The Tatuaje Petite Cazadores is the smallest vitola in the Reserva line that still utilizes a band. It is made in Nicaragua by Jaime Garcia at My Father Cigars SA.
Size: 4 x 40
Cigars Smoked: 1
The cigar has a rough appearance but that is part of its charm. Cutting reveals a fairly restricted draw.
The first third brings with it dark, chocolate, and cedar flavors. They all blend quite nicely to create the profile I really enjoy in a cigar.
Into the second third a slight bitterness develops but dissipates to the background. I start to pick up leather as the chocolate flavors fade into a cocoa.
The chocolate kicks back up in the final third with an added spice. The cigar starts to get harsh so I let it go out with less than an inch left.
Overall, this is a great short smoke. However, due to the size it left me wanting more. It really makes me crave the larger vitolas and almost wish I had grabbed one of those instead. The flavor profile is right up my alley though so this cigar rates an 88, meaning I would pick up a 5 pack.
