Xikar HC Series Connecticut Shade Grande
"Not My Cup of Tea"
My biggest complaint with this cigar is the draw - there isn t any. I tried punching out the cigar from tip to tail, but still little or no draw. I struggled with this cigar for about half an hour and only about 1/8th of the cigar was burned. Frustrated, I pitched in the fireplace. The taste, IMHO, was awful, too. The construction and burn what little there was are very good, however. Needless to say, this cigar will not be added to my favorites.

"very good smoke"
I also got this cigar in a sampler and left it in a humidor for a couple of weeks. Mine was a good-looking stick with a great, mild tobacco and spice aroma. It lit and burned well, perfect ash, good draw with plenty of tasty, med-strength smoke. I tasted mild leather and spice, which I like, and a subtle sweetness in the finish. The ash held until I knocked it off at the end of the 1st third, again at the end of the 2nd third and again at the band. Flavor was consistent throughout, increasing slightly in the last 3rd. I smoked it to a nub and would buy more. I'd rate it @88, a very good $5 cigar, nice afternoon smoke and I'd happily pay @ $20 for a 5er, but not too much more.

"Disappointment"
I purchased a sampler since I have been so happy with other Xikar products. Let the cigars sit for three weeks in a humidor before trying the Connecticut. Poor construction, wrapper unraveled, spots and not much in terms of a distinctive flavor.Given the price I am still scratching my head as to why bother
