Tatuaje Fausto is the #14 cigar of 2018 on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 list! But be warned: this isn’t a smoke for the faint of heart, or of lung. This cigar has a downright frightening pedigree, and innocent mortals still in possession of their soul should turn back now. Those who are already corrupted, or who are on their way down a sinful path, it’s not too late for you, either.
(Okay, are the goody two-shoes gone? Let’s have some friggin’ fun!)
The Tatuaje Fausto is probably the strongest cigar that the company makes. It’s got a potent Ecuadorian Habano Maduro wrapper and a rich Nicaraguan binder and filler blend. Light it up and you’ll be treated to flavors of white pepper, leather, coffee bean, earth, a touch of dark sweetness. Take your time and savor it – if you puff too fast this one will drag your soul to the Underworld faster than you can say, “Whoa, this one’s got some strength to it!”
The name used to belong to a vintage Cuban brand, but we know it goes back farther than that – much farther. Take a look at the image of Mephistopheles scorched into the Tatuaje Fausto boxes and you’ll know the true origin of this cigar.
The tale of Faust and the Devil goes back many years even before it was captured in popular works in the latter half of the Second Millennium. Stories were handed down, from generation to generation, of Faust (as they called him in Germany), the man who was not satisfied with his life on Earth, or his power, knowledge, or pleasures. He wound up making a deal with the Devil in an attempt to satisfy himself during his life, in exchange for his soul and an eternity in Hell. The story ends many different ways, depending on who’s telling it. Sometimes, he gets saved by intercessionary prayers; other times, he’s taken to the Pit forever.
We’ll leave you to light up and decide where you’re headed in life and beyond. For us, a decent cigar is enough, and our buddies are the only devils we’re really equipped to deal with.
