We continue the Top 5 Cigars of 2023 with the brand I cut my teeth on so to speak. Prior to discovering this Pete Johnson brand I was a casual cigar smoker without a brand that I gravitated to more then any other. Until back in the day of the cigar forums when I took part in a cigar pass and someone introduced me to Tatuaje. This brand changed cigars for me and sparked a passion that led to a 25 year career in the cigar industry.
The Number 3 Cigar of the Year belongs to a company celebrating their 20th Anniversary. the Tatuaje 20th Anniversary Grande Merveille. Measuring 6.25 vs 46 this Corona Gorda delivers notes of cedar, baking spices, leather and a touch of cloves to start before revealing dark chocolate and marzipan making it extremely complex. It’s flavor changes keep you engaged from first light to last puff. You can read our full review at: https://www.thebarrelburner.com/2023/11/23/cigar-review-tatuaje-20th-anniversary-grande-merveille/
Congratulations to Pete Johnson & Tatuaje for making the Top 5 Cigars of 2023 list!
