    Tatuaje La Casita Criolla Mini Review

    I picked up this cigar at the CI super-store last week and I wanted to leave it in my humidor just long enough for it to nicely settle down to around 65%

    Anyway, I'm making this a mini review because there's not much to say as this was probably the worst cigar I've had in a long time.

    The smoke: From the first puff to the last this cigar was very harsh. Cedar was the main flavor, along with some metal, an unknown chemical flavor, tobacco tar, pencil, and a tad bit of citrus. The smoke was very dry and made my tongue quite unhappy. I made it a little more than half way through before I couldn't take it anymore. The only good thing I can say about this cigar was the excellent construction and burn.

    Rating: 2 Thumbs way down

    I'm guessing perhaps this cigar needs to rest quite a while before smoking, but I feel like no cigar should ever be this bad at any point in it's life. Anybody have any thoughts on this cigar?

    No experience with this cigar, but feel with most tatuajes I like them more rested...just my opinion.

    i finally met a tatuaje that disappointed me. started off with a spiciness that comes on hard and leaves in the same manner wasabi does, but not as pronounced. it was a tad more subtle. and i totally agree with you on the "pencil" flavor. that's exactly what i was tasting that i couldn't figure out. this cigar also finished quite harshly. was not a nubber for me.

    Most cigar smokers know what they like. Even with the bad experience, I would not write off a cigar after only one sample. It may have been a dud, your palate may have been off or just not the cigar for you.

    As I have said before, almost all the CI purchases I have made were on the wet side. One time, it took better than a month (almost seven weeks) to get my cigars rested to the mid to low 60's where I like them. Tats, especially.

    Ha I tried two robustos and they tasted like graham crackers. Tried a corona gorda and it tasted like it came out if a cows butt. So maybe the robustos are a better vitola.

    These are one of my favorite cigars. All of the ones I've had had 3+ months rest on them though. Don't know how much that changes em.
