On April 22, 2015, Pete Johnson’s beloved dog Kona passed away—the time was 2:22.
Tatuaje K 222 is a tribute to Pete’s late pal (Kona 2:22), utilizing a special blend thats said to be a cross between Tatuaje’s Cojonu 2003 and Reserva J21. The cigars are surprisingly regular production, being produced in very small batches of 100 boxes per month. Pete has opted to use the Garcia’s original Doral factory—marking the 1st new regular release Tatuaje blend at El Rey de los Habanos since 2009.
Despite the similar appearance, the cigars use an Ecuadorian Habano maduro wrapper, as opposed to the Connecticut Broadleaf from the My Father Cigars SA factory in Nicaragua.
