Tatuaje Skinny Monsters Lancero Sampler Description
Every year around Halloween, Tatuaje fans wait in spooky anticipation for the next release from the limited-edition Tatuaje Skinny Monsters line. With only 666 boxes of the latest monster produced, these highly sought-after tall and skinny Lanceros go quick.
Let’s face it, though—the traditional cigar world often shakes its head at anything out of the norm, such as the fun horror-themed line featured in our Tatuaje Skinny Monsters Lancero Sampler. This is too bad when it comes to Nicaraguan puros as quality as these. Just because a cigar is cultivated through traditional means doesn’t mean it can’t have an amusing, modern theme.
While all these devils utilize a 100% Nicaraguan blend, the wrappers vary, giving each beast its own personality. That said, let’s dig into this scrumptious horror show of 7.5 x 38 cigars. That is if you have the cojones.
This quality sampler contains one each of the following cigars.
Moaning right out of the box in the Tatuaje Skinny Monsters Lancero Sampler is the Frank. But don't worry, he'll do your bidding, even after you torch his head. Frank's suit is a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper that holds an aged blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers and binder. Flavors of cedar, red pepper, coffee, earth, and dark chocolate all come to life once the lightning of your lighter brings him to life. But watch out—this slow-burning medium-full strength creature isn't afraid to heartily slug your palate all the way down as revenge for his stitched together existence.
The Drac wears a dark Ecuadorian Habano cape with a black and blood-red band. Better get your teeth into this guy before he gets his into you. After all, you don’t want to turn into a cigar, do you? Once burning, this leaf goes to work on a Nicaraguan binder and long filler tobaccos to take you on a gothic ride of grass, pepper, and chocolate.
The Drac is the perfect cigar for a road trip to Transylvania. Kidding. Smoke this medium-bodied stick at your next backyard get-together. (Immortality not included.)
Next in the Tatuaje Skinny Monsters Lancero Sampler is the Tatuaje Face. Fear not—the only chainsaw involved with this one is its razor-sharp burn. And you’ll need to look south of Texas for the sweet San Andres Maduro leaf you’ll murder once lighting this killer up. The result is a Nicaraguan puro with flavors of mocha, earth, pepper, and sweetness. If you’re a serial flavor lover, head straight for the psycho with the human flesh-colored band.
“The doctor will burn for you now.”
Perhaps the Jekyll is trying to cover up his dark side with his tan, veiny, oiled-out Ecuadorian Sancti Spíritus wrapper, but you know Hyde can’t be contained for long. Nonetheless, that murderous guy isn’t here yet, so rest easy. Once you get the Jekyll burning, the leaf and aged Nicaraguan tobaccos work together to deliver a frightful medium-to-full-bodied creamy smoke with flavors of white pepper, cayenne, and cocoa.
Next in the Tatuaje Skinny Monsters Lancero Sampler, Jekyll has decided to show his sketchy side, the Tatuaje Hyde. The band is a darker shade of green than the Jekyll to illustrate his creepy ability to transform into Hyde after drinking his potion. Deep inside this cigar, aged Nicaraguan fillers lie in wait, much like the evil side of the Jekyll/Hyde personality. Wrapping everything up is an exotic Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. The burn is slow and even with flavor notes of cinnamon, cream, cedar, and chocolate.
Camp isn’t always fun, but that doesn’t mean a guy needs to head for the first hockey mask and a big-ass butcher knife to settle the score. Instead, wouldn’t it be better to grab a cutter and torch and burn a Skinny Monster to forget the whole thing? "The Jason" uses a dark Connecticut broadleaf Maduro wrapper to tie up the Nicaraguan tobacco blend held hostage at its core. The only way out is through fire. Light this complex cigar up, and you’ll experience what Pete Johnson considers one of his strongest blends.
Next up and ready to play is the Tatuaje Chuck. He’s assured us it’s all fun and games, though that knife behind his back says otherwise. Anyway, we’re sure it’s fine. Just light his ass on fire and show him who’s in charge. Chuck wears a dark as midnight Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro leaf to cover his stash of Nicaraguan filler tobaccos and binder. Get this stick burning, and you’re in for dark chocolate, spice, espresso, citrus, and cedar. Just remember—Chuck always puts up a fight. Make sure to get a nice meal in before trying any hero business.
Wait, what? Someone actually married that murderous little dude? Oh, wait, we see the ax now. There really is someone for everyone. Tiff uses her Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper to conceal a medium-strength blend of Nicaraguan tobacco. Light this evil little lady up, and she’ll show you just how nutty she is with flavors of earth, cinnamon, and, well, nuts.
He says you’re a little late, but better late than never, right? This cigar has waited for you to bring it back to life for what seems like thousands of years. Before they sealed him up in the tomb, they wrapped the Mummy tight in an oily sun-grown Criollo wrapper. This stiff stick is medium-bodied and smooth. Once you raise him from the dead, he’ll reward you with his treasure trove of cedar, leather, cinnamon, and pepper. The burn is straight and even and produces plenty of delicious smoke.
Closing things out in this horror smoke show is the Wolf, a tasty stick best smoked when the moon isn't full. The wolf is dressed in an Ecuador Sumatra wrapper which covers a Nicaragua binder and filler blend. The result is leather, nuts, spice, and sweetness. Make sure not to keep the Wolf waiting in your humidor too long, or he may just claw his way out. Burn him down, and you'll be howling in joy.
Please enjoy the Tatuaje Skinny Monsters Lancero Sampler at your leisure.
