For the ninth consecutive year, Tatuaje Cigars will be a part of the Tobacconist Association of America (TAA) Exclusive Series. At this year’s annual TAA Convention taking place March 17-21 at Casa de Campo In the Dominican Republic, Tatuaje will be taking orders for the Tatuaje TAA 51st.
The Tatuaje TAA 51st stands for the 51st anniversary of the Tobacconist Association of America. According to a report by Cigar Aficionado, the cigar itself is a pressed Robusto measuring 5 x 50. What’s different about this release as opposed to most of the previous Tatuaje TAA releases is that it is using a Mexican San Andres wrapper. The binder and filler in the blend utilize Nicaraguan tobacco.
Most of the Tatuaje TAA releases have used Connecticut Broadleaf as the wrapper. The exceptions are the Tatuaje 10th Anniversary Grand Chasseur TAA 2013 and the Tatuaje TAA 51st.
The following is the complete set of Tatuaje TAA offerings:

Typically TAA Exclusive Cigars are unveiled at the annual convention and made available to the approximately 80 retail members. The members come together at the annual convention and collectively make high volume purchases on cigars in exchange for exclusive promotions and pricing.
While other companies are expected to make TAA releases, very few make formal announcements on the products being offered to the TAA. The TAA also does not make formal announcements.
