This is a discussion on What Tatuaje is this??? within the Meet the Manufacturer forums, part of the Cigar Specialty Forums category; Pete,
I was gifted 2 Tatuaje sticks that have a shaggy foot. I have heard these are not available anymore. ...
If it's none of those, then it could be a Thermonuclear. There are very few of those around and Pete has handed some out at events over the years as kind of a joke, because they were so strong. I don't think it's banded but I'm not sure about the shag foot. If the ones you have aren't banded, and they aren't in any of the links provided, then they may not be Tatuajes.
I am guessing that they are Nuevitas Jibaros. I made this cigar in Nicaragua with a different factory. I discontinued the line in late 2006. The factory making them actually closed and contracted their work to another factory. I could not trust the quality so better to close the line. The line might return in the future, we will see.
I originally modeled the Jibaros after some fresh rolled uncut Cohibas that a friend brought back from the island.
