Tatuaje Fausto Avion 11

Friday, December 2nd, 2011

I continue my Tatuaje kick that I’ve been on since Ed’s event not too long ago. I picked up several Tat’s I haven’t tried before. The Avion being one of those… As you’ve come to expect, I have no big back story about the Avion. I tend to focus on construction and flavor. Everything else is secondary. So let’s get to it…


Wrapper: Ecuadorian Habano

Binder: Nicaragua

Filler: Nicaragua

Size: Perfecto Grande 6 3/4 x 48/52

Price: $10.00


Pre-Smoke & Construction:

The wrapper glistened in the light and had a bit of a rugged look to it. The smell of the wrapper and foot was sweet with a touch of bardyard. The pre-light draw had a little resistance, and have a sweet earthy flavor. The cigar was solidly packed with only a minor soft spot or two.

The first third required a good sized correction. I suspect that was from me not lighting the perfecto end correctly. The ash held for around an inch.

The first third was woody, a little nutty, and notes of peppery spice. The aftertaste was a bitterness you’d get from a dark chocolate but not quite that sweet. Through the nose, there was an easy sweet spice.

The second third had a dominant cedar with the bitter aftertaste I mentioned earlier. The bitterness was similar to black coffee but also reminded me the kind associated with dark chocolate. There was a nutty component in there as well. The spicy pepper calmed and became very mild.

The last third saw a return of pepper when retro-haling. It wasn’t a kick you in the face pepper. Black Coffee and dark chocolate dominated the flavor profile. It wasn’t as sweet as you’d expect though. The smoke feel smoothed out but wasn’t quite creamy.

This was a solid full bodied cigar that started off medium. It was a nice smoking experience with nice complexities and change-up’s. Looking back, my flavor descriptions may be lacking. There was something else going on here. No matter, I liked it. Any full bodied smoker should find something good about the Tatuaje Fausto Avion.
