Welcome to another Member sponsored Geek Critique generously sponsored by our member Adwinistrator (Ryan).  This was done as a blind review so there were no pre-concieved notions about what anyone was smoking.  The cigar provided for this round is the Tatuaje Tuxtla Lomo de Cerdo LE.

Lomo de Cerdo means "pork loin" in Spanish, and Pete Johnson has cleverly packaged these in butcher paper, included safe handling instructions! The Tatuaje Tuxtla Lomo de Cerdo is a limited edition cigar that is based on the Pork Tenderloin (a cigar that was originally released in 2010 as a shop exclusive to a Boston, Massachusetts retailer and gained a cult-following). Fast forward to 2023, the Tatuaje Tuxtla Lomo de Cerdo is back with a Mexican San Andres wrapper replacing the original Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.  Like the Pork Tenderloin, the Tuxtla Lomo de Cerdo uses Nicaraguan tobacco for the binders and fillers. Its handmade in Nicaragua by My Father Cigars.

Ring Gauge:
Country of Origin:
This cigar was enjoyed with American Honey Bourbon

Pre-Light: 8 Points of 10 Possible

Cute little pig-tail on this little fella. The wrapper was smooth with minimal veins. The prelight smell was maybe some Earth, barnyard and leathers. It has a nice smooth appearance a and wrapper. This appears to be a toro size cigar.

Lighting and Burn: 12 Points of 15 Possible

I clipped this cigar with a punch cut right over the pigtail. The first quarter inch or so and I'm still not getting much of a draw. The punch cut was a waste of time and I clipped it again and with a guillotine cutter and it produced an ample amount of thick smoke.

Construction: 27 Points of 30 Possible

Great looking smooth cigar, looks like a Connecticut Broadleaf was used for the wrapper. The burn straightened out and burned razor sharp with  a pretty silver looking ash which held well. It appeared to be really well rolled.  

Flavor and Aroma: 35 Points of 45 Possible

When I first lit this cigar I got some heavy leather and bitter dark chocolate flavors. It started a little on the stout side but became smoother about an inch or so in. I swear I tasted a flavor of Tootsie Rolls in the second half. It picked up in strength and I couldn't finish this smoke in the last third. Maybe having COVID twice and bronchitis once, may have affected my palate as far as enjoying strength of a cigar goes. This cigar had some kick to it towards the end! It got slightly bitter towards the end so I didn't nub it out past a couple of inches or so.


Hmmmmmmmm, lets see here, I'm not that familiar with the cigars that have a pigtail cap. I think CAO has one called Basis or something to that effect. I've seen them on C-Bid and a few other sites but I have yet to try one. That's my guess but I know I'm not even close????
