Cigar Review: Tatuaje T110

Tatuaje T110

Tatuaje T110

Today’s smoke is the first cigar I have taken a picture of with my new HTC Hero phone. The phone has a 5 mega pixel camera but it still came out a little grainy. I guess I have to play around with it, but it is better then the web-cam I was using in my friends store. I was gifted today’s smoke by two people. One was Tony from smokescore.com and the other was Joe aka jitzy8585 who is cigar aficionado that can be found on various cigar boards and on twitter.

The Tatuaje T110 is a rare cigar with only 200 boxes being made for 1 store in Hawaii. The Tatuaje T110 is a pure ligero smoke that is made in Nicaragua. Despite the fact that the majority of the readers will never smoke one I decided review it anyway and I hope no one minds my self indulgence in doing so.

Cigar: Tatuaje T110
Size: 4.5 x 52 (T110/Short Robusto)
Wrapper: Nicaragua
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua
Strength: Full

Appearance and Construction (19/20): The T110 features a gorgeous looking oily wrapper that is totally flawless. The stems are virtually non existent making this a silkly looking wrapper. There is a slight tooth on the cigar and the cigar offers a classic looking triple cap. The band features the Fleur De Lys with T110 printed to the right of it and Tatuaje to the left of it. . The colors are white with some red, yellow and blue

Flavor & Notes (26/30): Prior to lighting up the smoke I took the time to smell the wrapper which is usually uneventful for me. However on this stick the sweet smell of chocolate was easily identifiable. The draw was pretty uneventful other then some sweet tobacco notes. Upon lighting up the cigar there is a nice spice present similar to a white pepper. As the first third progresses some leather and dark chocolate join the white pepper on this powerhouse. The second third has some peppery spice remaining and the primary notes are coffee beans and leather. The final third of the cigar offers notes of coffee beans and a subtle leather on the finish.

Burn/Ash/Draw (23/25): This big smoke producer burns with only the slightest bit of wave to the burn line. The light colored ash hold fairly well with only the slightest bit of flake. The draw was a little tight on the cigar I smoked for this review but it wasn’t overly annoying.

Overall (22/25): I am glad I had the opportunity to smoke one but to be honest with you while good I wouldn’t go out of my way to track these down. I would howeve but at the same time I wouldn’t rule out trading for them again. It is a nice spicy full bodied smoke, that has a strong nicotine kick to it so I would save these for after a hearty meal if you ever come across them.

    Thanks for reviewing this cigar. Even though it would probably be a “hard to find” smoke, it’s good to read about your experience with it.
