After the success of the little monster serie sampler Pete Johnson decided to release another sampler with the six first Tatuaje Monster releases in a shorter size but with the original ring gauge, the Tatuaje Pudgy Monsters with an added new release Chucky and Tiff. I will be reviewing the complete sampler in the next few weeks.
The second cigar from the sampler is the Pudgy Monster Drac, a 5×52 torpedo with a shiny dark wrapper. The cigar is made from Nicaraguan tobacco topped with an Ecuadorean Habano Maduro wrapper. The aroma reminds me of a barnyard and the construction feels great. The cold draw is great and a bit peppery.
First flavor I taste is coffee with pepper. It changes to wood with a little sweetness and a little red pepper on my tongue.
Halfway I taste wood, the sweetness is gone and the pepper changed into white pepper.
The smoke is white, thick and plentiful. The draw is great, not too tight and not too loose. The ash is nice silver gray and firm. The burn was a tiny bit crooked at the start but corrected itself. The cigar isn’t very dynamic but still flavorful and the smoke time is about 75 minutes.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, if that was possible.
