Tatuaje Cigars Inc./Havana Cellars La Riqueza
This little cigar had great eye appeal with a beautiful, smooth looking, evenly colored dark brown wrapper that had some toothiness and silky feel between the fingers. The pre-light nose was light with rich cocoa and wood notes. The cigar had a slight box press from the traditional Cuban-style packaging that added a sense of old-world elegance to the smoking experience. The draw was incredibly smooth and the smoke delivered a generous amount of full and rich flavored smoke to the palate from the first puff to the last. The texture was creamy and the smoke had a lot of white pepper spices when blown through the nose, which eventually lingered on the back end of each puff. It produced an incredibly full and rich luring aroma that filled the air with wonderful woody and cocoa notes. Overall it had great construction with an even burn. This smaller cigar delivered an amazing smoking experience with big rich flavors and aromas. The smoke was balanced on the palate and it had a refined, full taste. Amazing things come in little sizes, and this cigar is a perfect example of that.
