Nice cold draw of milk chocolate and sweet cherries…. Let’s see how that translates as I smoke through this Tatuaje Havana VI Nobles (Robusto) by Tatuaje Cigars …
Beautiful natural tobacco flavors of earthy coffee and leather with a slightly sweet cherry finish come to me on plentiful smoke joined by a retrohale of black pepper spice, leather, and cherry… so far so good… I’m digging this cigar.
I drifted off again and wasn’t paying attention… to summarize my smoking experience with this Tatuaje Havana VI, I’d say that it has a bit of “Tatuaje Bite” or harshness not that this is a bad thing, but seemingly a trademark of the Tatuaje cigars that I’ve been smoking lately. Maybe harsh is too strong of a word… maybe rough around the edges would be better suited for this description.
Anyway, overall, a very pleasant smoking experience…
Until next time…

I’m getting reacquainted with this Ecuadorian Habano wrapped Tatuaje Havana VI Nobles (Robusto) by Tatuaje Cigars… Finally!
I was immersed in conversations at the Sellwood Cigar Lounge today so I wasn’t able to pay or give my undivided attention to this Tatuaje Havana VI Nobles (Robusto), so, didn’t take any notes, but I enjoyed what I remembered!
I’ll better next time… Promise!
Until next time…
COVID-19 Day 702
Creamy coffee, leather, cocoa, and some slight fruity sweetness with a pepper and leather retrohale.
For those reasons, I’m making a point to get reacquainted with this Havana VI Nobles (Robusto) by Tatuaje Cigars. I used to smoke these often and then… other cigars got in the way.
Smoking on… just past the halfway point and into the last third, cedar tobacco flavors dominate through a draw with just the correct amount of resistance. The retrohale is a comforting black pepper and leather.
I’m glad I recently renewed my “stash”… so I’m good for a while.
Until next time…
COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 455: 2.5-Mile Cigar
Believe it or not, this was the first Cigar Walk with this Tatuaje Havana VI Nobles (Robusto) by Tatuaje Cigars with some assistance from My Father Cigars, and Jaime Garcia.
Given that this Tatuaje Havana VI Nobles was probably one of my first cigar purchases when I returned to the Cigar Hobby, I certainly have not paid enough attention to these gems!
This Habano wrapped cigar delivered via a perfect draw with the perfect amount of resistance delivering a very satisfying amount of smoke and pleasant tobacco flavors with a touch of caramel sweetness. I seldom retrohale while I’m outdoors and walking… just an FYI.
I think I need to pursue this Tatuaje Havana VIs some more!
After the last Tatuaje Havana VI Angeles (12/11/2018), I decided that this had made the cut to the Sakamoto TupperDor. After resting for a month, we get to try this larger Robusto size today.
I was looking forward to today’s indulgence with the Tatuaje Havana VI Nobles (Red Label, Robusto). I’ve been enjoying the Nobles little sister Havana VI Angeles and I thought I should try this size.
With a straight-cut, there were no discernible flavors on the cold draw. Once lit, woody leather and hay with pepper coating my tongue through lots of smoke. This is a well-constructed cigar with a perfect draw.
I’m at the halfway point and as expected, the flavors are ramping up with a little more of the Don Pepin pepper spice on the retrohale. Creamy earthy smoke continues the rest of the way.
This isn’t an overly complicated cigar, but it provides a solid performance and experience from one of the best cigar tobacco blending teams in the industry, Pete Johnson and Jaime Garcia at the My Father Cigars factory.
For the correct price, this belongs in the Sakamoto TupperDor.
