tatuaje cojonu 2009


tatcojonu Hopefully you had a great weekend and are ready for a couple of new reviews. Today we will begin by reviewing the Tatuaje Cojonu 2009, a special release from the brand and its owner, Pete Johnson. To wrap things up, we will discuss the Padron 2000 Maduro, and see if it smokes better than it looks.

Tatuaje Cojonu 2009

With his 2009 edition, Pete Johnson of Tatuaje cigars continued his tradition of releasing a new cigar from the Cojonu line once every three years. This tradition began in 2003 and was continued in 2006, until the most recent release in 2009. To help him with the line's production, Johnson enlisted the help Don Pepin Garcia, whose name is well known across the industry.

The Cojonu 2009 measures 7 x 49. The tobacco used to make the 2009 is of the first generation Cuban Seed variety. The filler, binder, and wrapper are all made from such Cuban Seed tobacco that has been grown in Nicaragua. All of the 2009 cigars are handmade in the Little Havana sector of Miami, Florida. Tatuaje only allows its best rollers to take part in the production. Each of the cigars is topped off with a triple cap and is constructed using old fashioned Cuban methods. In terms of strength, the 2009 is said to fit somewhere in between the categories of medium and full-bodied.

The first thing you might notice when looking at this stick is that it's quite dark and oily. There are plenty of veins that are visible throughout its body as well. Two decorative bands are located near the head. The top band shows the Tatuaje name printed across a scheme of white and red wine colors. Right below it is a larger band in gold and black that displays the Cojonu 2009 label. Feeling the cigar reveals that it is firm and packed tightly. Before striking it with a light, there is a strong spicy scent that is given off, and the cold taste is similar to coffee.

After being lit, the Cojonu 2009 smokes well, with just a few imperfections that are worth noting. The draw is great, and it produces solid white ash that looks good against its dark wrapper. The burn does tend to stray into uneven territory at times, so some touch-ups are needed. Luckily, the times that it does go uneven are manageable.
