This cigar comes from Cigars Direct. Thanks guys!

A perfect looking cigar with glistening oils. There are no soft spots, it has a beautiful cap and it smells great. It is just begging to be smoked!

Triple Flame!

The flavors do pop but there’s just something weird about it in the beginning. It’s a chalky taste but, thankfully, it isn’t that big of a deal since it quickly fades into the background. On the bright side there is lots of complexity with this cigar.

The main flavors are great. Musty, a hint of spice on the back of my throat, a sweet woodiness that approaches oak and a nice caramel that effortlessly fills up the background. And all of these flavors are jumping in and out, bobbing and weaving. None of the flavors are one-dimensional, not in the slightest.

Without a single bit of trepidation I can say that after smoking just a third of this cigar that this Tatuaje is a great cigar. It’s medium bodied, has a great draw and an even burn. Delicious cigar.

Right after I ashed the cigar the first time I was hit with this blackberry flavor. Damn it to Hell! I did not want to like this cigar since it is just so trendy to drool over every boutique cigar out there. But, I’ve got to say, this is the real deal.

This is a cigar smoker’s cigar. With lots of nuance and complexity it continually gets better and better. For a medium bodied cigar it comes with loads of flavor that I rarely get in any kind of cigar.

HOME RUN!!!
