Pete Johnson of Tatuaje will be releasing 3 wrappers this year for his Cojonu series; a Connecticut Broadleaf, Ecuadorian Sumatra, and a Habano.  The Connecticut Broadleaf and Ecuadorian Sumatra will be released at Casa de Montecristo on March 21st with an official book signing with Pete Johnson himself.  All 3 wrappers will officially be released at this year’s IPCPR in August.

The book that will be available on March 21st will consist of 12 Connecticut Broadleaf and 12 Ecuadorian Sumatra, so those are the two cigars I will review. 

The Connecticut Broadleaf has a gorgeous dark brown wrapper.  There were no veins lines that I could see and it was virtuously seamless!   The cigar was firm to the touch with no visible imperfections.  The cap was beautifully constructed. 

This cigar smoked beautifully!  The draw was effortless and smooth.  The burn was nice and even.  I noticed a spicy undertone throughout.  The cigar was creamy with coffee notes also lending a sweet undertone. 

The Ecuadorian Sumatra had a dark reddish brown almost milk chocolate colored wrapper.  There were very few veins and again was seamless!  This cigar was also firm to the touch with no visible imperfections.  The cap on this cigar was perfect and well constructed. 

Both cigars are creamy!  But this one had an almost savory spice to it! Not the traditional Tatuaje spice but very pleasing and noticeable to the palate.  I picked up on coffee and espresso with almost a smoked, savory finish. 

Both cigars are simply fantastic! I would smoke these cigars again and again!  These are the type of cigars that would hold up well next to a nice scotch or whiskey after a long day!
