Quick Smoke: Tatuaje Fausto FT153

22 Jul 2012

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

This toro (6 x 50) was from the first batch of cigars (box date 7/11) released after the 2011 industry trade show when Fausto was introduced. I was interested to see if time had mellowed this potent smoke. If it did, it did so only slightly. The cigar is still a bomb dominated by black pepper and charred oak, with black coffee and dark chocolate. Construction is perfect, with an easy draw, solid white ash, and even burn. If you’re looking for a balanced, subtle stick, look elsewhere. But when you want a cigar that “goes to 11” (Fausto’s tagline in its ads) even a year later this cigar gets the job done.

Verdict = Buy.
