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.
