Again, the Ambos Mundos is the first budget conscious cigar from Tatuaje. It is said it uses B and C grade tobacco based on appearance and fermentation. For some reason the Ambos Mundos No. 2 is far better than the No. 1

To me the Ambos Mundos No. 2 is so much different that the No. 1. I am just throwing a guess out there (since I can’t find too much information out there since Tatuaje has been redoing their site for the last few months) that the only difference is the wrapper. Which I find hard to believe since they are very different cigars. This isn’t a cigar you smoke quickly since it can start building notes of charcoal if you try to rush it. Overall a great cigar and one that I have no problems recommending.
Prelight – Grassy /Leather /Sweetness / Light Coffee.
1/3 – Grassy / Coffee / Leather.
2/3 – Grass / Leather / Hint Of Coffee.
Last Third – It started to get a strong charred taste so I let it sit for a few minutes and the charred taste was gone. At that point I just started smoking a lot slower.
Purchased: Tampa Humidor ( 3/18/2010 )
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Pick this one up its a great hour long smoke.
