First there was Grand Cru, a rare blend utilizing only the finest hand-selected tobaccos from Nick Perdomo's 2004 crop. Proving to be an excellent year, Nick Perdomo planned a new crop in 2006 to carry the torch forward. Enter the next phase of Grand Cru cigars, Grand Cru 2006.
The Grand Cru Connecticut is the tamest of the new line, but thanks to its well-balanced blend, manages to strike up some big-time flavors. Draped in a seamless Ecuador Connecticut wrapper, and chock full of Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers, each puff is creamy, cool and satisfying. But the real secret to this blend lies in the aged core, which is set down for a long 9 month nap in Spanish cedar aging rooms prior to rolling. Each puff reveals a mild to medium-bodied handmade brimming with hints of cedar, cream, coffee, and a long smooth finish. Crafted into a stout 60-ring gauge, the Grand Cru 2006 Connecticut is another fine cigar from Tabacalera Perdomo.
Have always considered Nick P's Patriarch one of the best smokes ever and have been looking for a substitute. No need to look further...the GC 2006 Connecticut is it. Medium body, creamy, cedar mouthfuls of smoke so tasty you want to inhale. A nuber, Perdomo perfection.
