Tatuaje 20th Anniversary Grande Merveille (Churchill)

First time with this gem today… I’ve heard good things

First Third:
The Tatuaje 20th Anniversary Grande Merveille starts with cedar and earth tobacco flavors with a touch of sweetness. Other flavors are dark and rich as in dark coffee and baking chocolate.

Second Third:
Cedar woody notes come my way along with more Dark coffee and baking chocolate joining the mix as Black pepper pirouettes across the palate.

Final Third:
The Tatuaje 20th Anniversary Grande Merveille gathers its strength. The cedar notes deepen. I’m beginning to feel like this is a meat stick… meaning I should smoke this after a fine steak and bourbon.

Until next time…
