Previously Tatuaje Cigars announced their plans for a NFT offering of their acclaimed Tatuaje Anarchy cigar, originally released as a store exclusive in 2010 for Smoke Inn Cigars. The project now includes S.T. Dupont of Paris and Xikar/Quality Importers.
The project, which will be showcased at the 2023 PCA Trade Show in Las Vegas, will captivate attendees with its display in Tatuaje’s booth, numbered 10069, on the expo floor from July 8th to 11th. This will be an exclusive opportunity for cigar enthusiasts, collectors, and fans to witness the unveiling of this remarkable NFT offering and collection.
Pete Johnson expressed his excitement about the collaboration, stating “The original Tatuaje Anarchy cigar remains to be one of the largest single store releases in our industry and is still being sought after by consumers worldwide. I felt this cigar specifically was worthy of a special NFT offering that would allow the cigar to exist, while in very limited quantities, on a regular basis. Collaborating with S.T. Dupont and Quality Importers was the perfect way to create a very special and unique collection to complete the offering.”
The Tatuaje Anarchy NFT collection consists of seven numbered and unique original art NFTs, each entirely distinct. Six of these NFTs, numbered 1-6, will be sold via separate live auctions to be held consecutively in August this year. The seventh NFT will be issued to Smoke Inn Owner and Anarchy brand creator, Abe Dababneh.
“I cannot tell you how excited I am about this offering. Thirteen years after the original release, and we still receive regular emails from consumers asking if we have any left hidden away. This is an incredible way to let this cigar live on and be available to fans and collectors once again. I am confident Tatuaje fans all over will be hunting down these cigars from any lucky retailer who was able to obtain one of these NFTs,” stated Abe Dababneh
Each NFT comes with a specially crafted handmade 75-count Tatuaje Anarchy NFT Edition humidor, featuring 60 original Tatuaje Anarchy cigars and 15 ultra-rare Anarchy Pale Horse Editions exclusively made for NFT holders. The Pale Horse Edition mirrors the original blend but utilizes a special claro wrapper instead of the original Habano maduro. Limited to only 105 cigars ever produced in this vitola, these Pale Horse editions are truly a coveted treasure. Additionally, the winning bidders will receive a 24×36 framed print version, a 01/01 Ligne 2 Lighter by S.T. Dupont of Paris, a newly developed Perfect Xi1 Cutter by Xikar, and a crystal ashtray by Quality Importers, all with matching art to the seven unique NFTs. Furthermore, each Tatuaje Anarchy NFT owner will have the exclusive privilege to purchase a quarterly allotment of 15 boxes of 15 Tatuaje Anarchy NFT Edition cigars at the price $14 per cigar.
Vice President of Sales for S.T. Dupont, Les Mann states, “I cannot recall any other time a single version of a Ligne 2 lighter ever being made. These NFT edition lighters will not only be a rare collectable for Tatuaje fans, but also for all S.T. Dupont fans as well. It was a remarkable experience for our Art of Fire team in Paris to be involved in this project. The lighters are a true one of one production. I can’t imagine owning a one only ever produced S.T. Dupont lighter! Congratulations to Pete on this fantastic collaboration!”
