IPCPR 2019: 19 Minutes with Pete Johnson

And of course, it wouldn’t be a trade show without the next installment of the Minutes With Pete Johnson. That’s right, it’s time to talk Tatuaje. We get started talking about the stealth release of the full-sized Chuck and Tiff, now with the proper Monster Series treatment. Then there’s Mexican Eperiment, with a limited runs […]

Top Cigars of the Year

Top 10 Cigars of 2018

Once again, the season of lists is upon us. And in keeping with tradition, we err on the side of caution when it comes to creating our list of the top 10 cigars for the year. The goal is to publish after we’re certain the old year is completely dead, but just before people get […]

Tatuaje Monster Series The Bride

It’s Monster season again. If it feels more foreboding than your typical October that could be because the cigar I’m reviewing today, the Tatuaje Monster Series The Bride, is the terminal release of the popular series. We got on this spooky train back in 2008 with The Frank, and fittingly The Bride is our final […]

IPCPR 2018: 22 Minutes with Pete Johnson

No trade show coverage is complete without chat with Pete Johnson at his usual place behind the bar in the Tatuaje booth. This year we lucked out and caught Pete on the first day, which was the day following the premier of his passion project, Hand Rolled: A Film About Cigars. So we get started […]

Tatuaje Monster Series The Michael

When The Michael was released, it just didn’t seem like Halloween, much less fall. By the time I got ahold of my box, it was starting to feel sorta fall-ish in Atlanta, but not all that spooky. I didn’t let that deter me from lighting a few of the latest Monster Series up that week. […]

Week in Smoke

Brian’s The Week In Smoke, Issue 112

You may have noticed I’ve been a little quiet since The IPCPR 2017 Complete Digest posted a few weeks back. Sadly, I haven’t been on vacation, well, I was for the last week. It’s that time of year, and I caught whatever crud du jour that was going around. I don’t know for sure, but […]

IPCPR 2017: 13 Minutes with Pete Johnson

One of the interviews I look forward to every year at IPCPR is our annual chat with Pete Johnson of Tatuaje. And it felt like almost no time had passed since our last installment of the Minutes With Pete Johnson series. There he was behind the bar at the back center of the booth, leaning […]

IPCPR 2016: 26 Minutes With Pete Johnson

No IPCPR is complete without another episode in the growing Minutes With Pete Johnson series. This year we met up with a slender Pete behind the bar in his 2016 Best In Show booth. It seemed more like he was tending bar in his shiny new booth than selling cigars. (He was behind the bar […]

Tatuaje Monster Series The Hyde

The spooky season is upon us, and I just happened to pick up a few of this year’s Tatuaje Monster Series The Hyde. Now ordinarily, I’d set these rarities to the side in the humidor and light one up in about a month (or three), but I thought it’d be fun to light one up […]
