Tatuaje The Mummy Cigar Review
This 7.75×48 stick features a dark brown slightly mottled wrapper with a soft dry feel, even spongy pack, a couple medium veins, tight seams, triple cap, closed foot and rich cedar aroma. First light reveals a snug draw with decent smoke output showing medium bodied flavors of a deep peppery earth and wood. The first third mellows to a mild-medium pepper and sweet wood with a short finish, really underwhelming for such a hard to get hyped cigar. 40 minutes in at the 1/2 way point, performance is perfect with a razor sharp burn, ash holding for a couple inches at a time and a good draw. Flavors are pretty plain and mild, dropping most of the sweetness and pepper just leaving a smooth wood. The last third showed no further changes, keeping the perfect construction and proving to be very consistent all the way down ending at 1:20. Thank you very much to viewer Mike Robbins for generously sending this in for review!
