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.
for Alec Bradley Connecticut Gordo by David A. in Seattle on June 19, 2014
I have long enjoyed gordo sized cigars from Alec Bradley, namely those in the American Classic and American Sun Grown lines; however, these are not comparable. The larger ring gauge allows for more stem in the filler, and therefore a lot of problems with burn, consistency, and draw. I have yet to get one to stay lit past the first half inch, before tunneling and highly uneven burn sets in.Because of this, I am unable to get a full draw off of the stick, and cannot begin to evaluate taste and flavor profile. Alec Bradley needs to correct this flaw in production, otherwise this stick is a complete disappointment, and waste of space in the humidor, as it cannot be enjoyed.
