Tatuaje Monster "Hyde" #8 2015

Tatuaje Monster "Hyde" #8 2015


The Tatuaje Hyde is the eighth installment in the Tatuaje Monster Series. If you include the two new blends of Chuck and Tiff introduced in the Pudgy Monsters series, it is the tenth Monsters / Little Monsters / Pudgy Monsters blend overall. While each year Tatuaje fans await what the theme will be for the Monster Series, the Hyde has been known for sometime. Back in November 2013, Tatuaje Cigars owner Pete Johnson announced on Stogie Geeks that Jekyll and Hyde, the characters from Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” would be forthcoming installments in the Tatuaje Monsters Series. October, 2014 saw the release of the Tatuaje Jekyll and October, 2015 saw the release of the Tatuaje Hyde. Today we take a closer look at the Tatuaje Hyde.

This annual release series was created by Tatuaje founder Pete Johnson as a tribute to monster and horror movies. Every year since 2008, Tatuaje enthusiasts have anxiously look forward to the release of this cigar and seek to procure a box. Each release of the Monster Series is a different blend in a different (yet large) size. A single batch is produced and once the cigars are gone – they are gone. There have been two additional offshoots of the Monster Series released as samplers, the smaller Little Monsters set, and the (smaller and wider) Pudgy Monsters set.

The announcement of each release of the Monster Series sets off a frenzy by Tatuaje fans. Much of the frenzy for this release focuses on what has been termed the custom designed “dress boxes”. At the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show, Tatuaje showed off the dress boxes for both Tatuaje Jekyll and Tatuaje Hyde. When placed together, the two images form a single image. There were 666 Hyde dress boxes made available to thirteen retailers known as the “Unlucky 13”. The remainder of the Hyde cigars are packaged in simple cedar boxes. This is the cedar non-dress box.
