Gran Habano #1 Connecticut Pyramid
6 1/8 x 52 - Natural - Box of 20
Gran Habano #1 Pyramid cigars present a mellow, yet rich tasting Honduran cigar of very high quality. Blended with mild Nicaraguan fillers and an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, the smoke is smooth and relaxing. If you smoke cigars like Macanudo, but want much more flavor, you'll like these.
Cigar stays lit, even waiting 10 mins between puffs. Even burn with a nice mild toasty and nutty flavor. I find the draw to be fine for me but it is similar to the gran robusto and not especially tight. The main con is that the flavor becomes vegetal after the halfway point (same for the gran robusto). But overall a pretty good smoke, especially if you're working outside and not always spending time with your cigar.
I find the wrap on this cigar to be sub par at best and a very loose draw. I would pass on these quality is not there.
Smoke 6 out of the box of 20 of Connecticut #1 Pyramid. The draw on each one so far is way too loose, even with the smallest clipping of the end. Not packed correctly in my humble opinion as each one has been the same - too loose, which makes it a bit hot. Gran Robusto and robusto have a far better (correct) draw. Not sure what happen with this box or if it is the 'usual' for the Pyramid. I won't buy these again. 6 out of 20 is not a fluke. Plus they are more expensive!
Bought a box of these a few months ago, tried a couple and found them bland and boring -- so I tossed them in the humidor, where I ignored them for a time. It's been time well spent -- looks like they just needed some "cooking" to draw out the flavors -- which are outstanding for a mild cigar. I've been smoking these sticks to the nub ever since.
