Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano
Size: Robusto 5.0 x 50
Originally released in 2011 as limited edition, box-pressed lancero, this Tattoo is a new blend. The original stick had huge following due to it’s flavor packed profile and low price. There was a ton of hype leading up the release of the Tattoo and for good reason, a boutique brand like this normally commands double the price. The wrapper is a deep chocolate color with well defined leaf markings. The band is elegantly done with a blood red background, gold borders and white lettering. A cold draw starts with full earthy flavor and a hint of black pepper. Cold draw continues with full earthy flavor and a hint of black pepper.
Overall this is one of the best sticks released so far in 2014. This is a great medium blend, perfect for new smokers. With such a low price point it would be a great everyday smoke. I want to thank Joe from Baxter’s Cigars (@BaxtersCigars), in Phoenix, for recommending I try this cigar.
