Tatuaje Fausto FT127

Vitola: FT127
Length:  5.5 Inches

If you enjoy a full bodied smoke, you cannot miss this cigar just released by Tatuaje.  This cigar is the same blend of a cigar Pete Johnson created in 2009, the T110 or Thermonuclear.  Pete Johnson originally made this cigar as a joke because it was so strong.  He only released 200 boxes in Hawaii and what he thought was a joke turned into a huge success.

The Fausto, as it is now called, will be released in four sizes;

* FT127 (5 x 54)
* FT 140 (5.5 x 52)
* FT153 (6 x 60)
* FT166 (6.5 x 48) 

The original T110 was a smaller cigar so it packed quite a punch, but by making these cigars bigger Tatuaje was able to keep the strength of the original blend but not have it be as overpowering as the original.  Now don’t get me wrong this is still a strong cigar, but to people who like full bodied cigars, it is smokable.  

When you first light this cigar you immediately get that strong peppery taste.  After about the first third of the cigar that mellows out a bit and the flavors of the cigar come through.  This is a very rich cigar with a hint of bitter coffee (which I love!) and almost an earthy oak taste.  The flavors are rich and prominent.  When you get to the last third of the cigar the spiciness comes back for a powerful peppery finish.  I would definitely say that this is an after dinner cigar.  After having smoked this cigar, with my experience, I believe that this cigar will age very well!  So buy extra and forget about them for a few months.
