Tatuaje J21

Posted: 26th January 2011 by Shawn in Non Cuban Cigars, Tatuaje

Tatuaje Reserva J21 5×50 For one to look at the dark oily wrapper that adorns the J21, it would be easy to mistake the aged Nicaraguan Corojo ligero for Connecticut Broadleaf – its hard to for me to get over how similar they look and feel.. As for the construction, the cigar is a tad […]

Tatuaje Verocu No. 1 Exclusivo Lado Occidental (West Side) 6 ¼ x 52 In light of being a Tat whore recently, I’ve decided to continue the trend! Like its sister stick, the Zona del Este (which I reviewed here [url]http://www.botl.org/community/forums/showthread.php?t=43795[/url]) It was based on the same Tatuaje Havana VI but also used Ligero in the […]

The latest in Pete Johnson’s meat locker series, this is a robustoesque cigar measuring in […]

Okay, so I’m behind on my reviews and specifically late with this one in particular. I had originally intended for this to have been written up yesterday for Halloween, but due to matters beyond my control I was not able to get to it until today. For all those who regularly look forward to reading […]

Tatuaje Verocu Tubos

Posted: 25th September 2010 by Shawn in Non Cuban Cigars, Tatuaje

Rarely is there ever a day here in late September with a calm breeze, blue skies and few clouds to get in the way of a brilliant sunny fall day, but it just so happens that this is one of those stand out moments. With the daylight falling shorter and the weather becoming slightly cooler […]
