Review: Tatuaje Little Monsters Baby Face

Released in 2012, the Tatuaje Little Monsters series was a limited run of smaller vitolas of the larger Monster series.  The bright orange box contained two each of the following: Frank Jr., Lil’ Drac, Wolfie, Mini Mum and Baby Face.  Most of the boxes also included a Garbage Pail Kids inspired trading card that featured one of the Little Monster characters on it (one other card depicted Pete Johnson on the Baby Face card).  I say most because there was a printing issue with the cards around the last shipment that made it so that some boxes did not receive a card.  The cigars were made at the My Father Cigars S.A. factory.  The Baby Face features a pointed head, an unfinished foot, and measures 4 3/8 x 50.

Wrapper: Mexican San Andreas

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan

Price: $7.50

Cigars Smoked: 1

 

After cutting, the draw is revealed to be slightly too loose.  It is not a huge problem but annoying nonetheless.  I do not pick up on much besides sweet tobacco on the cold draw.

Upon lighting I am immediately hit with spicy pepper accompanied by a sweet chocolate.  It is very pleasant and similar to the original The Face from the Monster Series.  A general woodiness joins the mix as the cigar starts to tunnel.  The flavors drop off but after a quick touch up with my jet flame lighter the burn is back on track and the flavors return. 

Into the second third the profile is still the same spicy, sweet, chocolate profile with a slight woodiness.  It is quite enjoyable and I pick up on random fleeting cinnamon notes.  The burn is still an annoying issue but touchups help keep the problem at bay. 

Into the final third the wrapper band starts to burn and brings with it a slightly smoother profile.  Not much else changes and the cigar starts to get bitter halfway through this third so I let it go out. 

Overall, this was a pretty good cigar but the burn issue was quite irritating.  I would smoke a few if they were being sold in a shop I was visiting; however, I would not go out of my way to obtain any more.  This cigar rates an 84/100.
