Quick Smoke: Tatuaje Black Lancero

18 May 2014

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.”tatuaje-black-sq


The Tatuaje Black Lancero has come in a few different packages, from “The Old Man and the C” (culebra/lancero pack) to a New York/New Jersey retailer exclusive (a show of support for the region in the wake of Superstorm Sandy). This particular one comes from the recently released Tatuaje Lancero sampler, featuring 10 different Tatuaje blends each in a classic format (7.5 x 38). The result is a creamy, nuanced, medium-bodied cigar with nuttiness, cocoa, and just a bit of spice. I always measure Tatuaje Blacks against the original ceramic jar release, which is one of the finest cigars I’ve ever smoked. Against that high bar, this doesn’t quite stack up. Still, it’s a well-made, enjoyable cigar that’s easy to recommend.

Verdict = Buy.

    There is a huge spicy flavor with a woody undertone and a slight hint of cauliflower in this cigar. Spice is great overall.
