This cigar was assessed in depth on Cigar Coop.

The Tatuaje Tiff is a part of the 2014 Pudgy Monsters series. This cigar along with the Tatuaje Chuck are new blends released for the Pudgy Monsters sampler. It is also the first Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper cigar in the series.

The Tiff delivers starts out with notes of black pepper, wood, and nut. Notes of cream and fruit enter the equation. In the first third, the wood becomes a nice sweet cedar that combines with the nut flavors. The fruit sweetness and diminishes in the second third, but the cream and pepper notes increase in the second half.

While not a groundbreaking Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade cigar, it’s a very good one. It maintains medium strength and medium body throughout the smoking experience. The burn and draw were excellent. This one is worth a fiver.
