Introducing, the newest release from Pete Johnson of Tatuaje; the ME II. Unlike the original Mexican Experiment released by Tatuaje in 2011, the new ME II will be a regular production cigar for the brand. The Tatuaje MEII is a slight twist on the original 2011 ME release. The cigar features a Mexican San Andres wrapper with Nicaraguan binder and filler tobacco. The cigar will be offered in four sizes (Toro 5 ¾ x 50, Robusto 5 x 54, Churchill 6 ½ x 49, and Belicoso 5 x 52). The cigars unlike the original ME release; that was packaged in a bundle format will be offered in 15 count boxes.
The cigar begins by featuring rich notes of dark chocolate, earth, oak, and a subtle spice. As the cigar continues to burn the flavors ramp up in intensity; while maintaining a very consistent profile. The flavors are especially prevalent on the retohale of this particular cigar. Overall the cigar performed extremely well; providing rich flavors, in a medium bodied format.
