|Tatuaje Avion 12|
At the 2012 IPCPR Trade Show, Tatuaje Cigars’ unveiled the final version of the Tatuaje Avion 12. The Avion series is a series of annual limited edition vitolas that use the Tatuaje Fausto blend. The Avion 12 marks the second year Tatuaje has released a vitola in this series.
The Tatuaje Avion 12 was actually pre-released to Holt’s Cigar Company in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania earlier this year. The Avion 12 was included a special “Let Freedom Ring” sampler pack offered by Holt’s. This early release did not contain the standard Avion banding, but a “Tatuaje Limited Release” band that is similar to what is seen on the Tatuaje Mexican Experiment.
The Avion 12 is also a box-pressed perfecto but in a smaller length than the Tatuaje Avion 11. The ring gauge remains the same.
Here are the particulars of the Tatuaje Avion 12:
Like the Fausto, the Avion derives its strength from using higher primings of the tobacco:
