Filler: Nicaraguan

Binder: Nicaraguan

Wrapper: Nicaraguan

Size: 4×40

Today I’m bringing you my go to short smoke when time isn’t really available. This week has been rough with everyday being over 100 degrees and it hitting 117 and 110 on Friday and Saturday. With me having to smoke outdoors it wasn’t really ideal to sit outside for long periods of time. I was sent a few of these cigars by Tony Casas a few months back and quickly became addicted to them. These cigar is easily an everyday go to smoke considering that they are right around $4 a stick and a cabinet of 50 costs just under $200. They usually take around 45 mins to an hour to smoke and are far worth the money spent of them. These cigars are made in Don Pepin’s  My Father Factory and are a member of the Havana XI line.

Pre Light

The wrapper of the Verocu is a dark brown with very minimal veins running through it. It has a classic Cuban triple cap as do most Tatuaje products with Pete Johnson being a lover of the classic Cuban style. The aroma off the cold wrapper is of a very sweet barnyard. The cap comes off very easily and the draw is perfect.

Flavor

With the size of this cigar being kind of on the small size I’m not going to break this one up into thirds. When you light up the Verocu you are immediately hit in the face with that Pepin pepper but it’s not overwhelming. In the background you are met with some nice sweet chocolate notes along with some wood flavors. The flavors in this tiny cigar are very strong and delicious throughout. The spice dies out but is the ramped back up as you reach towards the 3 inch mark.

Overall

It is safe to say that these cigars have become my favorite quick smoke cigar and are well worth the minimal price that they are sold for. This tiny cigar is packed with flavors. Putting off tons of smoke and are very well constructed. You definitely need to get your hands on these and with that being said if you leave a comment and let me know what your favorite quick smoke is I will randomly pick someone and send you a 10 pack. So let’s see those comments!
