Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Anarchy KAOS

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Anarchy KAOS

The Tatuaje Anarchy KAOS is a cigar that started out great and slowly deteriorated. That first third was great, giving way to sweetened condensed milk, roasted peanuts, zesty minerality, subtle red pepper spice and cedar. But as the cigar progressed, the sweetness dramatically dropped, and eventually led to undesirable char and burnt notes. I'd like to revisit the cigar in 5 to 6 months to see if the cigar will smooth out its rougher edges. But as of now, it's a soft recommend.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Black Label Petite Corona BC

After smoking the Tatuaje Black Label Petite Corona BC, this cigar joins the ranks of Rothchild Maduro. Wonderfully Nicaraguan Criollo with great nasal clearing red/cayenne pepper spice, barnyard stank and meatiness. I can see myself smoking multiples of these in one sitting. Well worth the price point and tasting experience.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje TAA 2020

The Tatuaje TAA 2020 is an enjoyable release with a complex flavor combination of baked goods. The strength settles roughly around the medium mark and I never found my palate overwhelmed. I think Tatuaje fans will be happy with this release and with the approachable profile should bring in other cigar smokers to the brand as well.

Personal Cigar Review: Tatuaje Gran Cojonú Series A

Personal Cigar Review: Tatuaje Gran Cojonú Series A

The Tatuaje Gran Cojonú Series A is an intense cigar that has body and strength. The notes of cinnamon, pepper and chocolate pair well throughout, and the currant and raisin notes at the start really add for a great opening. It has been a while since I smoked a Cojonú, but this delivers what the line is all about.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje ME II Robusto

The Tatuaje ME II Robusto began well, but once the cocoa left it became fairly average and maintained that level of enjoyment the rest of the way. While I probably won't return to this cigar all that often, I would have no problem coming back to it when I'm in the mood for this style profile on occasion. If you're a fan of Tatuaje and the San Andres blends, you're likely to find something here that you enjoy.

Personal Cigar Review: Tatuaje Cojonú 2003 Series L

If you have been a fan of the Cojonu release, you are going to love the Tatuaje Cojonú 2003 Series L and it is definitely a cigar you can smoke now and age. I know I am going to put a handful of these in my humidor to smoke when I want something pronounced and flavorful.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje 15th Anniversary Habano Rosado Oscuro Belicoso Fino

In terms of the actual smoking experience, overall, I enjoyed the profile Tatuaje 15th Anniversary Habano Rosado Oscuro Belicoso Fino. Bolder, more rustic notes of cayenne pepper, white pepper, minerals, sharp oak and cream. Not typically the type of cigar that reminds me of Tatuaje but one worth checking out.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Negociant Monopole No. 3

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Negociant Monopole No. 3

The Tatuaje Negociant Monopole No. 3 is a cigar that had a nice mellow flavor profile along with medium strength. This would be a great morning cigar and one that I think would pair very well with coffee. I'm looking forward to smoking this again in that exact pairing scenario.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje TAA 2015

Factoring in the depth and intensity of flavors, full body and just a well executed version of a Connecticut Broadleaf, this is one of the best offerings of Tatuaje I have smoked.
