A little while ago Dave was kind enough to send me some 2010 party shorts to do a comparison review between 2010s and the 2011s, I figured since I have some 2006s I would also add them to the mix.

Gifted to me 18 months ago. Nice burn, good sweetness of white chocolate. Was very enjoyable morning smoke.

Apparently the Tatuaje Cojonu line is a limited release cigar that is made only once every three years and only in one size. The first release, the Gran Cojonu 2003, was a 6 1/2 x 52 Churchill, while the current 2006 Cojonu is a 5 1/2 x 52 Torpedo.

Alrighty fellas, the Padilla Achilles. Now I saw a great review on here the other day of the new one and remembered how much I liked the original release '06s. They're a pretty simple smoke, but I kinda like that. I don't think I'm too alone in thinking that.

I picked up 2 boxes of these today. There are a lot of differences in the boxes
size, colors on seal, hinges, latch etc which I can understand. Hencho is 2 different names.
What I question is the date of August 11 2006 in black on one box and not on the other. The other stamps are I assume...

I picked this up as part of a Sampler trade with Blaylock.
To be honest, I wasn't expecting anything special.
With all the 5 Vegas stuff constantly thrown at us by CI/Cbid, I kind of assumed it was just another house brand.
