...Taste! As much as I try, I've yet to be floored with the Connecticut wrapper. This cigar while having a perfect draw, construction and burn had a totally underwhelming flavor profile. It s not bad just plain and simple, too mild for my palette.
One of these cigars was included in the top shelf sampler. I was excited to try it based on the ratings, and the fact that I enjoy the higher ring gauge cigars. Unfortunately the taste of this cigar was simply off-putting. The draw and burn was fine, the construction was good, but I would be hesitant even to try another of this cigars, especially if I had to pay for it. Perhaps it was a single bad result, but I am not sure I will take the time to see.
