This is an old review that somehow never got posted when it should have been uploaded.
In 2012 the Tatuaje Monster series finally made it to Europe. Well, only to The Netherlands and only 50 of the plain boxes. These 7¾x47 Churchills are made by My Father cigars.
The ring is simple and the cigar has a closed foot, something I always like. I don’t see a lot of veins. The construction feels good, and the cigar has a silky feel to it. The aroma is strong and reminds me of horses. The cold draw is easy and mild spicy
The herbal, pepper and nutmeg flavors that I taste are strong and spicy on a layer of earthy flavors, more a muddy flavor. After half an inch the mud changes into a pleasant metallic flavor with spicy herbs.
Slowly the cigar gets more herbal with a little licorice on the background. The flavors are very dry. Halfway I taste some nutmeg again with some hazelnut and cinnamon. Slowly some pepper shows up too. After two thirds is dry herbs again but now with the nutmeg and cinnamon.
This cigar lasted me an hour and forty minutes. The draw is fine and the amount and thickness of the smoke are good too. The light ash is reasonably firm. The burn is straight. This was a cigar with an unusual flavor profile.
Would I buy this cigar again? That would be impossible
