Better rename them the ‘Groupo de Connecticut’
The blenders behind numerous successful Montecristo, Romeo, and H. Upmann releases, ‘Groupo de Maestros’ may not be a household name but you’ve likely had a cigar that’s a result of their work. Today, they turn their eye to revitalizing the mellow-bodied cigar, attempting to offer up a cigar that’ll deliver all the flavor a contemporary cigar lover wants, without making it a full-bodied, Nicaraguan powerhouse. And luckily, they hit it out of the park.
Crafted in the Dominican Republic, H. Upmann Connecticut features a gorgeously smooth Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper. The only thing smoother than this wrapper leaf? The flavor (and that transition, if I do say so myself). Loads of sweet cream hit the palate, with the slightest hints of pepper and a roasted, nutty core.
