Default Tatuaje T110 Review

*Warning! NFG review ahead! Proceed with caution!*

I was lucky enough to get my hands on a 5'er of the new Tatuaje T110 in a recent box split.

THE BACKGROUND
The T110 is a limited release cigar made for a shop in Hawaii. In all my searches I haven't found the name of the shop they were made for, just "a shop in Hawaii"! The email address for the shop owner is connected to a supermarket chain, Foodland. This is an all Nicaraguan Ligero cigar in a 4'5" x 52RG size. Cigars were released at $10.00 per stick or $225.00 for boxes of 25, only 200 boxes were made.

THE LOWDOWN
I poured a rum and coke and headed out to the man cave. This cigar cut easily with my Credo scissors and I decided to use the softer flame of matchsticks to light this one as opposed to my usual torch, not sure why - I just did. This lit easily with about 3 matches and gave off billows of smoke on each draw, this one was very open - verging on too open at times.

The first inch of this cigar was loaded (loaded!) with pepper! I haven't been a big pepper fan but lately I like cigars that have the pepper on the front end and then mellow, which this one did. The pepper gave way to earth and spice. The flavors were very 'flavorful', but at the same time quite smooth.

This little guy packs quite a punch... half way in and I was quite lightheaded. By the time I was done I had to just sit still for a couple of minutes and enjoy the buzz.

THE WRAP UP
If you can get your hands on some of these I suggest you do. I know a lot of folks are sick of chasing all these limited release sticks but sometimes they are worth it. This cigar has great flavors but was never harsh and if you love the full bodied smokes this one will do the trick.

Thanks Mark, I liked that one as well!

I take 25-50 pics when I do a review and I usually luck up and get a 1-2 nice ones! Law of averages, I guess.

Nice review.

I found the T110 to be a complex powerhouse. I tasted fresh jalapeno or serrano in that first "smack you in the gob" inch, and after my mouth had become used to the spice it mellowed to savory roast game and herbs, garnering a woodsyness with hints of cream near the end. I'm going to love to see how these age.

Great review - thanks to this and TheBeard's comments I decided to snag a 5er of these. Looking forward to them. Will probably let 4 of them sit for a while to age a bit.

Nothing against you here AJ, but I'm just wondering why I see comments like this about the "new" T110's? Nothing changed about these cigars, nothing. They were rolled a few months later is all...

Can you provide any info on why they might be different from the OR? Not trying to call you out or anything, I'm honestly just curious as I've seen other people make the same comment.

I must have missed the thread - where is the discussion of new ones coming out? When are they expected?

Will they be more widely available - ie not limited to 200 boxes and 1 retailer?
