Tatuaje Anarchy Cigar Review
Cigar Obsession was selected to be among the first in the country to sample the new limited Edition Tatuaje Anarchy. Back in the spring of 2009, Abe Dababneh of Smoke Inn approached his good friend, Pete Johnson regarding the idea. Pete was immediately on board. After about 6 different attempts, they felt Pete and Pepin struck gold with a blend that they were proud of.
The wrapper used is a very special proprietary crop of Ecuadorian Habano leaf that Pepin & Pete personally chose for the project. The binder and filler is Nicaraguan, and blended to perfection. The National Release Party will be held December 10th at the West Palm Beach location of Smoke Inn with both Pete Johnson and Pepin Garcia in attendance. Pre-orders are available through Smoke Inn.
This 6×50 to 6×58 or so perfecto stick offers a thick, hearty dark chocolate wrapper with medium veins, with minor tooth and a rich chocolaty aroma. It features a unique pigtail cap that’s coiled like a snake on the head. First light reveals an easy draw, plenty of rich smoke giving a medium bodied earthy core of flavors with a big black pepper kick that builds on the long finish. The first third really picked up after getting over the foot taper, giving much more smoke than the initial light. Body is medium-full with flavors of a dry milk chocolate and earthy core, with a long deep finish of black pepper without the spice kick. 45 min in the 2nd third begins with a more creamy and buttery flavor of chocolate, while the pepper dies down a touch on the finish. Strength is up there but not full, just a nice kick. Ending at just under the 2 hour mark, the last third provides the same experience as the previous, continuing with a great smoking experience and bold rich flavors without the full strength kick! Thank you very much to Smoke Inn for generously sending samples for review!
