Where the drinks are hotter than the chili sauce.
Mexican wrappers are something you don’t see coming from Pete Johnson too often. The first was on a super limited Monsters release, and the second came in 2011 with the limited regional line, the Mexican Experiment. About 500 bundles were made in two different sizes that shipped to retailers in Florida and New England, and these days, that cigar stands as one of the best Tatuajes ever made. And that’s saying a lot from the company that arguably does LEs better than anyone else in the biz. Now the Mexican Experiment is set to return to stores, but this time it’s regular production, and it’s here to stay.
The Tatuaje Mexican Experiment II (or ME II) features the same anatomy as the original, a Mexican San Andres wrapper over Nicaraguan binders and fillers. Available in four sizes, this cigar is a powerhouse and a classic expression of Mexican tobacco flavors. A solid core of earth and chocolate is joined by pepper, wood, coffee, and clay, and features extraordinary complexity and a long, rich finish. When you pick up a box of Tatuaje ME II, you’ll agree that Pete Johnson’s Mexican Experiment was a resounding success.
