The golden wrapper makes me think mild, but the logo of Tatuaje makes me think otherwise. One thing that is certain is that Belicoso’s are my favorite size and this Cabaiguan is one of the best Belicoso’s I’ve seen. The construction is flawless and the quality of the wrapper is great.
In the flavor department you will get some creamy earthy flavors with a slight and gentle spicy undertone. It’s full in strength, but very easy on the palate. The smoke is heavy, but never leaves any harshness in your mouth. I did notice a change towards the end, with tiny bits of Floral flavors, but the dominant flavors still remain creamy And earthy.
The way a cigar burns can make an okay cigar good or a good cigar fantastic. The Cabaiguan starts off fantastic and ends fantastic. The burn and draw were perfect through out the whole cigar, which only makes me love this cigar even more.
Simply put, I cannot wait to get my hands on some more. The flavors are perfectly balanced and, along with that, you don’t have to worry about the draw or fixing the burn. If you're looking for the perfect smoke for a late afternoon of relaxing, I highly recommend this cigar for you.
Final Note: As much as I LOVE the Tatuaje Series P, there’s no doubt in my mind that the Cabaiguan is my favorite cigar from Pete Johnson.
Final Grade: B+
