Tatuaje L’Esprit de Vérité Robusto – 2009 Vintage

Editor:  Due to technical difficulties with blip.tv, this review is airing later than expected.  It was supposed to air before my Top Cigars of the Year list.  Never the less, here it is. Pete Johnson has started a pretty interesting concept with cigars that has been used in France for decades.  Pete visited one of […]


A Year of Anarchy

On Thanksgiving 2010 I posted a review of the Tatuaje Anarchy. The Anarchy is a Limited Edition cigar that is only available at Smoke Inn. To say the least I was blown away by the cigar at that time. Luckily enough for me a few folks in my family paid attention to that review because […]


Tatuaje 7th Capa Especial

Last year, Tatuaje Cigars introduced two new cigars to their Brown label called the 7th and 7th Reserva. Both were of the grand corona/corona gorda size (my fav) but different wrappers.

Tatuaje Havana VI Hermosos

So yesterday I made the 2 hour drive to The Humidour Cigar Shoppe in Cockeysville, MD for a Tatuaje event.

Quick Ash: Cabaiguan Petite

Hey folks! Back with a “Quick Ash” review for you this week and today I have the Cabaiguan Petite from Tatuaje. I reach for these sticks when time is limited and I need to get away for a short time. I look for small cigars that carry the full gambit of flavor and complexities of […]
