Today brings us the Tatuaje Boris in it's only vitola a 7x49. The Boris is an off shoot of the prolific Tatuaje Monster Series which features a new release every year. First The Frank, then The Drac, then The Face and then The Wolfman this year. The Boris was done the same year as the Drac and is considered an out of costume Frank to pay homage to Boris Karloff the actor who played Frankenstein's monster in the 1931 horror film classic Frankenstein. Only 1000 boxes were produced and each contained 10 Boris which has made it to say the least highly sought after and hard to find. The Boris features Nicaraguan long fillers and binder with an Ecuadorian Sumatra Rosado wrapper. Reviews say that you get a nutty, peppery, spicy cigar with hints of peppermint and leather. I chose this for today's cigar based on what occurred on this day in 1861. President Lincoln signed into effect Public Resolution 82 which contained the provision for a Navy Medal of Honor. The Medal of Honor is the highest award that can be bestowed upon a member of the United States Military. 3475 medals have been awarded to 3456 different people. I chose the Boris to tie to this as just as it pays homage to the tradition of Boris Karloff just as the Medal of Honor pays homage to the extreme sacrifices and brave actions taken by those who have been awarded it.
