrapper switch, stating, “We like doing this to show how much a cigar can change with a different wrapper present. This helps to educate the consumer’s palate and understand why they like different tobaccos.”
The Belle Encre Capa Especial, a perfecto measuring 5 3/8 inches by 48 ring gauge, and the slightly larger Bon Chasseur at 5 3/8 by 52, both come packaged in 20-count boxes with a suggested retail price of $12 per cigar. Comprising all-Nicaraguan tobacco, except for the new wrapper, only 3,000 boxes of each size are being produced. Johnson anticipates shipping the cigars later this month.
This isn’t the first time Tatuaje founder Pete Johnson has experimented with wrappers on its 10th Anniversary line. In the previous year, Mexican wrappers were introduced on the same two sizes, and the cigars were labelled “Tuxtla,” signifying the major city in Mexico’s San Andrés growing region.
