        I think I have a couple of those. Smoked one, and it had a pretty distinct floral overtone. Same with you?

      Just finished up a Tat TAA 2012. What a smoke, should have bought a couple more boxes....

        Great smoke but I know a few people who had problems with splitting wrappers. Guess you got lucky with your box. I'm jealous.

        I'm on my second box. The trick with so many of the Tat (and Pepin) smokes is down time. My guess is that the binder / filler are just too wet, when you smoke them they expand and pop the wrapper. Other trick is to run the cigar under tap water just before you smoke it (I'm serious) and that will give the wrapper some flexibility and prevent a lot of wrapper bursts.

      Enough of this week. Just got back from a little too much Mexican food and several shots of Patron. Got a nice cool bottle of "The Abyss" that's about to get tapped, have to select a perfect cigar. A new box of Tatuaje Anarchy is in the bottom of the cabinet....Hmm....
