Tatuaje The JV-13

Pete Johnson of Tatuaje Cigars has to be a huge Halloween fan.  Either that or he’s just a smart marketer, as he’s made a habit of making special cigar releases for Halloween since 2008 that make up his “Monster Series.”

The 2013 release is called The JV-13.  If you’re a horror film fan, you can probably deduce that the cigar is cryptically named for Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th.  Interestingly enough, The JV-13 is limited to just 13 cigar retailers from across the country.  (As you can see, there’s a whole “13” theme going on with this stogie).  Production is limited to 666 Dress Boxes that contain, you guessed it, 13 cigars.  The Dress Boxes are quite interesting, as their top cover is in the form of a hockey mask like our beloved Jason wore on the big screen.

An additional 3,100 plain boxes of 10 have also been produced.  The JV-13 features a filler blend of Nicaraguan tobaccos and a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.  It comes in a Double Corona format that measures 7 ½ x 52.  Each JV-13 has a retail price of $13.  With the limited nature of the cigar overall and especially the Dress Boxes, however, you can expect to see some re-sellers trying to make a nice profit off of this Halloween cigar.

Tatuaje The Mummy

This Halloween 2012 release from Tatuaje took after the Boris Karloff character.  It measured 7 ¾ x 47 and featured Nicaraguan fillers and a Nicaraguan Sun Grown wrapper.  Production was limited to 666 Dress Boxes of 13 coffins.  The Dress Boxes were made to look like a mummy’s sarcophagus.  An extra 3,100 plain boxes of 10 were also produced.  If you’re a Tatuaje fan, The Mummy was based off the brand’s Black Label line, but in a larger size that supposedly helped to alter the flavor of the original.

Tatuaje The Wolfman

I guess you’re starting to see a pattern here, huh?  More Halloween sticks from Tatuaje!  The Wolfman was released in 2011 and takes after the monster found in the 1941 film titled The Wolf Man.  The cigar itself was based off of the Tatuaje Cojonu series but differed a tad thanks to its wrapper. 

Measuring in at 7 ½ x 52, The Wolfman is characterized by its shaggy end that is supposed to resemble the hair of the character it was made to honor.  As for its Dress Box, it had a severely rustic look and splatters of fake blood on the cover to give it a complete Halloween feel.  666 Dress Boxes of 13 were produced, as well as 1,300 plain boxes of 10.
