I know I haven't written a review for some time now, but I have read your e-mails and listened to the comments from those I have spoken with. 2010 has been a hectic year leaving me precious little time for some of the things I enjoy most; so to all the readers, web-sites, magazines, and news letters I write for, I apologize. That being said, on to the good stuff.
The topic of this review is the Tatuaje - Private Reserve Black Tubo. You may notice that as the background for the photos I used my chopper (another of those things I haven't had much time for). I did this as a tribute to Pete Johnson, owner of Tatuaje, because the first time we met I had been out on it and Pete and I spent some time talking about our shared enjoyment of riding. Pete said the inspiration for the Black Tubo came from a trip he took to, "an island famous for its cigars", which one can only assume is Cuba. While there he was given an un-banded, very rustic looking cigar by a man who had it in his shirt pocket. He later learned that among many of the local cigar lovers is a tradition of rolling their own blends for themselves to suit their personal taste, hence Private Reserve in the name of this cigar. Pete never forgot how much he enjoyed that cigar and the Black Tubo is his tribute to it.
