Looking for Advice on Tatuaje Cigars

People really seem to like these cigars so I am deciding to give them a try, but I don't know where to start. 

Can you recommend a box to buy?

    By fivers Don't buy a box to start sample as many flavors as you can and then figure out which box to buy.
    I like casita Criolla and riqueza out of the easy to find ones but I also like just about everyone I can get my hands on.

    They make a Lancero sampler, if you like skinny cigars.  You'd have a change to try a few blends. The cabaiguan, cazadorez (brown label), and Fausto are very good.  The newer, tattoo is a great smoke, especially for the price. You almost cannot go wrong though, if you like a classic Nicaraguan profile

    My palate likes all tatuaje with the exception of the monsters, for some reason I don't care for them.  In my opinion pick up singles and if you really like it try another one, if after the second one you still really like it buy the box.  For this brand it will probably be difficult because they are all really really good.  My first tatuaje box was the 7th capa especial, this was quickly followed by others.

    I've had very few, all were good.  I remember liking the La Riqueza a LOT.

    there has never been a tat that I would not smoke again however some have been better than others.  

    I like the idea of the lancero sampler box but if you are not a lancero fan then I would try to get a few 5ers of different ones before going with a box of anything.

    Havana VI Verocu, 10 yr anniversary, tattoo, Reserva's, black for his regular stuff would be good things to look into IMO.

     Havana VI, Black, Cabaiguan, La Riqueza and Tattoo for $34.

    You got your name changed! Good!

    Do that sampler, and swing back here and let us know your thoughts on each

    Miami is good also. Got a little age on some tattoos and they are very enjoyable. 

    One thing I enjoy doing is checking out the what are you smoking threads and looking them up. Buying a box of tattoo I think would be fairly safe but I prefer buying 5 packs and 10 packs on sale or auctions. I figure it gives you a couple to try to see if you like them, unless they are totally horrid I like to try at least 2 at different interval of rest/age before passing judgement. And say you don't like em  it gives you trade or ammo sticks.

    I'm personally not a fan of MOST samplers. I prefer  smaller ring cigars and not a fan of cones. Most samplers have larger cigars and or throw in less disireable cigars to get the count up. But that's just my .02.
