tatuaje reserva j21

Once in action, the J21 is a solid performer with just a few issues. The draw is fine and receives no complaints. The ash is gray in color and seems to hold for awhile, but it is a tad flaky. The burn stays even until halfway through, and then it tends to want to stray. Thus, there are some touch-ups needed here and there. Other than that, there are no major burn issues that reach a disaster level.

The flavors are very enjoyable and offer up some complexity. The first flavor detected is of earth, which was hinted at prior to lighting. The earth then moves on to notes of wood and cedar. Later on, a good amount of spicy pepper kicks in to give the cigar some punch. The final flavor worth noting is of nuts, and it adds some nice balance to the overall mix.

The Reserva J21 offers up a quality smoke. There's not much here to that will knock your socks off or “wow” you, but the J21 does hold its own. Its nice appearance was a promise of things to come, and minus the slightly uneven burn, there were not many issues to contend with. The flavors were varied and complex, and there was hardly a dull moment throughout the entire smoking experience. The J21 probably caters more towards experienced smokers, although it was not so overbearing that it would bowl a novice over. A single can be had for about $11, and there are also boxes for sale that come packed with 25 cigars. That price tag is by no means cheap, but you are getting a good cigar in return. Tatuaje has a pretty good record of putting out quality cigars, and the J21 is no different. In that sense, it's worth picking up a single at least if you want to try something new.

The Tatuaje Reserva J21 earns a rating of three out of four stars.
