It wouldn’t be Halloween without a Tatuaje Monster cigar release. This year’s release will be a 14 cigar sampler, including a brand new Monster; The Creature. The other 13 cigars are all of Pete Johnson’s (owner of Tatuaje) previous monster releases in a smaller format. All of the previous Monster cigars are the same ring gauge but shortened by 38mm (1.5″). To keep with the Halloween theme, the sampler comes packed in a coffin-shaped box.
Pete Johnson has had other spin-offs of the monsters like the Little, Pudgy, and Skinny. All of those were the same blend but different variations of the original size. This years sampler will include the Monster Mash: Frank (49 by 156mm (6.125″)), Drac (52 by 133mm (5.25″)), Face (56 by 124mm (4.875″)), Wolf (52 by 152mm (6″)), Mummy (47 by 159mm (6.25″)), Jason (52 by 152mm (6″)), Jekyll (49 by 140mm (5.5″)), Hyde (49 by 140mm (5.5″)), Krueger (48 by 136mm (5.375″)), Michael (52 by 127mm (5″)), Chuck (52 by 111mm (4.375″)), Tiff (52 by 111mm (4.375″)), and the Bride (49 by 143mm (5.625″)). The brand new cigar in the sampler is The Creature (48 by 136mm (5.375″). The Creature is a Perfecto-shaped cigar, which is a first for a Monster release. Johnson has not disclosed the blend of the Creature.
Each Monster Mash sampler has an MSRP of $150. A total of 13,000 samplers are being made. All of the cigars will be produced at My Father Cigars S.A. in Nicaragua. At the time of this article, pre-orders have already started. Cigars should be at retailers before Halloween.
