Like many Tatuaje offerings, the La Casita Criolla has a presentation that lacks any major frills. That really doesn’t matter too much, of course, as it is what’s on the inside that counts. The decorative band displays the La Casita Criolla name as well as Tatuaje Cigars Esteli in red, white, and gold. The styling of the band is somewhat vintage and reminds me of the sixties or seventies. The cigar itself has a dark wrapper that is oily with some medium-sized veins. There’s an overall rustic look to the cigar that matches the band well. Squeezing it lightly reveals that there are no soft spots. Just before lighting, I detect a sweet scent and a taste of cedar.

In terms of the burn qualities, all is good here. There’s a nice volume of smoke and a pleasant aroma as well. The draw is neither too tight nor too loose. The burn is even throughout and the ash is gray and solid.

The satisfactory smoking experience continues with the La Casita Criolla’s flavor. The team at Tatuaje did a good job of making the cigar smooth, yet flavorful. The HCBC’s sweet beginning is accentuated by chocolate and nuts. Spice and nuts dominate the second third, while more spice and earth complete the smoke in the final third.

If you are a Tatuaje fan or a smoker in general on the hunt for a medium-bodied cigar with good flavor, the La Casita Criolla is a good bet. At $7 each, you are getting a quality cigar at what seems to be a fair price.

The Tatuaje La Casita Criolla HCBC Corona Gorda earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.
