While the Tatuaje Fausto series has been on the radar of a lot of cigar and specificaly Tatuaje enthusiasts, there is one other blend that has caught the attention of many – the all-Connecticut Broadleaf Tatauje La Casita Criolla.
La Casita Criolla translates from Spanish to English “The Little Native House”. A lot of information has been made available already on this because this is basically what you would term a “American Puro” or “Connecticut Broadleaf Puro”. I’m not sure if I have seen another major or boutique produce such a blend. Still Tatuaje and Pete Johnson must get a lot of credit for breaking some new ground in innovation here. It will be interesting to see how other manufacturers respond to this one with similar creations

Since this is a Connecticut Broadleaf puro, this is Connecticut Broadleaf through and through. The wrapper appears a little lighter than most Connecticut Broadleafs that are available.
Wrapper: Connecticut Broadleaf
Binder: Connecticu Broadleaf
Filler: Connecticut Broadleaf
The cigar will be available in 3 vitolas and sold in boxes of 25:
HCB (Corona): 5 1/8 x 42
HCBC (Corona Gorda): 5 5/8 x 46
HCBF (Short Churchill): 6 1/2 x 48
I look forward to firing one of these up real soon and see how the innovation translates to taste. I’ve been told these are medium in strength.
Update 8/14/2011: Here is my formal assessment/review of the La Casita Criolla.
