When it comes to Tatuaje, the Nicaragua cigar line is as classic as it gets. The company’s focus on Nicaraguan binder and filler blends is unbreakable – this is what they do best – and so this cigar is really a love letter to the country that has given them leaf after leaf of rich tobacco. Of course, by “they” we also mean the Garcia family, headed up by none other than “Don Pepin” Garcia. Don Pepin is the master blender behind My Father cigars and some of the world’s very best blends. Since the beginning, he’s worked closely with Tatuaje founder Pete Johnson to design Tatuaje’s award-winning blends, including the Cabinet Tainos that put Tatuaje on the map in 2004 with a #4 ranking on Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of the Year list.
Part of the secret is using 1st generation Cuban-seed tobaccos, even if they’re grown in Nicaragua. The emphasis on Cuban flavors and methods has been a big part of the Tatuaje philosophy (and the philosophies of countless other cigar companies). Tatuaje is always seeking to find ways to bring the old world into the new when it comes to cigars, and they often succeed.
The Tatuaje Nicaragua cigar is offered in Connecticut Broadleaf, Habano, and Sumatra wrappers. Inside, as you might expect, is the traditional Nicaraguan binder and filler blend. Mostly, people who smoke this cigar report flavors of leather, black coffee, and spice. No matter what you taste, just know that inside, this one is pure Nicaragua.
