Tasting Notes: I get honey and cinnamon on the body. The foot is a wonderful aroma of vanilla, wood and sweet syrup. The cold draw is firm and reminds me of Lipton iced tea and pretzel. Something about this cigar reminds me of the older versions of the Tatuaje black, which definitely is not the same any more. This is reminiscent of them back when they came in jars. The first third starts with incredible balance. Cinnamon spice, leather, cedar and a duet of both cocoa and vanilla that come and go on different puffs. The second third is similar to the first but the flavors mend a bit. The balance is phenomenal. I get woods, cinnamon, white pepper, and sweet thick maple syrup. I’m so impressed with this little cigar. I don’t always appreciate a firm draw on a cigar but for this cigar it is truly fitting. In the final third the strength picks up slightly. With cinnamon, oak, chocolate, leather and a beautiful nuttiness. Is this going to become my go to daily smoker? Maybe!
