Description: The Tatuaje Noelles received a “92” rating and “2006 Cigar of the Year” by Cigar Aficionado. I am in love with this cigar! Heck, with the entire line! What a gorgeous stick! The wrapper has a cinnamon sheen that practically glows under light. The construction is absolutely perfect! Tis a shame to put it to the flame,,, nah! Pretlit flavors of wood and leather. Upon lighting, I was met with a full frontal attack of that woodsy leather and tobacco! I detected subtle hints of chocolate and coffee and these developed quite nicely. By the half-way mark, it turned into a full-bodied, full-flavored cigar. Very complex for such a small stick! I enjoyed the spiciness it picked up during the last third. I can’t quite figure it out, as it stayed in the background. But, wow, did it compliment all the other flavors. Smoked it all the way down….
This cigar produced a lot of smoke for its size. No problems at all with the burn! About 30 minutes worth….
Verdict: You have to try this cigar! If not this one, grab yourself any of the Tatuaje’s that are coming out! My box of Noelles is quickly disappearing!
Similar Cigars: I’m not sure what I would compare this to. Perhaps a RP Edge, though I found those a bit harsh at the get go. I was just as satisfying at the beginning of the Noelles as I was at the end!
