Cigars of the Week: Famous Nicaraguan Connecticut

The filler & binder core are all first-grade, hand-selected Nicaraguan longfillers rolled in silky, sun-kissed Ecuadorian Connecticut-seed wrappers. Depending on your palate, the cigars are mild to medium in body revealing an earthy, well-balanced smoke with flavors of sweet cedar and notes of coffee bean in the mix.

If you’re looking for a well-made, smooth-smoking “everyday” cigar with a dose of Nicaraguan spice, the Toro (shown above) is a terrific value and among the most flavorful in the line. The burn is clean, the ash firm, and the aroma, heavenly.

If I was allowed to tell you the source, you’d jump on these in a nanosecond. Suffice it to say, they’re available in four sizes, and at these prices you’re getting a helluva deal.
