Over the weekend, Tatuaje Cigars owner Pete Johnson revealed the annual list of retailers—collectively known as the “Unlucky 13″—to receive dress boxes of The Bride (#13).

First revealed at IPCPR 2018, The Bride (#13) marks the 13th (and final) release in Tatuaje’s fan-favorite Monster Series. Since the series’ debut in 2008, Tatuaje has shipped coffin-shaped dress boxes of the cigars to 13 of Tatuaje’s best-selling retailers across the country; these retailers are not revealed until late September / early October, shortly before the cigars begin arriving at retail.

As of 2009, with the second installment in the series (The Drac), Tatuaje has produced additional boxes of the cigars (arriving shortly after the Unlucky 13 dress boxes) that are packaged in plain, 10-count boxes. The quantity of these boxes has varied over the years, but Pete quoted the release at 4,500 boxes to Cigar Dojo at this year’s IPCPR. Strangely, he set the number of dress boxes at 700, differing from the usual allotment of 666 boxes of 13 cigars. This places the overall release at 54,100 cigars for 2018.



Tatuaje The Bride (#13) is sized at 7⅛” x 49, featuring a light, rosado-shade Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper (similar to the original The Frank cigar, but with less of a maduro profile) over Nicaraguan binder/fillers; Johnson describes this blend as medium-plus in body.
