Tatuaje LaVerite 2009 Cigar LinesTatuaje’s La Verite 2009 cigars are Nicaraguan puros which means they are composed solely of Nicaraguan tobacco. Made by hand under the supervision of Mr. Pepin himself, Tatuaje’s La Verite 2009 cigars are made of Nicaraguan tobaccos produced from tobacco whose seeds originated in Cuba. Tightly bound in Habano wrappers and offering a spicy and a fuller bodied punch, these are the stuff that “dreams are made of.”

Tatuaje was first introduced in 2003. Made at Pepin’s factory in both Miami and in the Esteli region of Nicaragua, this was the first brand produced by Don Pepin himself. This brand’s smokes have been award winners every year since its inception.

Tatuaje’s La Verite 2009 offer the following profile:

• Vitolas: Churchill (7 x 47) and Robusto (5 x 50)

• Wrapper: Habano (Nicaraguan)

• Binder: La Estrella Habano Criollo

• Filler: Habano Nicaragua, Criollo ’98, Pelo De Oro

• Strength: Medium to Full Bodied

Upon examination, the beautiful brown wrapper has a few reddish tones to it as well. While you may find a vein here or there, none of them are really that noticeable. The wrapper is somewhat oily, and flawlessly rolled—in other words, “perfect!”

On the pre-light draw you will find just a hint of cocoa along with a delicious earthiness. Once ignited by your favorite cigar lighter, the flavors of Tatuaje’s La Verite 2009 include that sought after peppery taste along with some earthiness and sweetness mixed in for good measure.

The first third of the smoke offers up notes of toast touched by cedar along with the earthiness remaining in the background with an offering of warm spices. The second third really begins to come alive and offers up a leather flavor that is added to the mix. One reviewer said that they even detected a fruity note like that of a grape. The cigar rounds out the final third with the cocoa, fruit, earthiness, sweetness, cedar and leather all combining to make this an extremely complex finish.

This stick reportedly has a perfect burn. The ash that resembles nothing so much as salt and pepper holds on well to the very nub of the smoke. A nice volume of smoke encircles the smoker while the aroma is considered pleasant even by non-smokers.

Tatuaje’s La Verite 2009 is a wonderfully complex fuller bodied offering that starts out as a medium bodied smoke. Many cigar smoking connoisseurs believe that, as good as it is, this smoke will be even better after it has aged well and the entire stick has matured.

From start to finish, this one is sure to please even the fussiest of the aficionados and all connoisseurs as well. From the offerings of the best tobaccos in Nicaragua comes the final product that is hailed as one of the best cigars on the market today. From the brilliant flavors to the blend that creates the complexity that keeps you coming back for more, this is definitely one cigar that is worth putting in your humidor time and time again.
