Take a look at the gorgeous Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper on the Tatuaje Negociant Monopole cigar, and you might think you’re holding a Davidoff, if you didn’t see the band. It’s a gorgeous light brown, almost blond, color that just begs to be sniffed deeply, cold drawn, and lit up.
Inside you’ll find something a bit different for Tatuaje – instead of the usual signature blend of purely Nicaraguan tobaccos, there’s a double binder that includes a Mexican San Andres leaf. The result, however, isn’t crazy spicy. Instead, you mostly get the breakfast flavors you might expect from such a bright colored cigar. Your puffs will have the pleasant flavors of honey, tea, and even a bit of buttery toast. The Tatuaje Negociant Monopole is a friendly cigar, to be sure.
There’s only one question left: what the hell is that name about? Well, in French winemaking, a negociant is one who takes grapes, wine, or other produces from a vintner and then makes their own products. So, if you don’t have your own vineyard, that doesn’t mean you can’t get into the wine game, too.
In fact, it goes for cigars as well! Companies like Tatuaje and others often source tobacco from some of the best fields in the world and then roll up cigars in different facilities. So many of the best properties for growing things like tobacco and grapes are already spoken for, and the Creator ain’t making any more of them. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!
