Tatuaje has done it again! Add this to the list of fantastic cigars that Tatuaje has released this year. I like full bodied cigars so this one was a real treat. It is made 100% from Connecticut broadleaf. It has a dark Maduro wrapper. It looks very well constructed and was slightly firm to the touch.

The pepper and spice hit you immediately upon lighting. I did not find it to be harsh or overpowering. There were lots of flavors that I noticed in this cigar. It did have an earthy note to it, but I also picked up on a sweet coffee, chocolate taste. It was a pretty consistent cigar throughout the smoke. Once you got to the last third the flavors intensified for a nice finish.

Just like with the Avion 11 I would age these cigars a bit. This cigar would only get better if allowed to age for a few more months! So smoke a few now and enjoy, stash some away and smoke then again in a few months and enjoy them even more!
