2013 La Verite 7x47 (Box of 10)


People who follow Pete Johnson of Tatuaje knows of his love for wine. In 2010 he borrowed the idea of a single vineyard wine and applied it to his cigars with a project called the La Vérité. Taking tobacco from a single vintage and farm, the cigars would be rolled and then aged for at least a year in master cabinets.

The first release in the project featured all one variety of tobacco—habano criollo—from a 2008 crop, rolled in 2009 and released in 2010. The second release in the project followed the same farm and vintage rule, though it was a blend of three varieties of tobacco from a 2009 crop, rolled in 2010 and released in 2011. Both releases featured two sizes: the La Vérité (7 x 47) and the L’Esprit de Vérité (5 x 50).

After the second release, Johnson had mentioned that third iteration probably wouldn’t debut until the end of 2012. That year came and went, as did nearly two more years, but at the end of 2014 Johnson announced that the La Vérité was coming back. This release was going to use tobacco from a 2013 harvest, though production had not started yet as the tobacco needed more time to be processed than in previous years.

It was another year and a half though until we saw the project again, at which point the Tatuaje La Vérité 2013 was shown off at the 2016 IPCPR Convention and Trade Show. Just a few months later, the cigars were shipped to retailers.
