sanmig1 Today’s reviews cover the San Miguel Churchill and the Tatuaje Wolfman.  Both are quite different in terms of flavor, presentation, and concept, so read more to find out which fits your style.

San Miguel Churchill

I must admit, I am out of the loop when it comes to San Miguel cigars.  I’ve never really heard of the brand until I stumbled across it on the internet, and my curiosity urged me to give it a try.  The brand first came onto the scene in 2010 during the IPCPR trade show.  Based in Nicaragua, San Miguel is said to offer a smooth, complex, and satisfying smoke.

The San Miguel Churchill measures 7 x 48.  Other sizes in the line include the 4 ½ x 52 Belicoso, 5 x 50 Robusto, 6 x 50 Toro, and the 6 x 52 Torpedo.  The cigar’s filler is a blend of tobaccos from the Esteli and Ometepe regions of Nicaragua, as well as tobacco from the Jamastran region of Honduras.  The binder is also Nicaraguan, and an Ecuadorian Sun Grown Sumatra wrapper tops things off.  In terms of strength, the San Miguel is said to fall somewhere between medium and full-bodied.

As far as first impressions go, the San Miguel Churchill is a winner.  The cigar looks flawless and has a perfect box-pressed shape.  The light brown wrapper is oily and features a few minimal veins.  The cigar has a little give to it when pinched, but no true soft spots.  The band is the highlight of the appearance.  It displays the San Miguel name along with a depiction of an angel stepping on a devil.  The amount of detail is superb.  Throw in some nice white and gold colors, and you band collectors have one of the best looking bands around.  As I take a whiff of the cigar, I pick up an earthy scent.  The cold taste is the same.

After lighting, the San Miguel Churchill exhibits solid burn qualities.  The draw is easy, there’s plenty of thick smoke, and the light gray ash is solid.  Only a few touch-ups are needed to help get it back on track, but nothing major.
