Quick Smoke: Tatuaje Havana VI Verocu No. 9

27 Sep 2009

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief take on a single cigar.

Tatuaje Havana VI Verocu No. 9

From the first puff, this Nicaraguan puro displays all the nuance and depth of a Michael Bay film. That’s about what I was expecting given the hearty pre-light notes of cocoa and raisin and the appearance of the dark corojo leaf. But the Verocu No. 9 (4.5 x 49) quickly settles into a medium-strength, full-bodied profile of coffee beans, dark chocolate, and nutmeg. Sold exclusively at Holt’s Cigar Company for $130 per box of 20 or $36 per 5-pack, this Pete Johnson creation would have been an easy recommendation if not for its occasional bitterness and surprisingly frequent burn problems.

Verdict = Hold.
