Default Tatuaje Black Corona Gorda

Vitola: Corona Gorda 5 5/8 x 46
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Sun Grown Criollo Estelí
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua

Prelight aroma is sweet and quite floral.
Look is fine, not super pretty, with roughish wrapper, closed foot and 'nipple' cap.

I like much of the Tatuaje line. This is the 2013 reissue of the Tatuaje Black jar. A strong taste of leather and spice/pepper, with some chocolate. Maybe some fruit undertones. Spice hit early and reoccurs throughout the stick. Smoke is thick, full and white.

Not sure if it lives up to the reputation of the original. I would go so far as to say I might like the Black lancero equally (although I do love lanceros generally.)

I smoked two - the first was easily better than the original on release, in my opinion. The second was not. How's that for being non-informative.

I did find the taste similar to the original, but the new wrappers look much nicer than the originals.

I've had one black back when I ran into Pete at Holts in Philly back in 2010. Haven't had one since.
