The Havana VI Angeles is an attractive cigar that appears to have solid construction. That's no surprise considering the fact that Don Pepin Garcia is behind its creation. The wrapper is dark and has a very oily sheen. It also has a slight reddish tint that becomes visible when you view it under direct light. The triple cap is impeccable. There are a few small veins that are visible, but that's about it. The cigar feels firm to the touch from top to bottom and has no soft spots. A thin red and white band sits near the head that displays the Tatuaje name. It's not the most creative band around, but it does the job. A quick whiff before lighting reveals a sweet scent that is pleasant. The cold taste is earthy.

The Angeles' solid construction helps to deliver a near-perfect burn. The draw is good, and the gray ash is solid. The burn never strays from being even. The lack of re-lights or touch-ups is a plus.

There's a decent amount of complexity packed into the Angeles. The categorization of the Havana VI line being medium-bodied is spot-on. The cigar does have a bit of a kick to it, but it never gets to the point of being overpowering. Upon lighting, an earthy flavor develops. This lasts for a good part of the first third, until it is finally joined by some leather. About halfway into the Angeles some light pepper notes appear. They are rather mild. The final third is marked by some sweetness, and the cigar seems to mellow out as time passes.

Tatuaje produces some solid cigars, and the Havana VI Angeles is no exception. I can see where the high ratings come from, as it has solid construction, a great burn, and nice flavor. Whether or not it can be considered one of Tatuaje's best offerings remains to be seen. If you enjoy Nicaraguan puros, medium-bodied cigars, or are just a fan of Tatuaje in general, you should definitely pick up at least one of the sizes in the Havana VI line. The Angeles is particularly nice if you are looking for a departure from the trend of thicker cigars that seems to be popular. It's also a solid pick if you like cigars in the more traditional Cuban mold. The Angeles comes in packs of five or boxes of 24. A single retails for between $5 and $6. Considering its size, some may find that price to be a tad high. In that case, just pick up a single and find out for yourself. In the very least, you will be getting your hands on a quality cigar.

The Tatuaje Havana VI Angeles earns a rating of 3.25 out of four stars.

Nestor Miranda Art Deco Coffee Break


The Art Deco line is the result of a collaborative effort between Nestor Miranda and Don Pepin Garcia. It was introduced during the 2010 IPCPR convention in New Orleans, so it may have flown underneath your radar, until now.
