Quick Smoke: Tatuaje Black Petite Lancero

7 Jan 2018

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.”illusione-singulare-2014-sq


Tatuaje’s Black line, sometimes referred to as Pete Johnson’s personal blend, has come in many shapes and sizes since a 2007 debut limited release of Corona Gordas in ceramic jars. In 2010, a Petit Lancero (6 x 38) format was introduced as a store exclusive with a run of just 5,000 cigars (later it was added as a regular release). In 2016, the line was expanded and, at the same time, the Petit Lancero packaging was updated (with boxes of 20). The Nicaraguan puro is medium-bodied with oak, cream, leather, pepper, and cinnamon spice. The cigar is well-constructed, balanced, and enjoyable, though lately I’ve been finding that this blend actually is best in some of the larger ring gauge formats.

Verdict = Buy.
