Cigar Review: Tatuaje Series P Miami P1 Corona Gorda

7 Feb 2018

Perhaps our well-informed readers will know of another but, off the top of my head, I can think of only one mixed-filler, hand-rolled cigar made in America: the Tatuaje Series P Miami. Last year, without much fanfare, the cigars began appearing in limited numbers at some Tatuaje retailers.

Via email, Tatuaje owner Pete Johnson describes the cigars this way: “Made in Miami using only picadura from Brown Label Miami. The Ecuador Habano wrapper is the same wrapper on Brown Label. Two binders like everything else we make. Very small production with only one roller making them.”

The cigars are available in two sizes: P1 Corona Gorda (5.6 x 46) and P2 Robusto (5 x 50). The cigars sell for about $6 each in foil-wrapped bundles of 25. I smoked four in the Corona Gorda size for this review.

The cigar features a nipple cap (just like the Tatuaje Black Corona Gorda) and the dark Ecuadorian wrapper extends around the closed foot. About that wrapper, Johnson says the Miami Series P uses the same wrappers as the Brown Label cigars rolled in Miami, which is a mix of the lighter shade original six sizes and the higher priming wrappers used on the Cojonu, J21, and K222 vitolas.

The cigar features medium- to full-bodied flavors with rich espresso, light cedar, black pepper, and cocoa. Additional notes of sweet cream, toast, and charred oak are prominent, especially towards the second half.

Despite being mixed-filler (a combination of long-filler and picadura cuttings from other long-filler cigars), I found construction to more than adequate. Though the draw is perhaps more open and the ash less stable than regular, higher-priced Tatuaje Miami cigars, combustion overall is still good.

I’ve always found the foil-wrapped Tatuaje cigars to be among my favorites and, once again, I’m impressed by a Miami-made, wet-packed Tat. Despite the 100% long-filler Brown Label Tatuajes not being all that more expensive than this mixed-filler offering, I recommend this cigar, if you can find it. The Tatuaje Series P Miami P1 Corona Gorda earns a rating of four stogies out of five.
