Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Havana VI Verocú Blue No. 1

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Havana VI Verocú Blue No. 1

The Tatuaje Havana VI Verocú Blue No. 1 was enjoyable and at times reminded me of baked goods for Christmas time which definitely held my interest. The last third was a stark departure from the rest of the cigar with darker, toasted earth flavors that didn't harmonize with what was being delivered prior to that. I would smoke the Tatuaje Havana VI Verocú Blue No. 1 again, the flavor profile is balanced and right in my wheelhouse.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Avion Tuxtla

I found the Tatuaje Avion Tuxtla to be the most enjoyable of the Tuxtla offerings. With that, a really good Mexican offering overall. Brought me back to all the past Avions I have smoked, which was enjoyable as well. A good experience. Balanced cigar with great construction and draw. Enjoyable flavor profile. Nice notes of cocoa, espresso, earth and leather.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje 7th Tuxtla

In my opinion, in true, fairly typical fashion, Pete nails the body. There aren't that many good cigars with medium plus body these days, but Pete seems to know how to achieve that and pair it with flavors that compliment it quite well. Even with this said, I still prefer the Habano versions of the Brown Label. But this Tatuaje 7th Tuxtla was neat to smoke for a little change up.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje La Riqueza SE 2022

The first third was awesome, as it's in many ways what I look for and enjoy from a quality Connecticut Broadleaf cigar; nice dankness, barnyard, chocolate, supporting pepper spice. But past the first third, the bitter bite of cedar wood became too overwhelming on the other flavors, leaving the flavor profile more narrow and not as pleasant. So overall, I will pass on this Tatuaje La Riqueza SE 2022.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje T110 Tuxtla

The Tatuaje T110 Tuxtla came out of the gate swinging with some interesting and fuller flavor combinations that kept me on my toes. That complexity seemed to fall off rapidly moving into the second third, eventually becoming linear and flat in the last third with earth being the only standout flavor component. The price point on these is quite reasonable and the time commitment is approachable so I would give the T110 Tuxtla another try to see if the profile was the same or improved.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Cohete Capa Especial

Sometimes you don't need to write three paragraphs of flavor descriptions, and such is the case with the Tatuaje Cohete Capa Especial. Delivering interesting and engaging flavors through the first and second thirds, it was pleasant through the last third but without the same level of flavor balance. I'll happily pick more of these up.

This Tatuaje Cohete Reserva was a great little blast of Broadleaf. Shots of espresso with cojones. I loved the size and flavor profile from start to finish. It had strength, body and flavors. Complex flavors. Very enjoyable with amazing burn and construction. The espresso, oak, leather, earth, pepper and cocoa powder notes were great together. They often are, and Pete delivered on that dark Broadleaf profile.

The manner in which the Tatuaje Cohete currently tastes has all the key components to what should be a good cigar, given some more aging. The profile's rawness in good flavors as well as the oily nature of the cigar typically will mean a more balanced and cohesive flavor profile. I typically don't purchase many cigars these days, but I did buy a box of these. So in that sense, I am equating my words to my wallet.

The Tatuaje T110 Reserva Broadleaf essentially tells me what I already know about Tatuaje. That is, Pete continues to do a fine job of using Connecticut broadleaf, highlighting nice chocolate tones and not making it overwhelmingly earthy. Not his best Connecticut broadleaf by any means, but this is a buy without hesitation.

Team Cigar Review: Tatuaje Fausto The Old Man and the C Culebra

There is something redeeming about a unique cigar like the culebras smoking good. But the fact that the three cigars are quality cigars, and the fact that they happen to be culebras is amazing. I am sure there are plenty of cigar smokers out there that have never smoked a culebra, but with the Tatuaje Fausto The Old Man and the C Culebra, you are getting something of quality with fun presentation.
