This cigar is an absolute gem. Even if you're not a fan of Connecticut mild cigars this smoke will change your mind. Tons of flavor, the draw is excellent, and the subtle changes as it burns will knock your socks off. A very nice change of pace from the full body sticks I normally smoke.
These are some awesome smokes! Perfect burn, easy draw, tasty, and lots of creamy smoke. I have a new favorite!
Smoking my first Padilla Connecticut right now. Love it. I'm a heavy bodied nicaragua fan searching for a good conn. wrapped cigar as I haven't found one I like enough to buy- until now. Half way through and flavor is fabulous. Perfect draw, crisp burn, finish has a nice spicy pepper that fades fast. Nice cigar !
I gravitate to Nicaraguan cigars, especially those from Oliva/Padilla, Alec Bradley, and Don Pepín Gracia and his son Jaime. While I prefer a fuller flavored cigar - the Reserve Maduro and Vintage Reserve from from Padilla are excellent - these Connecticuts from Padilla offer a pleasureable smoke. No French peanut, currant, or Belgian caramel notes here. Instead you get a consistent toasty tobacco and cedar flavor with a great even burn, an easy draw, and lotsa smoke. Very enjoyable at the end of a tough day with rye or bourbon and a good book. If you prefer a milder stick, try one of these.
