The Nuevitas name is not new to Tatuaje, but it has seen some changes since its original debut in the mid-2000s. Nuevitas lays claim to being the only brand ever produced by Tatuaje outside the auspices of the García family. Originally rolled at Pedro Martin’s Tabacalera Tropical before being discontinued in 2007, Nuevitas is back with a vengeance and now being produced at (where else?) but the García's My Father Cigars factory in Estelí.
Nuevitas includes both the Nuevitas and Nuevitas Jibaro blends—two different cigars that are overall similar in appearance. Nuevitas has a white band, while the Jibaro variety has a strikingly vibrant orange band. Nuevitas is unique in that it is not only a Nicaraguan puro, but also a García puro, using only tobaccos grown on the famed García tobacco fields of Nicaragua. The wrapper is a sun-grown Corojo '99 and it comes in only the 5" × 52 robusto size.
Nuevitas Jibaro has the same overall profile: Nicaraguan/García puro and a sun-grown Corojo '99 wrapper, but the Nicaraguan binder and filler differs, making the Jibaro a tick stronger/fuller than the Nuevitas.
Tatuaje Nuevitas has a sweet and creamy coffee flavor, while Nuevitas Jibaro has a bit more spice and black pepper quality that you would expect from a García-made cigar.
