It has been so long since I’ve posted that I almost forgot how to do it! I apologize for my absence, but things have been incredibly busy with work and family that it’s been hard to find time to just sit, smoke and review.
Today, I was able to enjoy the Tatuaje Havana VI Nobles. Here are the cigar’s details:
- Size: 5×50 (Robusto)
- Wrapper: Habano style
- Binder: Nicaraguan
- Filler: Nicaraguan
- Strength: Medium
First and foremost, this is a great looking cigar. It appeared to be very well constructed with just the right amount of give as you squeezed it. The wrapper was oily and complimented by the simple, red Tatuaje band. I used my bullet to punch through the triple cap. The light wasn’t perfect, but I didn’t have to touch it up. The draw was a little tight and I think that had something to do with the lack of smoke production. As I settled into the first third, I sensed some mild leathery and woodsy notes. There was a lot of flavor, but the strength was only medium bodied. I was impressed with the ash as it held on nice and tight until I tapped off around the beginning of the second third.
The second third experience was a little strange. It seemed that each time I picked up a nice dark cocoa note, the next puff would be…well…off. I’m not sure how to describe it. Maybe bitter is the right word. And this happened throughout the rest of the cigar. It just wasn’t consistent in delivering tasty flavors. I would be impressed by one puff only to be let down by the next.
Now this is not to say that I won’t recommend this cigar. I have four more of these and they’ll sit in my humidor until I get the urge to try one again. Maybe next time around they will have changed.
