This week’s Saturday Supplemental strays a bit from the normal template. Instead of revisiting a cigar that either we’ve reviewed in the past and videoing my thoughts on it, this is a completely new cigar review. Why not do my standard written review for it, you ask? Well, I only have one Tatuaje Black, and for a proper review, I like to smoke at least two cigars. Otherwise, you never know if you got a bum smoke (if it goes badly) or an amazing exception. I know, videoing it doesn’t change that, but I couldn’t pass up sharing the experience in some way.
If you haven’t heard, the word is that the Tatuaje Black is Pete Johnson’s personal smoke, and hasn’t been available to purchase until this year. Of course, I use the word “available” loosely. If you’ve tried to find some of these recently, you know nobody has them. The good news is that sometime soon, these will be available again in ceramic jars of 19 cigars.
I really outta thank the guy who handed me one of these at a recent Blue Havana II herf. (Man I wish I remembered his name.) If you happen to stumble onto this review, thanks for hookin’ me up!
