Tatuaje Havana VI

Another tasty Tatuaje for you to enjoy.

Carefully hand-crafted in Nicaragua, Tatuaje Havana VI is a richly rendered Nicaraguan puro. Dark and oily, these fine cigars combine a beautiful Nicaraguan wrapper with a robust blend of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-leaf tobaccos. Patiently aged and expertly balanced, Tatuaje VI is medium in body with a smooth earthy core, rich undertones and a touch of pepper.

Customer Reviews of “Tatuaje Havana VI”
“What a waste of $7! Absolutely horrible draw and very one dimensional flavor profile. I am a big Don Pepin fan, but this has to be one of the worst cigars he has blended. Don't waste your money, their is plenty of better smokes out there for less.”
CN of Arnold, MO
“WHAT CAN I SAY? EVERYONE KNOWS HOW GOOD THE TATUAJE LINE IS. BUT I MUST TELL YOU THAT THE TATUAJE HAVANA VI IS THE BEST IN THE WHOLE LINE. GREAT PUNGENT SWEET AROMA, HICKORY AND LEATHER FLAVOR. THE ANGELES SIZE IS VERY POTENT FOR A LITTLE SMOKE. VERY SATISFYING. IT WILL HAVE YOU GABBING LIKE A WOMAN AFTER YOU FINISH ONE.”
SC of Shreveport, LA
“The Tatuaje Havana VI Angeles is rated a 93 by Cigar Afficionado and deserves every single point. This is a powerful (POWERFUL!!!) small cigar that packs a punch but remains smoooooth to the very end. The hard part is finding them...GOOD LUCK!”
DM of Jasper, AL
“Quite a nice cigar. Strongish without being harsh and with an excellent ash, burn and flavour. Spicy and a bet peppery The pre-light aroma almost makes you want to not light the thing! Well made and attractive. Must get some more of these.”
MC of MLeesburg, VA
“When I belly-up to the counter at my local shop, this is my usual selection. The Havana VI is just an incredible cigar. The opening puff is so incredible it defies description....the only thing I can call it would be an intense and crisp leathery spice. The burn and draw on these are the most consistent in all of Pete Johnson's already L'oeuvre-worthy masterpieces. They are full flavored and complex. Easily one of the most delicious cigars I have ever smoked...and worth every cent.”
JP of Xenia, OH
“Reading the reviews of this cigar you get both ends of the spectrum. Not sure how anyone can complain of the draw and flavor I find them both outstanding. At the mid-way point this thing turns into a monster that you can't believe you only paid 6 bucks. The burn is incredible, draw is flawless flavor intensifies on last third. Very impressive smoke!”
HB of Edgewood, MD
“A $2 smoke at best. Not much flavor, flavor is not that good. Two thirds of the way through it became bitter.”
TS of Knoxville, TN
“Absolutely in love with the (Tatuaje Havana VI). I've got two boxes so far, and I'm intending on hoarding more as the wallet(and the wife) permits. One heck of a cigar, and it just happens to be on the cheaper side of Tatuaje's cigars, which works very well for me!”
MT of Lincoln, NE
“This cigar is Pete Johnson's trademark cigar and after a 5 pack its easy to know why. Tatuaje is a medium bodied cigar that is semi sweet and very intriguing until the end. The flavors have a hint of cherry, small notes of coffee and a great flavorful aftertaste that lasts. This is one of a kind cigar and when I mean one of a kind, i mean one that you dont want to put down. I would give this cigar a 93 rating.”
SP of Winona, MN
“well i tried this cigar for one reason..the first review on this cigar was from someone who thought this cigar was a complete waste of money..every other review was positive....this was a nice cigar with plenty of taste and body.the appearance was not to my liking,but i did not let that stop my review.it was a nice medium bodied cigar with plenty going for it..i would buy it again.i gave it a 86/100. ....”

Diesel VS. Tatuaje Havana VI

Posted by Brandon S

By popular demand I’m switching up my normal mantra of reviewing a cigar and giving it my personal rating…for this round I’ve decided to review 2 CIGARS! That’s right gents…side by side comparison of two truly boutique blends – The Diesel Unholy Cocktail vs. Tatuaje Havana VI. Both of these blends have received high praise from consumers since they hit the market and well, I’m gonna see how they stack up against each other…mano y mano – or I guess it would be cigaro y cigaro.

First, I’ll select the vitolas for this matchup:

DIESEL – No brain power necessary for this one. Only comes in one size, dubbed the Unholy Cocktail – it’s a stout 5x56 belicoso that comes packed in a box of 30.

HAVANA VI – This selection took some consideration. There are 2 sizes that share similarities to the Diesel Unholy Cocktail. There’s the Gorditos - a 5.5x56 standard parejo that’s slightly longer with the same ring gauge OR, the Artistas - a 6.25x52 Torpedo that shares the same shape as the Diesel. Hmmm…I’m going to go with the Gorditos.

                Next, the wrapper and the blends:

DIESEL – Blended by Abdel Fernandez in Nicaragua, the Diesel is constructed with top-notch Nicaraguan long-fillers and finished with a gorgeous Pennsylvania Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. Once only utilized as a binder or for filler tobaccos, the PA Broadleaf is becoming increasingly popular among manufacturers for use as a wrapper. It yields a spicy yet sweet character that true maduro wrappers are known for and an extra layer of power to boot.

HAVANA VI – Tatuaje’s Havana VI is a Nicaraguan Puro meaning that the entire cigar is made from tobacco grown in Nicaragua. It utilizes a Nicaraguan Corojo 99 wrapper and is manufactured by Pepin Garcia in his shiny new Nicaraguan factory.

                Third, the flavor and body:

DIESEL – I’ll admit, I’ve burned literally dozens of these since they were released, and every time I am greeted with a medium-full bodied experience that is nothing short of uber-complex. There is a spiciness on the front of the palate and a nice peppery yet sweet finish that keeps me coming back for more. As the cigar develops it tops out with one heck of a full-bodied crescendo.

HAVANA VI – I’ve had a few of these in my time in various shapes and sizes. The Nicaraguan tobaccos really shine through on this blend giving it the trademark Cuban-esque flavor that Pepin has come to be known for.

                And Finally – Price:

DIESEL – Pricing for this cigar goes above and beyond the call of duty in my opinion. Available for around $3 per stick…the price of a cup of coffee at your swankier joints – it’s a no-brainer to at least test a few out.

HAVANA VI – This line is a little more ‘spensive than the Diesel. Suggested retail on the particular vitola for this review is $7.50. But, looking at the other cigars that Tatuaje offers I guess the Havana VI would be considered their “budget” line.

                To cap off this review, I must say that looking at these two truly Boutique blends, you can’t go wrong with either of them. But when it comes down to it, I’m tilting my hand in favor of the Diesel Unholy Cocktail. Is it price? Maybe...  After burning through a 5-pack of each for this review I find the Unholy Cocktail to be a more unique and enjoyable experience and the Havana VI to be similar to cigars that you can find at a lower price point. Now I may get chastised for that last sentence since Tatuaje has a die-hard following that would likely view my opinion as blasphemy but I’m not saying that the Havana VI is a bad blend at all. I’ve enjoyed every one that I’ve had. All I’m saying is I liked the Diesel a little more…that’s all!!!
