Tatuaje Tattoo Torpedo

Tatuaje Tattoo Torpedo. Ecuador Habano wrap with Nicaraguan filler. Cut ok, at a slant on the torpedo tip. Decent build quality. Even dark color, slightly oily. A few pronounced veins. Good draw pre-light and during the first half. Flavors of bitter dark cocoa and black pepper on the intake. Woodsy earthy exhale. Marbled, mostly clean ash that falls quick at an inch, suggesting a short-leaf fill. The taste mellows a third the way in, becoming more herbal, losing its touch of sweet. A decent value smoke that encourages me to try the wider gauges in this line.

From the company:

"This is one tattoo you certainly won’t regret. The buzz has been flying over the reintroduction of the Tatuaje Tattoo series, which originally appeared in 2011 in a limited edition version. The cigar was massively popular, and for good reason, a great blend without the boutique price tag. There is no question why the new Tattoo should be any different, seeing as how it comes with an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper and an enticing mix of Nicaraguan filler leaves. Medium bodied and bursting with notes of cocoa, leather, pepper and a slight sweetness. To Tatuaje, all we have to say is this: welcome back."
