Tatuaje ME II is a brand that cigar fanatics have clamored for for seven long years! This is because of a limited-edition project Tatuaje released in 2012, dubbed Tatuaje Mexican Experiment. Once thought to be a retired to the history books, Tatuaje reintroduced the blend in 2019 as Mexican Experiment II (or ME II), now being regular production and boasting a slightly amped-up version of the original blend.
With ME II, company owner, Pete Johnson, successfully reengineered the fan-favorite original blend, selecting all-Nicaraguan binder/fillers and finalizing the cigar in its signature Mexican San Andrés wrapper (hence the Mexican Experiment name). Additionally, Pete altered some of the tobacco primings, making for a slightly stronger, noticeably punchier version of the original Mexican Experiment. Offered in four of the original five sizes, ME II is the die-hard enthusiast's dream come true! The cigar burns with a prototypical Nicaraguan/Mexican maduro profile, including fiery flavors of black pepper, earth, espresso, dark chocolate, and a dark molasses sweetness.
