Buy The Tatuaje La Riqueza Cigar OnlineAfter every IPCPR Trade Show, aficionados wait for any news regarding a surprise cigar or two, and the Tatuaje La Riqueza has garnered some attention in the weeks following the show. Normally, a few industry writers are present at the show to report on their experiences, and some of them claimed that this blend was their favorite. Usually, this portends good things for the stick, and reviewers have perceived it the same way. 

The wrapper on this cigar is a Connecticut Broadleaf, and both the binder and fillers are from Nicaragua. It has a ruddy brown color and a texture best described as velvet as it is smooth and has few visible veins. It has a pig tail cap and some small dark spots due to the presence of magnesium, which is something many aficionados like to see in the sticks. It is available in a number of sizes, the most popular being the Robusto (5 x 48), the Belicoso Fino (5 1/2 x 52) and the Lancero (7 1/2 x 38). There is a single band, a slim red, gold and white label that features the name of the blend and some basic ornamentation. The cold draw brings some cherry and mocha flavors, along with the damp earth that smokers are familiar with. One reviewer likened it to the kind of dampness that sets in after the morning dew.

The first-third of the Tatuaje La Riqueza offers a different look than the cold draw, though the mocha flavors are still present. At first, though, they are overshadowed by a combination of pepper and leather that bring heat and spice to the smoke. After a few deep draws, the pepper and leather both fade some, taking a secondary role behind a mix of mocha, coffee, and tobacco notes. Towards the end of the initial third, some reviewers tasted a cinnamon spice, which adds a touch of sweetness to the profile. 

In the middle third of the stick, the flavors remain mostly the same, though they move around a bit. The cinnamon spice is more apparent on the palate but remains strictly secondary. The dominant flavors include coffee and mocha, along with the natural tobacco note. Black pepper is still in the mix, though it is most apparent through the nose. 

During the final third of the Tatuaje La Riqueza, reviewers note that the profile takes on a classic Connecticut Broadleaf feel, producing mocha, strong coffee and dark chocolate flavors that mix well with the cinnamon. The coffee note is the strongest, with the rest of the profile creating a sweet backdrop.

This stick is medium, though it offers a little more punch than the average medium. The burn and draw are both considerably above average, though reviewers found that the burn performs a touch better with the shorter vitolas. Reviewers also found that the post-show hype surrounding this stick was not wrong and that it would make an excellent addition in any humidor.
