Perdomo packed a decent amount of flavor in the Grand Cru 2006 Connecticut. The cigar is as mild as advertised, but its flavor is far from monotonous and dull. The initial third begins with mild spice, which is later joined by creaminess and nuts. Half the distance through, the cigar turns sweet while preserving the creaminess in the background. The final third transitions to more spice along with cedar, nuts, and sweetness. The final third was definitely my favorite part due to the variety of flavors present.

If you are looking for a mild cigar with some flavor, you cannot go wrong with the Grand Cru 2006 Connecticut Grand Churchill from Perdomo.  The cigar is smooth, has a great burn, and offers up a nice bouquet of flavors to keep things interesting.  Shipped in boxes of 24, the Grand Cru 2006 Connecticut Grand Churchill retails for $8.50 per single.  It’s not cheap, but the cigar gives you a lot of bang for your buck and is a solid choice for beginners or experienced smokers who enjoy milder smokes.

The Perdomo Grand Cru 2006 Connecticut Grand Churchill earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

Tatuaje Cojonu 2012 Habano

alt

I’m no stranger to the Cojonu 2012 series from Pete Johnson and the folks at Tatuaje cigars, as I already reviewed the Cojonu 2012 Reserva and the Cojonu 2012 Capa Especial.  Both were quite good, with the Capa Especial coming out on top in terms of rating.  Before I dive into reviewing the Cojonu 2012 Habano, I’ll give you a bit of a refresher on the Cojonu 2012 line.  It debuted at the 2012 IPCPR show and is part of a series that is released every three years by Tatuaje.  As for the name, Cojonu comes from the Spanish word Cojonudo, which essentially translates to “ballsy” in English. 

Like its counterparts in the Cojonu 2012 series, the Habano version comes in just one size, a 6 1/2 x 52 Toro.  The cigar is box-pressed and has a filler and binder of Nicaraguan tobaccos.  Where it differs from the other versions is its wrapper, which is of the Ecuadorian Habano variety.  Its strength is listed as full-bodied, which is no surprise considering the whole “ballsy” theme that accompanies the cigar.
