SERIES REVIEW: Pete Johnson 2010 Pre-Releases

Today I am announcing a new, very exciting series review project for Crooked Burn. For some of my long-time readers, you'll recall that, back in March, I did a series review of the full line of the (then newly-released) El Triunfador from Pete Johnson. I had a great time smoking all of the different sizes and really getting to know that blend. This series review will differ in that it won't be all cigars in the same line, but rather all new cigars from the same manufacturer. I am lucky enough (truly I believe that I am, and am humbled by it) to have in my possession most, if not all, of the new releases for next year from Pete Johnson. Before you ask, no. I don't have any samples of the ever-hyped new Halloween stick. I have to wait just like most everyone else. But what I do have is just as exciting to me.
Below is a list of the sticks I am going to be reviewing in the next two weeks
  • Ambos Mundos Grande No. 1 5 1/2 x 56  Habano
  • Ambos Mundos Grande No. 2 5 1/2 x 56  Sumatra
  • Tatuaje Havana VI 5 1/2 x 56 Gordito
  • El Triunfador 5 7/8 x 54 #7
  • Tatuaje Seleccion de Cazador 5 5/8 x 46 7th Natural
  • Tatuaje Seleccion de Cazador 5 5/8 x 46 7th Reserva (Broadleaf)
  • Petit Tatuaje Reserva - 4 1/2 x 32 (Broadleaf)
  • Tatuaje Petit Cazadores Reserva - 4 x 40 (Broadleaf)
  • Tatuaje Havana VI Verocu No. 5 - 4 x 40 
    All of my pre-release Tatuaje sticks come courteously from Dan (NHCDAN on twitter) owner of New Havana Cigars and sponsor of The Crooked Burn. A HUGE thanks to him as always for giving me the chance to smoke these sticks early, and a HUGE thanks to Pete Johnson for letting me post these reviews before the cigars hit the market. All of the cigars in this series review are not in stock at New Havana Cigars yet, nor are they available for sale. So please, my fellow BOTLs, do not bombard him with emails/phone calls looking to buy/get one to review.

    As always, thanks for reading.
