Quick Smoke: Tatuaje La Vérité Churchill 2009

3 Apr 2016

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.”

Still the most recent La Vérité release (a new one is expected this year), the second single vintage project from Tatuaje was widely thought to be a step up from the original 2008 release. The classic-looking double corona burned flawlessly, drew properly, and produced ample smoke. The flavors, however, seem to be less complex and interesting than I remembered with light earth, cocoa, hay, and a slightly metallic taste. I look forward to trying the next edition of what Pete Johnson once called his “most serious project to date,” but I doubt I’ll go out of my way to acquire any more of this vintage, which was originally offered five years ago.

Verdict = Hold.
