Tatuaje Havana VI

by GoodFellasCigars

Wrapper: Nicaraguan

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan

Country: Nicaragua

Created by Pete Johnson and Pepin Garcia, the Havana is a much smoother blend of spicies than the original Havana. Overall a firm, veiny cigar with a medium brown wrapper. It has a very slow draw with spicy flavors with a hint of pepper. Despite being firm and a slow draw, this cigar fills the room with the scent of a peppery spice and gives off a great deal of smoke. The first third of this smoke had notes of rich tobacco with some wood tones. Getting about halfway through the cigar, the spiciness came in more along with an earthy tone with a little bit of sweetness trying to come in. The ash was firm and white and started to fall when it gets about an inch long. This cigar does however, require a little but more effort to draw and needed touch ups along the way. Most of the time this is enough to ruin a cigar, but the flavors that the last third gives off is well worth the work that it takes to maintain this cigar. The last third really brings out the flavors. The flavors a spicy almond along with hints of a caramel and gingerbread were present. This overall was a great cigar from the Tatuaje we know and love with the only downfall being touch ups need along the way.
