Tatuaje Cigars has announced the Unlucky 26 retailers who will receive dress boxes of this year’s Monster Series releases – Tatuaje The Chuck and Tatuaje The Tiff. Since there are two Monster releases, this year the total number of retailers who will receive the dress boxes is doubled. In previous years, the retailers were referred to as the Unlucky 13.
The Unlucky 26 will have the opportunity to carry this cigar in special limited edition “dress boxes”. While the dress boxes will be made available to the Unlucky 26, other authorized Tatuaje retailers will get the opportunity to carry the cigar in plain cedar boxes.
Over the past few years, this has typically become one of the most anticipated cigar releases of the year by many cigar enthusiasts. The name Unlucky 26 comes from the fact that the retailers selected to carry the dress boxes often have to deal with a frenzy of consumers trying to acquire a box.
Both Chuck and Tiff measure 5 7/8 x 52. Tatuaje The Chuck is officially dubbed as the 11th Monster installment – it features an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. Meanwhile, Tatuaje The Tiff has been dubbed the 12th Monster and features an Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler.
