Tatuaje Fausto cigars are probably the strongest in Pete Johnson’s portfolio. An old-time discontinued Cuban brand inspires the cigar name. It was crafted in the My Father factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, under the watchful eyes of a renowned cigar maker, Don ‘Pepin’ Garcia. Fausto cigar is an extension of an original line of Tatuaje cigars called T110. T stands for “thermonuclear,” while 110 is the size of a cigar in millimeters. The cigars in the Fausto line are also named in that pattern- an FT for Fausto and a number for the vitolas in millimeters. Both Fausto and T110 contain the same blend.
The cigars are dressed in a dark, oily, and lustrous Ecuadorian Habano Maduro wrapper with dark chocolate-like, hay, peppery, leathery, and spicy aroma. In them are well-aged Nicaragua long fillers and binders grown in the highly volcanic regions of Esteli and Jalapa. Emblazoned in the cigar cabinet box is an image of the devil, and the band is red-hued, showing the real mysterious strength and boldness of the cigars. Fausto cigars are available in five different vitolas: FT140 Robusto Extra (5 ½" x 52), FT114 Short Robusto (4 ½" x 52), FT153 Toro (6" x 50), FT127 Robusto (5" x 54), and FT166 Short Churchill (6 ½" x 48). Fausto cigars’ strength is not overwhelming to mask the flavors and aromas of the cigars. They are rich, flavorful, smooth, creamy, well-balanced, and draw flawlessly. You are definitely in for an ecstasy time. Grab a box from our cigar collection today.
