Bold yet smooth, the Connecticut is made with a lovely golden Ecuadorian Connecticut shade grown wrapper, which brings the finesse. Initial tangy notes of lemon and cedar calm a bit, for a toasty, nutty smoke with hints of vanilla and anise. The golden wrapper gives off a dusty barnyard aroma while the cold draw tempts the palate with hints of black pepper. Buttery and smooth from the outset, the smoke brings into harmony the tastes of hearty oak and mild cream. The cigar approaches the nub, some nuts and spice become evident for a truly lip-smacking finish.
