Saints & Sinners 2011 Cigars

This week we are delivering an exclusive overview of Saints & Sinners 2011 Cigars. For those of you who have been living under the rock for the past few months, Pete Johnson of Tatuaje has managed to add another project to his portfolio – Saints & Sinners private social club. The following information was copied from Saints & Sinners ‘Join Now’ section.

For an annual registration fee of $150, each member will receive:

1. Exclusive, one-off products available only to members (select products may not be available for purchase through the S&S webstore)
2. Everyday Tatuaje branded merchandise at the Saints & Sinners discounted club rate.
3. Access to members-only forums, where you can discuss the finer points of cigars, smoking accessories, spirits, and anything else associated with the Saints & Sinners lifestyle.
4. Access to the Pete Johnson video blog. Here, Pete will update members on everything PJHC. Watch Pete as he travels around the world, visiting his production facility in Nicaragua, engages fans on cigar tours, and dishes on anything else he feels his Saints & Sinners family should know.
5. First looks at new cigar blends, swag, as well as insider info on Tatuaje and other Pete Johnson brands.
6. The knowledge that a portion of your annual membership fee will go to an eclectic mix of charities that Pete chooses for their commitment to their particular cause.

One can visit the following link to preview what was included in 2011 Saints & Sinners kit. After the announcement and shippment, many wondered about the blend and thought process behind each S&S label (* excluding regular production obviously). Some probably have not smoked their share and have been patiently waiting for more information to be announced. Well, for those, today is their lucky day. Each photograph contains: Name, Base, Wrapper, Binder, Filler and some, if applicable, Size and Other notes. Remember, ‘smoke ’em if you got ’em.

Tatuaje ‘Anarchy’

- click on photographs - 

Yet another Tatuaje cigar. If I was to describe Tatuaje ‘Anarchy’ smoking experience in one word, I would call it – chocolate. Throughout first two thirds if felt like I was eating a dark chocolate bar. I have yet to smoke a cigar which had such pronounced flavor. To keep up the excitement level, I have continued to rinse my palate with plain water only to be smacked with the dark chocolate again, and again. Other flavors that I have noticed throughout the cigar were: wood, espresso, leather, mild spice, and coffee. One should also appreciate the pigtail cap and Salomon / baseball bat look alike vitola shape. To view and read up more about intricacies of Tatuaje ‘Anarchy’, I recommend visiting the following fellow bloggers: stogiereview, acigarsmoker, toastedfoot.

As for as the ‘Anarchy’ project itself, Abe ‘Ming’ Dababneh (Smoke Inn) took it to another marketing level. There are tons of good quality cigars out on the market but some fail to shine due to lack of creative marketing campaigns. There was an abundance of innovation in collaboration between Abe ‘Ming’ Dababneh and Tatuaje’s Pete Johnson. We have now seen a numerous B&M anniversary releases. Some are very successful, some are less but overall, I have been very pleased with the final product hitting the market.’s mission statement is to continue to share artistic perspective of cigar smoking. Projects like Dirty Rats or Flying Pigs can be taken to the ‘dirty’ extreme with some unique outcomes and representation. Stay tuned for that ! will also attempt to keep up with the ‘hottest’ sellers & releases and continue to make photographs and create pleasing to the eye art. I have both Tatuaje Federal 90th Anniversary 109 and Tatuaje Black Label Petite Lancero resting in the humidor and screaming for photo session. Stay tuned !
