This is one heck of popular cigar… and it’s not even released yet. The Tatuaje Anarchy is a special Limited Edition cigar that is a collaboration between Pete Johnson, Pepin Garcia and the Abe “Ming” Dababneh at Smoke Inn in the Palm Beach area. It features an all new blend and is one of the most interesting looking cigars I have seen in a long time.
The foot is slightly tapered and the cap looks like a cinnamon bun (it's a flattened pigtail that can be unraveled - see picture below). Holding it upright, it resembles a baseball bat and sports one of the coolest bands I’ve come across.
The cigar is a rusty dark brown and is firm to the touch. It seems to be exuding oils which always bodes well in the flavor department.
After light, the aroma of the smoke is very strong and makes you dizzy upon inhale. The first half inch is very spicy and peppery, reminding you this is a Pepin/Pete cigar. It immediately backs off on the spice and delivers a nice pleasant leathery, woody flavor with a hint of citrus and licorice on the finish.
There is also a dominant aura of earthiness o the palate that lingers past the halfway point.
The last half has a bit of bittersweet chocolate and leather with a hint of pepper. Very nice!
I’d like to thank the folks at Smoke Inn Cigars for the chance to try such a unique and tasty cigar!
