So, if you’re a regular at keeping up with all of the online cigar blogs you’ve probably already come across many reviews of the Tatuaje 7th Capa Especial. There have been lots of mixed reviews on this cigar, which personally I think is a good thing. We must remember that the art of cigar smoking is just that… an art. Some people’s trash is another’s treasure, and that is the beauty of this leisure. Since there has been so much rave about this cigar I decided to go ahead and voice my thoughts about the Tatuaje 7th Capa Especial.

Before we begin I want to make note that this cigar is actually rolled at the My Father cigar factory in Esteli, Nicaragua just like the rest of the Reserva brown label line (instead of in Miami), and the Capa Especial is carrying a Sumatra wrapper instead of Connecticut Broadleaf.

Ernesto Padilla’s cigar line, after the revamp, consists of Reserva, Reserva Maduro, Miami 8 & 11, Miami Maduro, Vintage Reserve and Connecticut. The cigar that is being reviewed, however, is one of the old Miami lines. I believe that this one was still manufactured in Miami USA but I might be wrong. Needless to say, it has some age on it.

Note: I did a guest cigar review for the Serie V Maduro Especial 2011 a year back on another website. I noticed that the owner of that site has now removed all references to Cigar Inspector from that review and basically published it as his own. Not a gentleman's move, but unfortunately this happens in the blogosphere. I'm illustrating this redux review with the original pictures so you can see who's the real reviewer.

Anyway, I thought this was an opportunity to revisit this cigar and see how it fares one year later. As a reminder, Oliva releases Oliva Serie V Maduro cigars since 2008 and the 2011 edition was a 6 x 50 toro featuring a Mexican San Andres Maduro wrapper.

Until March of 2009, Ernesto Perez Carrillo worked under General Cigar’s eye, helping to oversee all aspects of the La Gloria Cubana brand. After heavy influence from his son, Ernesto III and daughter Lissette, he left General Cigar to pursue a family-run boutique brand.

The EPC Cigar Company has been nothing short of fantastic since its debut and is quickly becoming one of the better known cigar brands in the USA. Until the release of the E.P. Carrillo Elencos Series (which is actually the Edicion Limitada 2010, same cigars) I had only had the beginning Inaugural line cigars.

Tatuaje Havana VI is one of the main lines of the brand. It doesn’t get much attention compared to limited editions, but this cigar, produced in Nicaragua by Pepin Garcia on the My Father factory, also deserves a test drive.

The new RyJ by Romeo y Julieta should be hitting the market in your area very shortly if it hasn’t already. And if you are a fan of the brand, Nicaraguan sticks or a cigar with a bit of spice than this is one for you.

I was fortunate to be given a few Toros to review, and I have to tell you, these take the number one spot in the Romeo stable for me. Right from the get-go, the aesthetics grab you with the white red and gold double banding wrapped around a mocha colored, silky Nicaraguan wrapper that was specially cultivated for this blend. The pre-light aroma is of sweet espresso.
