Where it’s at: Impeccably crafted with a silky Connecticut wrapper. Bold, black pepper notes leap out of the gate. Settles into a creamy, earthy smoke with a long, crisp, peppery finish. A layer of tart fruit enters midstream with a light cedary note. A very refined slam-dunk for smokers who crave spicy cigars.
