Quick Smoke: Tatuaje Black Tubo

7 Aug 2016

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


Released in 2009, this cigar had the better part of the decade to rest. It was the second Tatuaje Black Label (said to be Pete Johnson’s personal blend), following the original, now somewhat mythical, Corona Gorda jar release. The torpedo-shaped cigar features a good bit of black pepper combined with paper and bread. Not as full-bodied as more recent Black Label Tatuajes, it is lighter with more straightforward spice. I’ve smoked quite a few Petit Lanceros and Corona Gordas recently, and although the Black Tubo is enjoyable, the more current vintage Tatuaje Black cigars are smoking better.

Verdict = Hold.
