Source : Gifted from Todd Kauffman AND Rick Frescatore
This week I am doing the Tatuaje Pudgy Monsters Frank from the Pudgy set Pete released. This set was a gift from Todd Kauffman (Kauffman’s barbershop in Wrightsville – I know, me friends with a barber, go figure. He still scares me if he has scissors in his hands.) AND Rick Frescatore (I was not informed Rick was involved in the plot to get me a box of these so I updated this post to reflect) so I figured I might as well start right on them since it is the Halloween season.
This Tatuaje Pudgy Monsters Frank is box pressed with a rustic dark wrapper and a nice surgical stitched seam up the back.
Starting off this Tatuaje Pudgy Monsters Frank with a blast of spicy pepper, some wood and a little bit of a floral note. Has a bit of strength to it right off the bat. Not long into this and a nice deep dark chocolate comes into play and seems to change the floral to a fruity taste. If you ever had something like a dark chocolate covered raspberry jelly candy then you will get it. Hopped back on camera before halfway due to tar showing its ugly head. I snipped a bit off the end and should be good to go. Strong dark fruity chocolate through the end with the peppery spice picking up. A pretty strong cigar so make sure you are ready for it.
Would I buy it again? By itself no due to the power but in the set, we will have to see as I make my way through the others.

I enjoyed each and every cigar in the Pudgy Monster set. I agree about the Face and you will find that the Face in the Pudgy Monsters set is absolutely fantastic. They were all enjoyable but IMHO – it was the best in the set. Personally, I felt like the Frank JR was the best in the Little Monsters’ offering. Thanks for the review Mike. Nice shirt!
Thanx John! Wish i could have made Delaware Cigar Fest this year 🙁
Hey mike, I just got a box of those also. I smoked the tiff it was nice. Do you think the v cut contributes to the tar issue as all the smoke is concentrated in that small opening? any way look forward to the rest of the reviews.
Honestly I do not know. I have gotten tar with a punch, v-cut and straight cut so it seems like the smaller cuts may help to funnel it to some extent but I dont think it contributes per se.
Tar is my enemy!!!!
Mike, that isn’t tar, it’s the raspberry jelly leaking out.
Always great to see a review from you.
LMAO – I will send you some to taste test 😉
Mike, really enjoy the openings to the review,very ”cool”, and a good review on the cigar.
If the next word you use is “hip” I am going to be a little scared hahhaaha. Thanx for watching man.
Groovy review mike. Might have to give it a shot if my b&m gets any more in soon.
