As you may have noticed in a previous blog about autumn cigars, Tatuaje’s Mummy blend from their Skinny Monsters line was mentioned as an ideal smoke for the fall. Now that we’re closer to Halloween, it seems appropriate to spotlight other entries in this sub-brand of horror-themed 6 x 38 Lanceros.
Let’s kick things off with an homage to a classic. The Drac is obviously a nod to Bram Stoker’s timeless character Count Dracula. As such, the cigar is appropriately cloaked in a dark wrapper that boasts many complex flavors. Sweet notes like raisin and chocolate mingle seamlessly with elements of wood and earth for a flavor profile that is truly singular.
Perhaps less obvious of a reference, the Face is an ode to Leatherface—the maniac at the heart of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise. Apart from the peppery, hickory-smoked flavor that this stick puts forward, there are also hints of cocoa and, yes, leather.
This tribute to Friday the 13th antagonist Jason Voorhees features a beautiful Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper on top of a Nicaraguan binder and filler leaves. The top-notch construction of the Jason is complemented with a bitter-sweet flavor profile. Notes of espresso and vanilla can be discerned among a backdrop of cedar and earthiness.
Named after Chucky, the killer doll from 1988’s Child’s Play, Tatuaje’s Chuck sports an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that’s as rustic as it is flavorful. This stick is perfect for someone looking for a toasty smoke. Its flavor profile includes notes of peanuts and bread with hints of citrus buried beneath.
Launched alongside Chuck, Tiff is named after Chucky’s bride, Tiffany. Among the many dark wrappers found in the Skinny Monsters line, the Tiff has a noticeably bright Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. While other blends in the line may have a chocolatey sweetness that is tempered with earthy bitterness, the Tiff offers a more creamy sweetness complemented by pepper and cinnamon.
So what are you scared of? The only thing to fear is fear itself—well, that and missing out on these cigars. They were released in extremely limited quantities and won’t be around forever. Get yours today!
