Review Notes: Alright, I have to admit up front that when I started looking for Tatuajes I completely expected to be disappointed. I mean, what cigar can possibly live up to the kind of hype these things are generating (at least online). After maybe seven different ones, I would count myself a fan, a big fan. This thing, and I'm a little bit ashamed at the way I'm about to gush, is possibly the best cigar I have had. It is better than the RC 184 and the Cojonu 2006. It is better than any Opus X I've had. It is better than any VSG, 1926, Coronado, Anejo, or Casa Fuente that I've had. It is just the best cigar, for my tastes, of any I've had, and I really liked all of the above. The wrapper was flawless, the pre- and post-light scent was very nice, the draw was perfect, and the ash was nice and firm (I couldn't see the color in the dark, but I didn't care either). The only VERY slight problem was in the burn on the last two inches only. It was completely even until about the two inch mark, and I had to quit at about one inch or burn my lips. Even in the 30 F weather I would have smoked this thing until my hands went numb. I was not thrilled with the $10 I paid for it at the time, but I thought I'd give it a shot (since I liked the Cojonu 2006 so much). Now that I've smoked it I don't mind that price at all. I would even buy a box if I had the cash lying around. I really wanted to find something to say that would keep this review from sounding like a sales pitch, but I just enjoyed it too much. This one deserves a 10 as, in my opinion, the best I've ever had.
