I figured since we’re giving away a box of these on Episode 101 of the Dog Watch Social Club Cigar Radio that we should actually review the cigar so the lucky winner out there knows what they are getting.
This has fastly become my “go to” cigar or my “cigar of choice” putting future purchases of my old stand by in jeapordy. The Series P from Tatuaje is the milder version of the other Tatuaje lines. It contains the same filler as the Havana VI that Brian reviewed awhile back but the Series P is made up of 60% medium and 40% long filler instead of the full long filler of the Havana VI. I guess its the medium filler that makes the Series P a medium bodied cigar.
Some have said that the flavor is flat and I assume they mean that the cigar doesn’t change. Its flavor profile is static and its simplicity is what I love the most about this cigar. Simple cigar band, classic size, simple flavors that can be enjoyed anytime of day. The flavor profile consists of a sweet natural tobacco flavor with a slight spicey undertone.
In my experience I have run into some burn problems but considering that these were just introduced in October 2006, they can only get better by spending some quality time maturing in the humidor. I just don’t have the patience to do that cause these guys are so addicting. I’ve found myself smoking one after another like I’m some chain smoking cigerette fiend. They are that good! While this maybe the easiest to find Tatuaje line and maybe get overlooked by the success of the other lines, don’t sleep on them. Go now, order from AtlanticCigar.com. Box prices aren’t published on their site so you will have to call your order in or if you’re ordering other cigars online add a comment to add a box of Tatuaje Series P (P1) to your order for (Price edited out, please call for pricing 1-800-887-7877). Also be sure to mention The Stogie Review. You won’t get any discount but it would just help us if we have any future dealings with them.

Jerry man! You should win an Oscar for this! Seriously, you are the man when it comes to fun to watch cigar reviews! Awesome rebound from last week…I have a feeling Atlantic Cigars is gonna be swamped with orders for these! I know I’m placing an order first thing in the morning.
Okay I’m not sure what is more hilarious. You catching stuff on fire or watching you trying to pronounce cigar brands? Walt needs to get you drunk and video tape you trying to pronounce them all. Talk about a funny video!
Like Kirk said, great rebound from last week. This is the Jerry we’ve all come to admire.
We are all addicted to your videos bro. 9 minutes isn’t as long as I thought it was! I need more! Can’t wait for Episode 4!
As always Jerry, a very entertaining review! Thanks for sharing the deal you found at Atlantic.
Great video. Sounds like another cigar I’m going to have to put on my list of cigars to try. Have to wait a bit, humidors are full 🙁 But I’m solving that problem one cigar at a time. And a great problem it is to have. Although, my wife is giving me a bit of a hard time heh. So time to start smoking and quit collecting. Whoa is me.
But when I’ve got some room, looks like I know where to get a box of replacement cigars.
Between you, Brian and Walt, man, so many great cigars to try. Thanks for the effort you three put in to steer us to some great smokes.
Interesting review. I’m eager to try this line. One question: With that much cut filler, is aging in the humidor really going to have much impact?
George my man! Glad to see another Stogie Guy here!
Aging was probably a bad word to use. What I was referring to, I’m not sure if the burn problem is something that is just inherit in all Tatuaje lines or if it goes to having excess moisture in the wrapper of the cigar. Having them sit in the humidor could give it some extra time to shed that excess moisture and give the wrapper a proper moisture level. I’m assuming the cut filler isn’t the cause to the burn problems because the burn problems have been mentioned in most of the other Tatuaje lines.
Jerry…I did some research on this and found that you’re right about most having some burn issues with the Tatuaje lines. I think you’re on the right path with giving the cigar time to balance out its moisture properties.
In the normal context of aging a cigar most think you are referring to improving the taste of the cigar whereas in your review you’re using the term “age” to improve its burn qualities. That wasn’t very clear in the video but makes sense now that you explained it.
I ordered two boxes from Atlantic Cigars today and I know Kirk & Sid did too!
Jerry I ordered two boxes from Atlantic this morning. They did give me a hard time on the price but once I told them about the Stogie Review they honored the $70 price you mentioned. Were you not supposed to advertise that price?
I also picked up a pair at my B&M cause I can’t wait for the delivery. Had one at lunch today and I gotta tell you, dead on review! Your sweet natural taste with a spicey undertone and creamy texture translated to a ginger bread type taste. I know “ginger bread” isn’t a common cigar taste but thats what I think it translates too.
Thanks for another great cigar recommendation!
Vic – Half the things I say I don’t even understand what I’m talking about. But thanks for reassuring me that I’m not just talking out of my ass.
Kirk – Hmmm…they didn’t tell me not to advertise the price. They just said they couldn’t advertise the price on their site.
I wish Starbucks still had the Ginger Bread latte. I could so go for one now!
Vic, the Tatuajes I’ve had (Havana VI Angeles) burned much better after a few weeks in my humidor at 65%. The same can be said for the Don Pepin Cuban Classics, they all seem to arrive a bit damp.
Jerry, I got a strong aroma of gingerbread several times from the Havana VI Angeles I’ve smoked. So far unique to this line of cigars for me, I’ll have to pick up a Series P next time I’m in the B&M.
Great vid Jerry, I’m going to pick up a few sticks asap and give em a try.
BTW, what’s the name of that song you had playing in the middle of the review?
david – name of the song was “Do You Remember” by Jack Johnson…available on iTunes.
I smoked one of the white label robustos yesterday evening, definitely a great cigar for the money… similar taste profile to the red label. Also to note… if burned absolutely perfect.
I love this review Jerry; maybe you can do one on the brown label?
This is by far my favorite budget smoke…..
I know this is a old review but WOW holly shit this cigar is GREAT……..
