Tatuaje Little Monsters Lil’ Drac Cigar Review

August 21, 2012 · Posted in Cigar Review 

Yesterday, I posted a review of the Tatuaje Little Monsters Frank Jr. and, if you read that review, you’ll know that I really liked that cigar. Today, I’m going to review the Lil’ Drac, which is the kid of the Drac.

But before that I have to say that I don’t get why these were released at the beginning of the summer. The summer? Yeah, that’s scary. Didn’t matter though because these things are selling really quickly. Still, the ambiance is all off.

A short, veiny torpedo with a slightly darker than normal brown wrapper with a couple of black splotches. This cigar is slightly oily and slightly soft to the touch.

Light oak notes with an ash flavor tinged earthiness. Even though the flavors are pretty good they aren’t that strong. Honestly, this isn’t starting off great. It’s not that the cigar is bad it’s that the flavors just aren’t strong.

While the light oak is still present there is also this soft spice flavor that is starting to come through. It’s a pretty simple flavor profile and even though there’s nothing wrong with it this cigar just isn’t that exciting.

The final third did change a little bit towards sweetness. It’s a deep sweetness, kind of like coco, and is a good mix with the oak flavor.

Medium bodied with a good draw and burn. My major problem with this cigar is that the flavors aren’t very strong. It’s also a pretty simple cigar. Overall, not one of my favorite Tatuaje Little Monsters.

    Interesting – several reviewers have said that – that it reminds them of the original Drac (of course), but that includes this cigar not being that good.

    I was able to buy 1 box of the Lil Monsters … still resting. But can’t wait to try them! Great review!
