Tatuaje Verocu Tubo

Back in the summer of 2007, Tatuaje released a more full-bodied blend of their Havana VI line (a.k.a. the Tatuaje Red Label) called the Verocu. Two sizes were released: the 5″ x 54 Zona del Este and the 6″ by 52 Lado Occidental. On a take off of the Cuban regional release, the former was distributed east of the Mississippi River and the latter west of it. They proved to be popular, but only a finite number was made, and except for trades, the original Verocus are longer available. In November 2009, Pete Johnson released a new version of the Verocu in a tubo. The blend and wrapper remained the same, and are now delivered in a 6-1/8″ x 52 torpedo in a bright red aluminum tube. (A Tatuaje Black tubo was also released at the same time, and I’ll be smoking that with you next week.) The Verocu Tubos come in beautiful 10 count red boxes that are incredibly heavy in comparison to most cigar boxes, and MSRP is $11 per cigar.

Final Thoughts

Even though this sample didn’t quite live up to the others I smoked, I still highly recommend this cigar. The Verocu blend is highly flavorful, and worth picking up while it is available. The construction quality is high as well. I definitely recommend picking some up. Splitting a box with a friend (like I did) is definitely a good idea.

Nice looking chair man! I need that to replace my big comfy chair lol

I smoked both the black and red and I have to say, I liked the red better. I thought it was smoother and milder for my tastes, so I imagine you will like the black better LOL.


Nice review Charlie.
