Tatuaje Havana VI Angeles


Sometimes you just need a powerful corona to make your day right, and it's hard to find a better choice than the Tatuaje Havana VI Angeles. This 4 5/8-inch x 42-ring cigar is crammed with strong black cherry, spice and leather, and the finish is a mile long. We found it the strongest of the six-size Havana VI line, and our favorite of the bunch.

Original Tatuajes, which were made in Miami, are hard to find, given their limited production. Havana VIs, the "red label" versions, are made in Nicaragua and easier to find. They're also cheaper, thanks to the lower cost of labor in Nicaragua. As with all Tatuajes, these are made by Jose "Pepin" Garcia.
