Tasting Note

Cigars sold under the name Tatuaje have been embraced by connoisseurs for years. Originally rolled at Little Havana's El Rey de Los Habanos, which had all of a dozen rollers, demand for the strong cigars far outstripped supply. To get his cigars into more people's hands, brand owner Pete Johnson knew he had to go offshore, so he created a new line of Tatuajes in 2006 called Havana VI. Some feared the flavor and style would change, but the new versions—called Tatuaje red label, by some—delivered some of the highest scores yet for the brand. The Artistas size is a piramide, with a rich, toasty and earthy quality and that leather note found in many Tatuajes. They are crafted under the expert guidance of the Garcia family.
