Pete Johnson is once again digging into Tatuaje’s archives, announcing on Wednesday that the Fausto Up Down 10/50 will be heading back to the Chicago retailer next week.
The cigar, which was originally released in October 2013, gets its name from the celebration of two anniversaries: the 10th anniversary of Tatuaje and the 50th anniversary of Up Down Cigar. It is a 6 3/8 x 43 lonsdale, and like the regular production Fausto vitolas it uses an Ecuadorian habano maduro wrapper over Nicaraguan binders and fillers.
Johnson told halfwheel that the redux of the Fausto Up Down 10/50 will have an MSRP of $10.50, with production limited to 500 boxes of 20 cigars. That’s an increase from the original release when there was 200 boxes of 20 cigars produced.
The original Tatuaje Fausto Up Down 10/50 placed #13 on halfwheel’s Top 25 Cigars of 2013.
