Tatuaje 7th Capa Especial, this has been a cigar I was chasing for a while. There had been so many good reviews about it I needed to try it for myself. This cigar like all Tat’s are rolled at the My Father factory in Esteli, NIca.
The wrapper was a little rough and looked dated. The prelight draw was easy and the cut was clean through the cap.
5 mins- the burn is even and a little fast, the flavor of the sumatra wrapper is easily recognized and the spectrum is broad
15 mins- just a nice even burn, with an abundance of smoke and the ash hangs on thanks to good long filler, the flavor is deeper and a touch of spice
45 mins- the last inch of this cigar is the best, the smoke is cool and the flavor still strong deep past the area of the cigar band
I am giving this cigar 9 Smoke Rings, this is the way a cigar should be blended. Its sneaks in with a mild flavor and then the trigger is pulled to attack your palate. Way to go PHJ.
