Review Notes: The entire Tatuaje has been getting a lot of press in the last few years. All Nicaraguan tobacco with Cuban-style rolling done in the USA. Seems like the perfect matchup. Several of the sticks in the line have been rated extremely high by CA, so I thought I'd give one a try. Triple cap and oily wrapper looked very nice. Unfortunately it was marred by the loosest draw ever. Just wasn't an enjoyable smoke since it kept going out. I gave up on it after 2 inches. The flavor that did come through was spicy and full-bodied. My local B&M says that the boxes he's been getting in have been severely underfilled. I believe this is a result from overcompensating for some plugged sticks Tatuaje was having before. I got another stick (not Tainos) to replace this one. Hoping for a better experience, but the replacement feels light and has soft softs near the band. For the $12 MSRP, these sticks shouldn't be having this many construction problems, which is probably due to increased production despite what the official reports are. If you are going to get a stick or a box, make sure you check it for underfilling.
