Tatuaje Cigars Inc./Havana Cellars Seleccion de Cazador – Miami
A very dark, oily, toothy wrapper that had a big pre-light nose filled with earthy chocolate, spice, and clean barn-like/hay-like tones. The smell on the unlit cigar made it hard to light because it was so enjoyable and rich just smelling it. The pre-light taste was sweet with rich, thick, well-fermented tobacco profiles and more chocolate notes. The cigar was solid to the touch and had an effortless draw that allowed dense clouds of rich smoke to hit the senses with ease. Once lit the flavor profile is what one could assume by looking at it, full on all accounts, rich with hearty earthy, chocolaty spices. From the first puff to the last, the cigar offered an incredibly rich and full aroma loaded with more hot cocoa, mild nuttiness and earthy tones. The burn was slow, extremely even and the cigar smoked incredibly well considering how many thick, rich tobacco leaves were used to make this blend. The body was very full but also very smooth. This cigar had a dominating chocolate quality, especially in the aroma. It stayed lit for a long time when not puffing, and would pick right back up. An outstanding full and rich cigar all around.
