After lighting the Tatuaje Black Robusto, it does not have the smoothest burn ever. It can get uneven at times. Although the burn wasn’t the greatest, it did have a great draw and solid ash. You also shouldn’t have to worry about any re-lighting. The flavors experienced while smoking the Black Robusto are varied and change constantly throughout the smoke. Unlike its unlit smell and flavor, the Black Robusto once lit gives off some notes of sweet chocolate, which is later joined by some coffee flavor as well as a slight bit of pepper. Further in, cedar shows up for the party, although the combination of pepper, chocolate, and coffee seems to constantly be in the mix as well. Towards the end the coffee and chocolate flavors are still kicking, although not as strong.

The Tatuaje Black Robusto has plenty of flavors to pique your interest, especially if you are a big fan of full-bodied cigars. If you are a beginner or prefer milder cigars, then this one is most likely not for you. Its burn can get a bit hairy at times, but the flavor combinations overshadow this. It’s a good cigar to have occasionally, although it may be too strong to have on a frequent basis. You can get a single for $15. That is, if you can even find one now. These sticks are pretty rare and hard to find, so if you find yourself out of luck hopefully there will be more released in the future. Of course if you are a big fan of Tatuaje cigars, you just might put in enough effort in your search to gather one of these up. If you aren’t a huge fan, you may not want to knock your brains out in doing so, as there are other full-bodied cigars out there that can satisfy your needs. The Tatuaje Black Robusto earns a rating of three out of four stars.


Tatuaje Cojonu 2006


The Tatuaje Cojonu 2006 is the second installment in the Cojonu line. One was released in 2003, and the third was released in 2009. The Cojonu 2006 is considered to be medium-to full bodied, and is hand rolled in Little Havana and overseen by Don Pepin.

The Tatuaje Cojonu 2006 measures 5 ½x52. Like other Tatuaje cigars, it’s a Nicaraguan puro. Its filler and binder are Nicaraguan, and it also has a Nicaraguan Corojo ’99 wrapper. It comes finished off with a Cuban triple cap.

The Cojonu 2006 has a rather unassuming appearance, although nowhere near as rough as the Black Robusto. It has two decorative bands near the head. The top band is brown and white in color and bears the Tatuaje name. The band beneath it is a bit more eye-catching and is black and gold in color with the name of the cigar imprinted. The cigar itself has a dark, slightly oily look with a few veins. Its pretty firm to the touch, and before lighting it has a sweet smell and a fruity taste.
