Oenophiles (wine lovers) might not even be familiar with the term "negociant". It refers to a vintner who buys grapes from various vineyards to create their own special blends. What does that have to do with cigars, you may well ask? That's the formula that Pete Johnson used in making Tatuaje Negociant. He worked with the Garcia family to select a variety of leaf to make this singular blend.
Made in the My Father factory, Tatuaje Negociant sports a silky, golden Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper which conceals dual binders - one from Mexico, and the other from Nicaragua. Underneath lies a collection of Cuban-seed tobaccos from Nicaragua to create a medium-bodied cigar with lots of roasted nut flavors with some dried fruit sweetness and a bit of black pepper. If you're looking for a cigar that's not too heavy, not too mellow, but with tons of character, this may become your new favorite.
