Tatuaje Cigars Inc./Havana Cellars Seleccion de Cazador
A large cigar that had a menacing appearance with a dark oily wrapper. The pre-light smell was enough to engage the senses for some time before lighting; rich cocoa, fermented tobacco and deep hay-like notes. Once lit, a rich aroma immediately filled the air with subtle spices, cocoa powder and earthy tobacco notes. A white peppery spice quickly intensified especially when retro-haling the smoke through the nose. The smoke was dense and creamy on the palate with a chewy texture. The cigar had an incredibly smooth draw and easily provided a lot of smoke to the palate. This cigar could be left in the ashtray unattended and you could easily pick it right back up without relighting. The burn was slow and even while the cigar continued to gain body strength as it was smoked with a long and full flavored finish. It had a great rich aroma from beginning to end. An extremely well made cigar that is sure to leave a lasting impression.
