These Tatiana groovy blue cigarillos are fantastic! I really had no idea what the flavor would be like when I ordered them but I thought I would give them a try because they sounded interesting and different. I was just amazed by the combination of the raspberries, honey, vanilla, and cognac flavors. That's definitely not a combination I would have ever thought of but it was so rich and delicious it was like a dessert. Of course, with a cigarillo this sweet, I could only really smoke one in an evening without getting a little overwhelmed by the sweet flavor. But as a nice after-dinner smoke, this Tatiana cigar is really pleasantly surprising and tasty. The aroma that burned with it was also really pleasant. I wish they were a bit cheaper because I am completely hooked on them.
I was browsing the BnB Tobacco website looking for a smaller cigar that I could smoke during my lunch break. I decided to give Tatiana Groovy Blue Mini Cigarillos a try. A fantastic quality cigarillo at an equally fantastic price. I shared them with several of my cigar smoking friends and now they want to get their own. So off to BnB Tobacco I sent them. They are fast becoming my favorite cigarillos, and on top of that my wife loves the tin and has claimed them as her own.
Now, to be fair, I am not the most experienced smoker. But I think these deserve a review: Upon opening the tin, your nose is greeted with wonderfully warm, rich chocolate aroma. It burns well and at a leisurely pace. It begins with rich but mild sensation, which wears gently into a bit of a bolder bite, especially if you draw too quickly. Unfortunately, the chocolate is nearly impossible to detect once lit, but it still retains an even, slightly sweet taste. If you want a slight sweetness, it's a great smoke. I prefer Tatiana's Waking Dream, but I am contemplating buying another tin of this just to sniff without even lighting!
Now, to be fair, I am not the most experienced smoker. But I think these deserve a review: Of anything I've smoked so far, these are definitely my favorite. When you open the tin, you're greeted by a light, sweet aroma that is distantly reminiscent of the tobacco's rum. The tobacco is sweet to the lips and tongue before you even light it. It's draw is rich, sweet, smooth, yet ever so slightly caustic in an invigorating, enjoyable way. As you smoke them, they gain a faint bite to them. These are wonderful smokes. They were my first smokes, and I loved them from the first puff. Even after I have smoked several other tobaccos, I still prefer these to anything else. The best part about smoking other tobaccos is coming back to these to rediscover just how good they are.
