picked this up for my second cigar at Grants today and thought I’d review it. I know it doesn’t meet the criteria but I’m thinking in my tough economic times, I have to relook at the standards i’ve set. But for now, we’ll just discuss the cigar.
Construction is good. Non veiny , chocolate colored wrapper on this Tatuaje maade cigar from Pete Johnson. Aroma on the prelight is typical of Tatuaje and once I took a draw, I picked up typical full bodied flavor and taste.
After the first third I picked up espresso flavors that rolled into a heady roasted coffee taste with earthy undertones. I should add that I’m sick right now so my palate is a bit off.
Overall a good cigar but I still prefer La Riqueza. I have a Tatuaje Conoju in my humidor for the blog I plan to smoke once I get some good scotch 🙂
It was nice to see Chris at Grants, he poured me a littleof one of his favorite grappas that had an interesting taste if you’re not a grappa drinker OR new to the drink. I’ll share later.
