New Wave Connecticut

Connecticut wrapped cigars have been here for ages but only Ernesto can take a Connecticut and turn it on its head.  New Wave Connecticut is not the typical run of the mill cigar, it is anything but that.  Designed to be rich and flavorful with a kick of spice this Connecticut will surely be enjoyed by all that smoke it.

Taste – Mild Medium-Flavored

This is not the typical Connecticut wrapped cigar, instead it is rich and full of flavor. The Ecuadorian wrapper and binder on all Nicaraguan fillers make this Connecticut the perfect mild to medium cigar for the smoker’s rotation. Rich and complex in flavor with hints of spice and sweetness this well balanced cigar will easily please the senses.

I find this cigar pairs very well with Elijah Craig Rye- was very happy and enjoyed the smoke which reveals the mild smoke of the cigar with the hint of spice 😀
