Pete Johnson of Tatuaje blended the Series P back in 2006 in style of medium bodied Cuban cigars. At the same time, he wanted to create a very inexpensive cigar, 60% medium filler to 40% long filler tobacco ratio made that possible. Presented with a nice medium brown wrapper, small veins and tight seams, it’s hard to tell this cigar is at such a low price point.

The flavor profile started off mild to medium bodied with notes of cedar sweetness, dry earth and a mild spice. From start to finish that was as exciting as it got. There was a slight floral note on the finish, but mostly a Nicaraguan tobacco flavor dominated and lasted on the palate.
The construction was very impressive for a cigar that uses 60% medium filler. Most importantly, the ash held on for over an inch every time which I definitely didn’t expect. Unfortunately, the flavor profile just didn’t perform for me and became very boring to smoke the second half because it made no transitions and ended up slightly bitter. At this price point it would still make a great cigar to have when you didn’t want to think, just smoke. Total smoke time ended at about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
