Cigar Number 15  !

Tatuaje WCD 127 Limited Edition.

Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano


Filler: Nicaraguan

Vitola (Size): 75/8″ x 52

    Appearance:Wrapped in a Ecuadorian Habano wrapper a very great looking color. There’s an oily and leathery look to it. Solid to the touch and a sweet and rich hay like smells with hints of floral notes. A smooth draw which continued through to the burn producing a long and dense ash..

Final Thoughts:

I must say I didn’t have the opportunity to smoke the Tatuaje WCD 127 when it came out and I am very glad I grabbed it. The WCD 127 Tatuaje Limited Edition is a retail exclusive cigar provided by Tatuaje Cigars to Civil Cigar Lounge in Washington DC. It was a spicy cigar with some complex character. Flavors and aroma continued to develop into a medium strength and an almost medium to full body. An very well made and good value. A effortless smoking experience to the end.

Final Grade 90!

Cigars Number 14!

Crux “Bull and Bear” Cigar.

 Wrapper:Habano Jalapa

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Vitola (Size): 5 1/2″ x 50

    Appearance: We smoke the Crux Bull and Bear in 2016 and now had a new look but same blend. The cigar has a great looking blue fancy band. It’s a very smooth and attractive cigar with a fantastic looking oily sheen wrapper. Keeping to the previous blend the pre-light smell of earthy and sweet tobacco notes.

Final Thoughts:

Packed with more consistent flavors. Full bodied at the end with the flavor and aroma to the match. There’s something new and different about the 2019 Crux Bull when the blend is suppose to be the same. Great burn and construction well balanced and rich and an overall excellent cigar.

Cigars Number 11!

Caldwell Eastern Standard Sungrown.

 Wrapper:Hybrid Mexican Habano

Binder: Ecuador

Filler: Dominican Republic and Mexico

Vitola (Size): 5” x 50

    Appearance: There is a gorgeous slightly oily wrapper with an even brown color. The pre-light smell was clean with some lightly sweet with some wood notes. It was silky smooth to the touch with no soft spots.

 Final Thoughts:

This a well-made and fairly complex cigar that develops all the way down to the nub. It has a very flavorful, long and spicy finish. While full bodied, it is effortless to enjoy and could easily be smoked beyond the nub. It offers hints of creaminess, cedar, and nuts – all played an important role and left a lasting impression. Packed with deep and rich flavors with a long a finish. A good flavor experience that didn’t overwhelm the palate..

Final Grade 90!
