Alec Bradley Connecticut Robusto
5 x 50 - Natural - Single
Alec Bradley Connecticut cigars contain a blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran longfillers, with Honduran binders and Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrappers. The cigars are mild to medium in strength, with a little more spice and complexity than you'd expect from a Connecticut cigar. Perfect for those who appreciate a flavorful milder cigar, or for the fuller-bodied smoker looking for a mellow or morning burner that still has plenty of flavor.
Draw was rather tight. Light-to-medium body with medium Honduran tobacco flavors and a nutty aftertaste. Creamy on the palate with no bitterness or sourness whatsoever. Would make a good introductory cigars for newbies. The stick I received from Famous showed three green spots on the wrapper. 86-87+ points could be 89 points if they fix the tight draw.
Smooth, fine taste, with a good draw. Decidedly more mild than medium. Well constructed but burn became a little uneven near the end. Be warned: the wrapper is very fragile. I like this cigar!
Nice cigar, definitely more on the mild side. Easy draw. Well made, packed filler. Wrapper was rather thin. Like tissue paper thin. Nice mild vanilla almost creme brûlée mid way through. Like Coors Light. Mild, nothing mind blowing but decent.
Wonderful taste, one of the best draws ever. More mild than medium. Hint of spice about 1/4 down. Other than that, just mild tobacco and nutty flavour. Alec Bradley must just have some great tobacco right now because they are top of the food chain in my opinion, lots of great (and relatively affordable) sticks out there.
