tatuaje reserva j21


tatj21pic1 We have two solid, yet different cigars on today's review menu. Up first is the complex Reserva J21 from Tatuaje. Not to be outdone is the 3000 from Davidoff, with its very smooth, yet mild nature and excellent construction.

Tatuaje Reserva J21

Pete Johnson's Reserva J21 line from Tatuaje has done well amongst critics in the past. Don Pepin Garcia helped Johnson with the production of the J21, which takes place in the Little Havana section of Miami, Florida. We've tested out some Tatuaje offerings here in the past, but is the J21 as good as some of the ratings it has received? Hopefully it is, and now is the time to put it to the test.

The Reserva J21 measures 5 x 50. After snooping around the net, this appears to be the only size as well. The filler is said to come from Nicaraguan tobacco, and the same holds true for the binder. The wrapper is Nicaraguan as well, but of the Ligero variety. Like other offerings from Tatuaje, the Reserva J21 is rolled in traditional Cuban style and is topped off with a Cuban triple cap. In terms of strength, this stick is categorized somewhere in between medium and full-bodied.

At first glance, the J21 is a good looking cigar. Its wrapper is dark brown and it has a healthy amount of oil on the surface. There are some large veins that are visible as well, but the cigar appears to be smooth overall and has solid construction. Feeling the cigar reveals that is packed with plenty of tobacco. There are two bands near the head that add a nice touch to the overall look. The top band is red and white and displays the Tatuaje brand name. The band beneath it is black and gold and showcases the J21 label. Before striking it with a lighter, the J21 has a cold taste of pepper. Its scent, meanwhile, is earthy.
