For the first time since 2007, there is not going to be a new Tatuaje Monsters blend being released in October. However, that is not stopping Pete Johnson and Tatuaje Cigars from doing a special October list. For the first time since 2011, there will be a new Actors Series release – and that cigar will be the Tatuaje Karloff.
There is a loose connection between the Monsters Series and Actors Series. The Monsters Series pays homage horror movie characters in both classic and contemporary film. The Actors Series pays homage to the actors who played many of these legendary characters. While the Monsters Series has led to over 13 blends and 54 SKUs, the Actors Series is something that only saw 2 blends and 3 SKUs. The Karloff is the second blend following the original Actors Series release, the Tatuaje Boris (and the subsequent Tatuaje Little Boris release that was based on the Tatuaje Boris blend).
Both the Tatuaje Boris and Tatuaje Karloff pay homage to Boris Karloff, the actor who portrayed Frankenstein in many motion pictures.
Tatuaje Karloff is described as a different blend than Tatuaje Boris. a 6 5/8 x 49 Churchill sized vitola. The blend features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. The cigars are packaged in 13-count boxes. Unlike the Monsters releases, there will be no “Unlucky 13” for dress boxes.
At press time, the Tatuaje Karloff is en route to retailers.
