Often compared to Montecristo No.4, the Partagas Mille Fleurs, in my opinion, boasts quite a strong personality. Another advantage is its place on the price/value scale.

So I’m probably building myself a bit of a reputation for being a Tatuaje “Homer” and I won’t deny it. They are fantastic cigars and even the cheapest of the line, the white banded P series is pretty darn good for a mixed filler yard ‘gar. Tatuajes have been dominating my smoking rotation as of late which is why they also have been dominating my recent reviews as well. So keeping with that theme here is yet another Tatuaje review. This time I put an RC233 to flame.

Morocho Churchill

Origin : Dominican Republic
Format : Churchill/Julieta
Size : 178 x 20 mm
Ring : 50
Weight : N/A
Price : ~$40 for a box of 25

I ordered this new brand online because they are a new brand that advertised very mild flavor. Morocho Churchill were exactly that... but too much of it. They turned out to burn a little unevenly and provided a very light, smooth smoke that also proved to be very bland and almost boring. If you enjoy a big, long, smooth, but spiceless smoke, then I'd recommend it.

As promised a review of Arturo Fuente Churchill. Let me say that this is not my favorite stick from this brand, but that's the one I smoked recently, so my memory is still fresh. A good average cigar with a very satisfying price/quality relationship.
