Tatuaje Anarchy Apocalypse Cigar Review

This 5.25×48-52 perfecto stick features a dark chocolate mottled wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, a few small imperfections, a snake coil or cinnamon bun pigtail, light pack, slight oil sheen, firm even feel and rich musty damp barnyard aroma. This is the 5th microblend exclusively for Smoke Inn. First light reveals a slightly snug draw, to be expected with the tapered tip, giving medium-full bodied flavors of a deep musty earth, chocolate and slight peppery coffee on the long finish. The first third quickly opens up to a perfect draw with copious amounts of smoke showing much the same flavors but adding a sweetness and thick chewy bread quality to the body. At the 1/2 way point flavors have come up to medium-full again but have lost much of the complexity, staying with just a creamy textured smooth damp earth through the long finish. I had to give it a touchup but that may be attributed to this being a pre-release, very young cigar. Strength is starting to ramp up slightly, giving a bit of a buzz. Ending at 55 minutes the last half brought back some of the coffee, mixing well with the smooth earth. These are exclusive to SmokeInn and will be released mid-December 2012 in very limited quantities.

    Video is private like dgrambo said. Also it isn’t on Youtube. Usually I see it there before coming on to your site.

    Hey Bryan. we want to see this review please.

    Nice review! I think age is the major factor here. When the Anarchy first came out, I was not impressed. After just 4 months, it was a totally different cigar (in a good way), and after about 9 months it was just excellent. If the blend is similar (as Abe has stated), then I’d expect these to follow suit and improve a lot with age. I know I’m in for a box :)

      I know exactly what you mean. I have a few in my humidor right now. I am waiting to smoke them next summer. I want to keep them aging for an extra 12 months before I smoke them. :)

    I, like you, loved the original Anarchy, but I must say I was a bit let down by this one. I mean it was good, but for the price and the hype it was a bit of a let down.

    • EddieJH

      Did you let it age? That is usually the problem, especially if the cigar is fresh out.

  • pedro849

    not having tasted the original Anarchy, it’s a very good cigar. I’m just getting into Tatuajes and i really like the flavors and the strength of the cigar. Does anyone know if this is a one time production?

  • Dylan

    Hoping to try this someday…
    thanks for the review, Bryan

    This cigar completely kicked my ass. It made me a little sick to my stomach and I am not going to sugar coat it… I threw up. I really think the problem was that I did not let it age enough. That’s why I am waiting until next summer to smoke the rest that I have.
