cigar review: Tatuaje churchill

Cigar: Tatuaje Churchill
Rating: 90
Price: $4.50


I repeat wow. I held back because of the hype but some times the hype is true this cigar is mild enough to be approachable by the masses but has a full bodied finish that will make you wish your fingers were skinnier.

At adress the flavor is woody and nutty with a smooth even draw and mild undertones of spice and its flavor is consistent untill the last third. And then it transforms into a deep earthy spicy peppery dance of flavors on the tounge.

I will usually pass up a natural wrapper and opt for the richer maduros but this as exception that deserves both the massive response from the market and a place in any humidor.

This cigar is exact proof of the new breed of cigar massive internet talk and lots of communication from the makers with the cigar smoking masses has lead to a cigar that really does have a bit of something for everyone.

I’ve had a lot of talk with guys about the new economy vs the old and a lot of the big brands like ashton and padron who have a long history making great smokes but they are much like ford and gm comparative to the more market reponsive honda and toyota. I know this is a cigar review and not a soapbox so I’ll get back to the point the smaller newer nimbler makers who talk to the smoking public and make smokes that people love are the reason great cigars like the tatuaje are commanding space in every good cigar shop and the bigs are actually having to change from the tried and true formulas that are good but keep selling on loyalty not innovation.

But I digress no matter what you smoke no matter what your budget buy the tatuaje. Give in to the hype. This is a smokers delight and you deserve the pleasure.
