The Cigar: Tatuaje The Face Redux 3

The Specs:
Wrapper: Mexico (San Andrés)
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Strength: Medium-Full
Size: 6.375" x 56

Shipping: US addresses only

Due Date: June 25, 2024

The Hype: Tatuaje's The Face became recognizable for using a jaggedly cut piece of Ecuadorian Connecticut tobacco to serve as the band, a nod to the movie monster Leatherface from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, who was known for wearing a mask made of a person's skin. Like its Monster Series predecessors, The Frank and The Drac, it came in boxes designed to look like coffins, complete with red paint splattered on them to mimic the look of blood. Tatuaje produced 5,000 boxes of 13 The Face Redux 3 — a total of 65,000 cigars — of those 5,000 boxes, 700 are individually numbered, while the other 4,300 are not.

I am not concerned about what you think as I can tell you don't do it often.
