In my last write up I covered the Tatuaje Mexican Experiment , which showcased Pete Johnson’s initial interest in San Andres wrapper and what could be accomplished with it. Well, I guess you can say the Experiment went well. This year, Tatuaje has decided to drape three of their regular production blends in a San Andres wrapper. In that, the TUXTLA is born. Named after San Andrés Tuxta, the city which is the epicenter of Mexico’s Premium tobacco production. San Andres Tuxtla was known as Los Tuxtlas for some time, and is still called that by some today.
The three elected blends for the TUXTLA are the Avion, the 7th(Brown Label), and the T110. The T110 is the same dimensions as the former T110 blends, a little under 4& 1/2 inches x 52 RG. The San Andres wrapper on the T110 particularly is not quite as dark as the wrapper used on the Mexican Experiment- and also not nearly as toothy. The cigar is of medium body in my opinion, transitioning to a medium full towards the half way point. Construction is spot on. Cedar, deep cocoa, pepper, and slight sweetness were observed through the hour long smoking time. At certain points the flavors resembled a spicy hot chocolate, which I must say was quite enjoyable.
The T110 TUXTLA has the most production out of the three blends chosen for this limited release. The T110 has 4,000 cabinets of 25 released, as the other two only have 2,000 cabinets each in circulation. If you have enjoyed previous production of the T110, I would recommend you at least give this cigar a whirl. If for any reason, to see how much a wrapper can change the course of a cigar’s profile, even when the guys stay the same.
