When I think of Connecticut wrappers I think mellow and light. This Cigar Samplers deal is NOT like that. Yes, I may one or two that are mellow. However, I have one or two that are not. In fact, the Joya could be classified as a full-bodied Connecticut! That's crazy like saying jumbo shrimp. Better than 20% off MSRP with FREE shipping is even crazier.
The Perdomo Champagne Robusto ( 5 X 54 ) is Nick's best-selling brand. Smooth, creamy, and consistent best describe this smoke. The blend is a well-aged Connecticut wrapper surrounding a light blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers. In case you don't know, EVERY Perdomo cigar is draw tested to ensure you get a great smoke every single time.
The Gran Habano #1 Connecticut Robusto ( 5 X 52 ) is a mellow cigar perfect for the morning coffee or newer cigar smokers. The light Connecticut shade wrapper gives these cigars an easy to smoke, creamy taste, which is combined with a Nicaraguan Habano binder and Nicaraguan Habano fillers. This is the cigar most people think of when they think Connecticut.
The La Palina Classic Connecticut Robusto ( 5 X 52 ) sports a light Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper surrounding the well-aged Dominican Republic and Nicaragua long-fillers. As expected, this cigar is smooth, creamy, and nutty on the finish. I would rank it slightly above mellow in body.
Joya de Nicaragua Antano Connecticut Corona Gorda ( 5.25 X 46 ) is a surprising powerhouse. The blend is comprised of an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper with premium Nicaraguan tobaccos underneath. Like all Joya sticks, this one packs a surprise punch!
This Cigar Samplers deal takes you down the Connecticut highway of variety. Don't expect all these cigars to taste or act the same. Try this variety and see what you think. The value is solid and the shipping is on me! Enjoy friends.
