Tatuaje Tattoo by Pete Johnson

This is one tattoo you certainly won’t regret.

The buzz has been flying over the reintroduction of the Tatuaje Tattoo series, which originally appeared in 2011 in a limited edition version. The cigar was massively popular, and for good reason, a great blend without the boutique price tag. There is no question why the new Tattoo should be any different, seeing as how it comes with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and an enticing mix of Nicaraguan filler leaves. Medium bodied and bursting with notes of cocoa, leather, pepper and a slight sweetness. To Tatuaje, all we have to say is this: welcome back.

The Tatuaje brand is incredibly highly-rated, and features a huge variety of cigars. Shop them all here

Great everyday cigar
I heard about these Tattoo cigars from a guy at a local cigar tasting. He said it was his "go to" cigar. I bought a few in the store that night. They burned well, tasted good and were a great size. I just recieved my second box.

You must get this cigar
I love this cigar. These can be smoked all day long. No afterburn of the mouth. Smooth and delicious from beginning to end. The texture is like a fine hotel pillow. The burn is even. There was no down time while smoking this - I just wanted to keep puffing away. I would compare this to many very high end cigars.

Every day stick with good flavor
Good value stick. A nice way to smoke something from Pete Johnson without breaking the bank. I found the flavor and smoke output to be nice. If you could find a 5 pack you may find a decent cigar you could smoke every day.

Not so good
Couldn't get a decent draw from any of the cigars in the 5 pack I got. I actually snuffed out 4 of them in disappointment by fussing so much with them I couldn't tell what they tasted like. If my name was on these cigars, I'd be embarrassed.

One of the better small sticks
Excellent small stick for a 20 to 30 minute break or drive. Consistent cut, light and draw. Relatively simple flavore with a consistent, woodsie, bittersweet tobacco taste throughout the burn. Enough flavor and strength to satisfy and plenty of smoke. Excellent value.

Awful Construction!
As with all Tat's, construction is the worst! Only able to smoke about 10%, like 5-or 6 outta whole box of 50. The rest were so tight and hard you could use them as nails. Don't know why but seems to be a problem thru whole Tat. line. Seriously, I know when I take one out of the box and squeeze it, rock hard equals no smoke. They don't know this at the factory?? Really? I just smoke them, they roll them. They should know but think'n they don't care. WORST BOX PURCHASE EVER!! ps..the 5 or 6 I was able to smoke were good...good luck!

The Tat Tattoo is a phenomenal smoke. I would recommend to any that likes a medium body cigar full of flavor with a nice mix of flavors. Glad they are back, my favorite is the Caballero Robusto

Tatuaje Tattoo
I was disappointed in this cigar since I like most other Tatuaje cigar brands. Lacks the taste and quality construction.

Tattoos are a flavor bomb

Great Value smoke!
Tattoo is one of my favorites, regardless of price. Then, you add in that it costs around half of what most other great smokes cost... If you haven't tried it, you should, and if you have, you already know.

Perfect Smoke Anytime
I was given (2) of these GREAT sticks at an Expo. Immediatly, purchased (5) more. Consumed those and just placed an order for (5) more. My next box will definitely be Tatuaje Tattoo. Since the new tobacco tax in CA, I buy nothing over $10. VERY hard to beat this most pleasurable smoke. Price Perfect!

My new Favorite
My wife got me a couple for my birthday and I enjoyed every inch...I now have 50 opportunities to enjoy this fine cigar. They are just delicious and burn so well. The aftertaste and arms are phenomenal. Mr. Johnson is right up there with Mr. Garcia and Mr. Gomez in making great cigars. Another 50 count box may be in the works.

as a long term cigar smoker I have (presently) reduced my favorites to two and Tatuaje Tattoo is one of them.

Customer Testimonials
This might be the best kept secret in the cigar world. I'm a full guy, but if I'm in the mood for an early Saturday morning medium, smooth smoke, this is it. Great 5 buck stick by Mr. Johnson.
SJ of Tatum, TX
This is what I think of when I'm thinking "Yard Gar". It has just enough character to keep you going and is wallet friendly. Box of 50?! Out of the question, but a 5pk or two every now and then wouldn't be bad.
WG of Bossier City, LA
This is the best $5.00 cigar I have ever had. Tons of smoke and smooth. You cannot go wrong having this cigar in your humidor.
BH of Charlotte, NC
So all in all, This is one of those cigars that is just really good for the money. If you're stuck on Padron, try this. With that deflating comment, now I would like to tell you why this is better than any other $5 Padron or Fuente you're going to smoke. The first couple times you smoke it, you're going to wonder if they got the pricing wrong with this cigar. It has the nuances of cigars that cost a few bucks more. It is a Tatuaje, ergo it's a Pete Johnson, ergo it's a Don Pepin (My Father) cigar. It is Tatuaje at the very core. Take all the stuff Tatuaje cigars are hyped for, and strip all the fancy complexity away from his other blends, and all the simplicities will sum up to this cigar. It is still characteristic Pete/Pepin with the great combo of pepper and cream. A thick profile with nuances of the fancier Tatuaje/My Father cigars makes this $5 stick enjoyable and helps it to stand out from the rest. Obviously it's not going to match the complexity of the higher end models, but if you want to get out of the rut of the "domestic beers" of the cigar world (aka Padrons, Macanudos, Fuentes) and want to try the crafts, the boutiques, this is a good starting point.
Wow! What a pepper flavor bomb. And only 5 bucks. No wonder they are out of stock. When they come back in, you better run and grab yourself some. I had the robusto. Unbelievable.
This is a great smoke. Not to strong or mild, a good medium smoke. Went great with a single malt.
