Tatuaje TAA 2011

Boy, I sure wish I'd been able to jot down some notes while smoking this cigar.  Instead, I allowed myself to get wrapped up in conversation with a pal.  That's okay for me, but sad for you, because this stogie was "Delicious."  At least that's what I wrote down - that's apparently all I wrote down...  Bottom line:  It was good.  They could be difficult to find.

5 Vegas Gold (robusto)

Review coming soon...  but so far, unimpressed.
UPDATE:  So yeah, I wasn't at all enthused about this cigar.

1/3:  Flavors of honey and cinnamon, but rather than satisfy the mouth, they dried it out.

2/3:  The wrapper started to char in the 2nd third.  The cigar burned like newspaper.

I didn't have the patience to finish this disappointing stick.  The Miami M5 was decent, so this was especially disappointing.  Although, I do admit that I'm not a big fan of milds with light Connecticut wrappers.

Don Pepin Garcia Blue Generosos

It occurs to me that I have smoked and reviewed this smoke before..  no need to repeat myself.  As is typical with Pepin smokes, this one had the strong, peppery blast following the light.  It then mellowed nicely, and at 1" of ash holding on tightly, one can't deny that Pepin makes a quality smoke.
