The “FACE” by Pete Johnson of Tatuaje Cigars


Hello everyone, “Yes” I’m finally back after a promotion at work and a much needed vacation toBoothbay Harbor Maine.  So thus the reason for the stint of no cigar reviews and most of you thinking that Stew has ended his blogging. Not so I say, not so. Besides why would I leave you hanging anyways (LOL)? So now that you know I’m back, lets get to the review shall we!

The cigar I am going to review for you today is the “Face” from the Pete Johnson monster series. Please note that this review will be based on one cigar and one cigar only. Why you ask? Well, I’m sure you know that this cigar is hard to find so I would personally  like to give Barry of a personal shout out for sending me one so I could make this review possible.

  • So with the history behind us, I am now ready to give you my verdict on if it passes the mighty “Stew” test or not.




WRAPPER: Mexican

BINDER & FILLER: Nicaraguan / Nicaragua

Length/Ring: 6 3/8 x 56

Strength: Medium to Full

Price: Gifted



My Observations: This cigar is just plain ugly to look at and a complete success by Don Pepin and Pete Johnson who strived for this look to represent who it was named after that being leather face.  One look and you too will completely agree. The veins are rather large and the wrapper is truly rough and as stated above ugly.

  •  Over all “A” in the grading department because of the look they wanted to achieve.

Cigar Label: Brown that you can smoke through! Yes, you can smoke through it!

Snip: Straight cut.

Pre-Draw: Leathery.


Flavors: The 1st third of this cigar consisted of leather, chocolate, and wood. The 2nd third consisted of chocolate, leather, and coffee. The last third continued with these flavors but seem to kick it up a notch in power.


Draw: Perfect

Burn line: Even.

Liked it: Yes

Recommend it: Yes, if you can find anymore!

Hint: None


Over All



Until Next Time
