At the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, the Tatascan line of cigars was showcased by JRE Cigars. This is a line of cigars, along with Rancho Luna and Aladino are three lines produced by Julio Eiroa, the father of Christian and Justo Eiroa. Last year, it was Christian Eiroa’s CLE Cigar Company that soft-launched these brands. Earlier this year, it was announced that Julio and Justo Eiroa would be forming a separate company called JRE Tobacco. This year, JRE brought the Tatascan back to the IPCPR, with a slightly different look and now two offerings to choose from.
The Tatascan line now has two distinct blends – a Habano and a Connecticut Shade wrapper offering. Both cigars feature an Authentic Corojo binder and a combination of Habano and Authentic Corojo wrappers. The Tatascan Habano and Tatascan Connecticut offerings will now come in eight sizes – each packaged in 20 count boxes. Both cigars incorporate a sweet tip on the cap.
The Habano offering has slightly different packaging from the original Tatascan offering. As for the Connecticut offering – it features black and gold for the boxes and bands. The Tatascan Connecticut is currently the only Connecticut offering in the company’s portfolio.
