Tatuaje has quickly become one of the most popular brands available. Launched by Pete Johnson, the buyer for the Grand Havana Room, everything bearing the Tatuaje name seems to skyrocket to the top of the ratings.
Tatuaje Black started as a small batch of cigars produced only for the creator of Tatuaje cigars, Pete Johnson. In 2008, a limited run was produced and sold to the public with amazing results. Boxes sold fast and furiously and this line has now garnered a cult-like following.
The blend starts up strong and never lets up. The strength of the blend is only matched with the balance of the smoke. Draped in an oily Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper, the aesthetics of the cigar are masterful. You can tell great care was taken rolling this cigar. The smoke starts off with a quick burst of pepper that mellows quickly into consistent flavors of cedar, earth, and leather.
