REVIEW NOTES

Gotta say that this is the first Tatuaje I've found to be less than excellent, even disappointing. Although smoke output was heavy and body/mouth feel was full, the construction had quite a lot of problems and required 5-6 fixes. I kinda like tinkering with my cigars as part of the experience but this was too much, and unexpected. Flavor is good, but not scrumptious like others in the same price range (esp by AJ and Garcias). I found the two I smoked one-dimensional and lacking the usual Tat/Garcia richness, depth of flavor, length of finish, and certainly complexity, as the competition. Since I can imagine these shortcomings mellowing as they age, I will revisit for comparison sake after they've had more time in the humi. I got these as a pre-order for $4.40 per stick and within a few weeks it went down to just over $3 - not unexpected but a bit faster than usual. Given the quality of other offerings by Tatuaje and similar brands, I probably will not smoke these again. Marketed as the 'affordable Tatuaje', I actually would not even recommend or gift them as an intro for this category or brand as I favor Havana VI, Tattoo, Ambos Mundos, Cabaiguan, and Casita Criolla - all well worth the extra buck if necessary.
