About the cigar[edit]

This brand was created by Peter Johnson (owner of Tatuaje Cigars, Inc.) in consultation with Jaime Garcia, the son of José "Pepin" Garcia. The filler (the Cabaiguan blend) is a blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos, the binder is Nicaraguan and the wrapper is a Connecticut seed shade-grown Ecuadoran leaf, and results in a medium-bodied cigar. This cigar was released in 2004 and is available in four vitolas.
