Tatuaje Cabinet Taino

El Rey de los Habanos is easy to miss. The narrow cigar factory is located on Miami's historic Calle Ocho, or 8th Street, and it has only about a dozen rolling tables, about 10 of which are occupied by Spanish-speaking Cuban rollers who carefully craft dark cigars with impeccable precision. This is the home of the Tatuaje brand. The factory doesn't make many Tatuajes -- the facility is small to begin with, and Tatuaje isn't the only brand made here -- but those that are created are intensely flavorful, made with three-seam caps in the style of Cuban cigars and packed with hearty, leathery Nicaraguan leaf that gives them a most Cubanesque flavor. The Taino, a 7 5/8 by 49 cigar, is particularly exceptional, with earthy, spicy flavors and a full body.
