Tatuaje Havana VI Nobles
5 x 50 - Natural - Single
Tatuaje Havana VI cigars are produced under the direction of renowned master blender, Jose Pepin Garcia, in a selection of traditional shapes. Patiently made by hand in Señor Garcia's Nicaraguan factory, the cigars are blended to impart the flavor and aroma of fine, medium-bodied Cuban cigars. Each Tatuaje Havana VI Nobles cigar comprises the most select Nicaraguan long-filler and binder tobaccos seamlessly rolled in an attractive Nicaraguan wrapper that's finished with a traditional, Cuban-style triple-cap.
Notes of red pepper, wood, and dark cocoa, but they re all too rustic and the red pepper spice overwhelms everything else during the first half. Medium-to-full nicotine. 87 points. The 4x40 Verocu No. 5 is so much better!
Good medium smoke, with excellent burn. Not too complex but tasty and well-balanced, showing notes of dark chocolate, wood, and walnut skin. Paired well with a double stout, but black coffee owerhelmed the flavors. I seemed to have appreciated the taste better after leaving the second and third stogies rest at around 63% RH; of the two, the stick I took out of the cello became tighter, particularly at the nub, and so did the draw. 88 points
Just smoked one of these ROTT and was pleasantly surprised. Solid medium, maybe lower side of meduim-full with nice oily nutty/cocoa/leather/tobacco flavor, and has a nice much fuller finish that consists of leath/earth and red pepper. Fairly complex in the way the flavors mingle, but not much evolving as you burn down. Burn was good, draw was great, overall a great cigar at a great price. Plus the aroma was fantastic!
