Tatuaje N├ęgociant Monopole No. 2

Posted by Jack | in Tatuaje | on 31 Aug 2017 | at 5:25 AM | 30 views

Every year, I find at least three cigars that I just refuse to stop smoking.  This year, I have already done great damage to the existence of Caldwell's Blind Man's Bluff Connecticut, Blackworks Studio's Killer Bee, and the subject of this review, the Tatuaje Né gociant Monopole.  This was my most sought after cigar since Pete first teased us with it on Instagram.  Was it worth the wait?  Let's find out, shall we? Construction: As with every single cigar Pete puts out, the Monopole is gorgeous.  No seam or vein issues.  The Monopole is draped in a creamy Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper that has a nice suede feel to it. Pre-light Aroma and Draw: Unlit, the Monopole gives off a powerful set of notes.  Sweet tobacco,... Continue reading »»

 


 

Tatuaje Monster Series No. 8 The Hyde

Posted by Jack | in Tatuaje | on 22 Oct 2015 | at 6:04 AM | 1739 views

It's that time of year again.  Halloween is the time for costumes, candy, horror movies, and Pete " The Master" Johnson's Monster Series.  This year marks the eighth in the full size lineup - we aren't counting the Chuck and Tiff from the Pudgy set last year - and the first time that we have seen a two-part series. Last year was the incredible Jekyll so naturally we have to get the Hyde this year, right?  Bingo!  Anxious to smoke doesn't even come close here so let's get it on.... Before we begin, I always toss Pete a few ideas for next year - he probably doesn't see them but I do it anyway.  So here goes.  A Creature from the Black Lagoon cigar with...

Tatuaje Exclusive Series (Barclay Rex 2014)

Posted by Jack | in Tatuaje | on 16 Jul 2015 | at 2:45 PM | 1319 views

I won't go on too much here with flowery words. I love Tatuaje cigars - if you haven't already noticed - so this review was a no-brainer.  An exclusive Tatuaje? I mean, come on....This is the second incarnation of Pete's exclusive Barclay Rex which he created for the 100th anniversary of the New York store of that same name.  Having never smoked one of these exclusives before, I can honestly say I am excited.  Let's go! Construction: The Barclay is a hefty cigar.  The wrapper is oily and sparkly like all of Pete's Broadleaf creations.  A few veins and some lumps make for a nice rustic look topped off with a nice retro styled band.  Pre-light Aroma and Draw: Out of the cellophane - which...

Tatuaje Monster Series No.7 Jekyll

Posted by Jack | in Tatuaje | on 23 Oct 2014 | at 9:26 AM | 1655 views

I have no soul. I'm beyond the pale. I'm one of the living dead! Fredric March, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, 1931 Inside each human is the propensity for good and evil...the premise for Robert Louis Stevenson's The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, written in 1886.  How does this fit into the world of cigars?  Let us say that Pete Johnson has a flair for the dramatic.  The Jekyll's release this year and the Hyde following it in 2015, he has given himself a canvas with which to display the good and evil lurking inside the cigars we smoke.  Okay, that might be my flair for the dramatic here, but there is no denying that Pete has something exciting here. While his... Continue reading »»

 


 

Tatuaje Black Label Corona Gorda (2013)

Posted by Jack | in Tatuaje | on 27 Jun 2014 | at 3:34 PM | 1924 views

I know I am a bit behind on reviewing the Tatuaje Black Label Corona Gorda released last fall and this spring.  I have smoked several and I think the time is right.  The past few months have seen a slew of Tat releases and I have tried hard to review as many as I can.  The Tattoo and Pudgy Monsters are on my list of upcoming reviews.  As with many cigars, some time in the humidor has done wonders for these and they are only a couple of months old.  I felt them to be a tad harsh at first smoke but they have already simmered down a bit and...well, let's just get to the review....Better late than never. Construction: This particular specimen contained a... Continue reading »»
