Derek he's a dangerous man, but since he's also very knowledgeable I risked unsteady ground to ask him to confirm what the wrapper for the M80 was; even though I'd tried to avoid such measures as to walk into what I guessing is his favorite trap. Dumb move on my part, nonetheless thank you Speedy for your knowledge and generosity. I know you didn't' ask but I hope you(and BOTL) enjoy this brother, it was definitely my pleasure to smoke this for the review.
Tatuaje M80- Released in Summer '11
Wrapper- Ecuadorian Habano Maduro
The Rest- Nicaraguan
Construction/Appearance- A great looking short robusto with a long wick on the top of it's cap. Dark brown with a slight redness, some veins. It's uniformly firm from cap to foot with great weight and feel.
Burn/Draw-Great draw, the burn is even in the beginning but soon requires touch ups for the wrapper.
Flavor/Aroma- A genuine power hog, perfect the end of the night. Full bodied and full flavor. Complex and loaded with flavor. Nice finish at the end slightly harsh.
1/2-starts out with a blast of red/black pepper and leather leaving a great spicy/savory sensation then with those transitions to add coffee combined with dark chocolate and creaminess
Went out but after relight purged a 6 inch flame,WOW!
2/2-Same and now with black cherry and smokiness as pepper/spicy lessens
Burn time-1hr 25min.
Overall-9.3/10 A fantastic cigar, smok'em if you got'em!
