Default Tatuaje Nicaragua 7th Capa Especial Review

$7. Cigarbid retail $9.
Tatuaje Nicaragua 7th Capa Especial 5.6" x 46
Pre-light: cedar, light coffee

1st 1/3
Excellent draw, lots of smoke, straight burn, gets some light floral off the foot, reminds me of my first experience of a macanudo cigar.
Creamy smooth subtle complexities, hint of cinnamon, medium to full-bodied smoke, nuts mixed in with spice and dark chocolate.
7th Capa Especial has a nice unique flavor profile though.

2nd 1/3
The second third reminded me of mocha, leather with a sweet spice finish.
There were notes of caramel present followed by spice on the tongue when I inhaled very slowly.
This is one of best small smokes I've had so far
I wish the smoke was more meaty and oily though, could be the small size
Burning cool, burn went a bit wonky, could be my hitting it to fast, enjoying the flavors.

Last 1/3
Smooth smoking with same flavors following, addition of some chili pepper spice.
Overall, I found this one to be too earthy and lacking in other flavor notes for me.
Construction was great except for the uneven burn midway and I would smoke it again, but I would not be tempted to buy a box.
At 5.6" x 46 not worth $7-9.
50 min smoke 7 out of 10

What beats it........

Nice review man. I smoked one yesterday and you are spot on, glad I only bought one for the price tag.
