The original Aging Room Quattro releases (F55 and F55 Maduro) were, arguably, two of the best blends Rafael Nodal has ever done. I mean, how many cigars can claim they were the highest rated non-Cuban blend in a year? Not many. Today, F55 has been rebranded into the Quattro line, and we’re staring down the barrel of something I’ve personally been waiting a long time for: presenting the smoothest addition to the Quattro name, Aging Room Quattro Connecticut.
Handmade in the Dominican Republic and blended as a collaboration between Rafael Nodal and the folks behind such monstrously successful brands as Romeo y Juliet and Montecristo, it’s no wonder Quattro Connecticut is such a stunner. Up to, a smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper melds perfectly into Dominican binder and long-fillers to bring you a lusciously creamy profile featuring notes of roasted nuts and natural sweetness.
I am a new cigar smoker. I went with this cigar because it seemed like a safe bet...and it was. It is smooth and mellow, almost to mellow. It is definitely helping me taste the cigar and its notes better, but it’s almost too mellow. It doesn’t have as much flavor as some of the others I’ve tried, but that’s not nessessarily a bad thing either. Overall, i am satisfied but left wanting a little more. Buy the 5 pack to try it out.
