PRESS:
"The Tatuaje Tattoo initially started out as a limited edition [2011] release with the intention of protecting the Tattoo trademark, with yearly releases planned. This didn’t seem to happen, with the next sighting of a Tatuaje Tattoo being in 2014 when this iteration was released with a new blend and as a regular production cigar." Halfwheel

"While Tatuaje Cigars are made by My Father Cigars, this particular cigar is made at Tabacalera Cubana (TACUBA) in Esteli, Nicaragua. TACUBA is a factory owned by the Garcia family. It was opened when the Garcias expanded its operation out of El Rey de los Habanos in Little Havana, but before the construction of the My Father Cigars S.A. factory. TACUBA is still used by the Garcia family today." Cigar Coop
