There is a new addition to the Tatuaje Brown Label Reserva line. The cigar is called the Tatuaje Reserva K222 and it pays homage to Tatuaje founder Pete Johnson’s late Rottweiler, Kona. The cigar was launched on April 23rd at Fujioka’s Wine Times in Honolulu, Hawaii and now is slated to make its nationwide launch.
The K222 features a new blend in the form of a 5 7/8 x 52. It features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. The cigar is being made in Miami, Florida. On his Facebook page, Johnson explained that the Reserva cigars made in Miami use Habano wrapper as opposed to Broadleaf which are used for the Nicaraguan ones. Johnson said he plans on making the Nicaraguan ones use a “Broadleaf” secondary band going forward.
As for the name, K222, it refers to the time of the day (2:22) when Kona passed away.
