10th Anniversary, Belle Encre, Ecuadorian Habano, Pete Johnson, TatuajeOne of these days… you’d think I’d get the hang of these beautiful Tatuaje 10th Anniversary Cigars and their closed foot. I got fooled again today. After a snip and a cut, the draw was perfect delivering cocoa and earthy leather on my cold draw. I can’t wait to fire this up.

Once lit, again, I’m in my happy zone with this fabulous cigar. Creamy earth, cocoa, and leather are going to keep me company with just the correct amount of spice on the retrohale. I’m in the zone with a perfect draw and razor sharp burn line.

As I’m approaching the end of the second third, coffee has ramped up to espresso as thick smoke delivers more of the same flavors only ramped up with a lasting oily chewy finish that coats my tongue for a lasting flavor.

I think you have a pretty good idea of my fondness for the Tatuaje 10th Anniversary Bon Chasseur cigar. This is definitely Box Worthy

10th Anniversary, Belle Encre, Ecuadorian Habano, Pete Johnson, TatuajeI keep forgetting that the Tatuaje 10th Anniversary cigar has a closed foot, so be warned or advised … your tight draw might be because of the…

A snip and a cut and my cold draw delivered a blast of milk chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate… I love chocolate. After all, it’s one of the major food groups.

Once lit, my the Tatuaje 10th Anniversary cigar delivers delicious flavors in my wheelhouse with volumes of chewy rich smoke or earth, leather, cocoa, and coffee with a perfect retrohale of balanced black pepper spice … not overpowering … #SakamotoHappy

Halfway through and flavors ramp up a little and continue to provide the smoking experience that I will come to expect from this delicious cigar.

Well, I’m not going to hold today’s smoking experience against this glorious and beautiful cigar. After a straight-cut clip and a snip, I realized that I was tugging on a closed foot cigar… I forgot or I was too excited to get this cigar going.

I had my cheeks fully inverted for a couple of minutes of effort to get this Tatuaje 10th Anniversary cigar blazing. Hmmm, I start to panic; I just purchased a box of these… oh well. I acquire a sharp toothpick and start to gently poke several 3/4-length toothpick perforations in the hopes that will help. It does eventually toward the last half, or it corrected itself.

Fear not, everything finally arrived and provided the enjoyment I was looking forward to. I could have done with less of the fussing around though.

Next time.

Brown Label, Habano Ecuador, Miami Regios, Pete Johnson, TatuajeThis was my first time with the Tatuaje 10 Year Anniversary cigar. I didn’t realize at the time I smoked this beautifully constructed cigar that it was this blend that put Tatuaje on the cigar-map with top 25 Cigar of the Year honors and an impressive 90-rating, and that was over 10-years ago. The Tatuaje 10 Year Anniversary is produced at the My Father factory in Esteli, Nicaragua vs. Miami.

Today, I found out that this cigar is a top-notch winner and will have a place in my TupperDor.

Here we go:
As I mentioned earlier, this cigar is a beautifully constructed cigar with a very smooth Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that produced a cold draw of sweet cocoa and leather from this hefty cigar.

Once lit, I almost forgot to take notice as I was posting this shot on Instagram. I’m already an inch along with this very luxurious smoke. The draw is perfect providing mouthfuls of deliciously chewy creamy smoke. I hope these are priced correctly because I would happily add this to my TupperDor collection. Thank you Ralph Sumo.

Halfway and I’m really enjoying my first experience with this Tatuaje 10 Year Anniversary cigar, maybe it’s because I haven’t smoked a cigar in a couple of days, but this is glorious… rich creamy cappuccino and leather take over my senses… and the spice is just right; hanging out in the background just like any good seasoning should… #SakamotoHappy.

A cigar that provides Coffee, Chocolate, Leather, Earth all day long deserves my attention. I didn’t notice any major transitions with this cigar, and that’s fine by me. I’m Really digging this smooth chewy smoke, a perfectly constructed cigar with a perfect draw and razor char line.

I have nothing but accolades for this cigar except maybe the price, but what do you expect from a premium quality cigar.

This is box worthy
