Two weeks ago I smoked the Tatuaje Verocu Tubo with you. This time I’m lighting up the companion release, the Tatuaje Black Tubo. The Black is known as Pete Johnson’s personal smoke, and came out in two other sizes previously, a corona gorda (my favorite) and a robusto. It’s a Nicaraguan puro, and features an unfinished foot. It’s a little pricier than the Verocu tubo at a MSRP of $14, and comes in the same 10 count boxes.
Name: Tatuaje Black Tubo
Company: Havana Cellars
Made by: My Father Cigars
Made in: Nicaragua
Comes in: Boxes of 10
Vitola: 6-1/8″ x 52
This was an incredible stick. Good complexity of flavor, very nice construction. While the price point is high, it’s definitely worth having one now and then on a special occasion. It’s definitely my favorite size in the Black lineup now.
I also talk a bit about the interview that Pete did with Jerry from Stogie Review, where he talks about not doing the tubes anymore. Lots of good info in that interview, so I suggest checking it out. I also talk about special occasion cigars and how to get the most out of them.
