Introducing La Casita Criolla, Pete Johnson’s latest endeavor. A reflection of his ingenuity, the La Casita is a cigar made exclusively with Connecticut broadleaf tobaccos. You heard correct - the filler, binder, and wrapper are all premium broadleaf, and the entire line is manufactured in Don Pepin’s prestigious My Father factory in Nicaragua. Traditionally, broadleaf is too expensive to use for an entire cigar. As a result, most manufacturers utilize the leaf as a wrapper or binder - where its flavorful characteristics bring balance and character to a cigar. Sparing no expense, Pete Johnson packed the finest broadleaf tobaccos into one solitary blend. The end result is flavor bomb that delivers a smooth, rich, and medium-bodied experience. This unique blend truly shines as La Casita produces a slow burn bringing forth plentiful notes of cedar, nuts, cocoa and syrupy sweetness. Never bitter, and exceedingly smooth, Casita might be the most flavorful Tatuaje to date.
“Hands down one of the best cigars I have tried this year....in fact, every Tatuaje label has been.....La Casita is loaded with flavor. I picked up strong tastes of cinnamon spice, leather, and toast in the corona size. The use of entirely Connecticut broad leaf is sheer genius. I highly recommend these if you like loads of flavor.”

“I would rate this cigar as an easy contender for cigar of the year. Absolutely flawless construction, unparalleled flavors, perfect burn, chalk white ash. It's hard to describe the plethora of flavors that caress the palette, yet as intense in flavor as it is the cigar is medium bodied. Perfect with a morning cup of coffee or tea. La Casita Criolla is Tatuaje at their finest....who would have thought that an American Puro could be so darned good?”

“I was looking for a medium strength (nicotine) cigar in a corona size. I cracked one of these open immediately on delivery and it was exactly what I was looking for. Great burn, plenty of thick smoke, never harsh, great flavor and aromas. I enjoyed this stick from beginning to end - and didn't want it to end!”

“As I'm writing this, I'm smoking it in a LANCERO vitola. The flavors are spot on. With an additional sweet, spicy leather to the mix. One of Tatuaje's best. You can't go wrong with Pete Johnson's line of cigars.”
