Quick Smoke: Tatuaje Exclusive Series TAA 51st

12 Jul 2019

A couple times each week we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

I’ve found another cigar with a Mexican San Andrés wrapper that I like. With Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos, it’s a rich, creamy smoke with chocolate and espresso overtones and none of the dirt taste I often associate with the San Andrés leaf. In addition to the wrapper, the band is also a major departure from Tatuaje’s past exclusives. This limited edition of 60,000 sticks—Tatuaje’s ninth for the Tobacconists’ Association of America (TAA)—comes as a robusto (5 x 52) with a retail price of about $12 each. This is one I highly recommend.

Verdict = Buy.

    Hey George,
    I thought this cigar had a very old school take on the wrapper. It was enjoyable but was not as refined as many other cigars using San Andres nowadays. It had that “gritty” quality imo. I liked the cigar but didn’t feel the need to buy another one at the asking price.
