Tatuaje Black Label Corona Gorda (2013)

Posted by Jack | in Tatuaje | on 27 Jun 2014 | at 3:34 PM | 2018 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 »»

 


 

Tatuaje Belle Encre Reserva

Posted by Jack | in Tatuaje | on 26 May 2014 | at 3:51 PM | 1720 views

If you read my blog regularly, you will know that Tatuaje is my favorite cigar brand around.  I consistently reach for Pete Johnson's cigars and am never...and I mean never disappointed.  A richness you won't find anywhere else, construction that makes most brands look like amateurs, and a very broad selection of profiles has made the brand the stuff of cigar legend.  So as I sit here on Memorial Day, listening to WWII era big band tunes, remembering my family and friends who have served in the armed forces of this great land, I feel compelled to put to digital media my thoughts on a new Tatuaje cigar.  What better way to while away a lazy holiday?  Today''s selection is the reserva edition of the...

Tatuaje JV13 Jason Voorhees - Re-smoke!

Posted by Jack | in Tatuaje | on 13 Mar 2014 | at 11:40 AM | 2149 views

Like the antagonist of the Friday the Thirteenth films, it's back for a re-smoke!  The JV13 by Tatuaje popped up last October as part of the Monster Series that Pete puts out every year.  I smoked my way through the Mini Monsters prior to the big release last Fall, and to be honest the JV13 was at the time, I thought, a little harsh and raw.  Additionally, I thought that it showed signs of brilliance - of what it would become.  Because of this cigar there were some rather heated debates going on around the web about aging/resting cigars in your humidor before smoking them.... There were folks saying that Pete was forced to rush the JV13 and it didn't get the aging it needed,... Continue reading »»

 


 

Tatuaje Avion 13 Reserva

Posted by Jack | in Tatuaje | on 07 Mar 2014 | at 7:56 AM | 2019 views

Soaring into the review lineup today is the Tatuaje Avion 13 Reserva.  First let me say that I love the Avion line extension from Tatuaje....extending the Fausto line, that is.  Where the Fausto is a stick of TNT, I have often found the Avion line to be a touch lighter and more elegant than the devil dancing on your taste buds of the Fausto line.  Now that I think about it, that is probably the whole point to the Avion line.  But I digress. The Avion 13 Reserva is actually a spin off of the Avion Limited, which used an Ecuadorian Habano Maduro wrapper.  Somewhere along the line, Pete decided to change the wrapper to his tried and true broadleaf and the Reserva blend was...

Tatuaje JV13 Jason Voorhees

Posted by Jack | in Tatuaje | on 31 Oct 2013 | at 2:16 PM | 1876 views

Let me take you back to the late 80's....me, sitting in the old goose neck rocking chair watching Friday the 13th part 2 with my Grandma....yes, my Grandma.  She loved horror movies.  She never jumped either and would always say, " once I start watching one, I just have to see how it turns out" .  She is 91 now and can't see or hear very well but I still have the memories.  Anyway, there I am, watching intently and she creeps up and pokes me in the ear with a resounding " boo!" , making me jump up and fly across the room.  As I look back I laugh, but when my heart was beating a heavy tattoo in my chest, adrenaline flowing like...
