La Vieja Habana Connecticut

A delightful classic by Drew Estate!

LVH Fumas by Drew Estate are handmade in Esteli, Nicaragua and offer gorgeous packaging and - despite SCHIP tax increases - remains a good value. The Connecticut Shade is the most mellow of the LVH Fumas blends. Dressed in a true Connecticut Shade wrapper, one that's silky and smooth, this blend combines a mixed-filler combination of Nicaraguan tobaccos from Esteli and the Jalapa Valley. The result is a mellow blend with creamy, smooth nuances including toasty notes of earth and coffee.

Quality smoke..
Great little cigar! I was looking for the taste of Nicaragua confined to a 15-30 minute smoke break and this was perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed these and will be buying more.

Great value
Burn is good, draw is perfect, which is shocking for this type of cigar. Smoke output is medium, flavor is decent, nothing harsh at all. These are a good value, I would buy again.

Great Christmas gift.
I bought these for my husband and I believe they are one of his favorites. He says the flavor is great and has an even burn. I believe that these will continue to be on his Christmas wish list.

Love these cigars!
Favorite “go-to” mild cigar in my humidor. Even burning ash, stays lit, about a 75 minute smoke for me. Hints of chocolate, cherry, and almond. Great smoke at a great price!

Never a doubt
I've had these cigars before and have become one of my favorites over the years. The flavor is there; even burn, and doesn't get over hot. There was never a doubt I was going to enjoy this order.

This Cigar’s a Winner
This is my “go to” cigar when I want a mild, flavorful smoke. They always burn true and taste great right down to the nub. I don’t reorder many brands, but I always head to the CI site when my stash of these gets low so I never run out. The Corojo version is also delicious!

Nice Mild Smoke for a Great Price
This is a mild cigar and can easily be a good and reliable daily smoke. The cigar is well constructed and the flavor is consistent throughout. I recommend storing this cigar in the humidor for a while before you enjoy it.

Excellent Connecticut shade cigar
I'm partial to CT shade wrappers as I lived in Windsor Locks, CT for many years. This cigar is an excellent example of a mild CT shade smoke. Out of the box it has a light brown color with a scent that is pleasingly mild, indicative of the taste once you light it. It has an easy draw with lots of creamy smoke. It has a consistent even burn with a white ash that hangs on for a couple of inches despite being a mixed filler. Because of the mixed filler having smaller tobacco pieces I use a punch rather than cut the whole end off to avoid loose shreds. I smoke them to the nub because they taste great all the way.

nice cigar
I'm not an aficionado but I know that I enjoy this particular cigar. Its affordable, not too harsh, has a fantastic ash, burns slow, and is most enjoyable. I'm on my 3rd box of 20 and will get more in the future. As always, ymmv but I give these guys two thumbs up. My 2¢
2 out of 5
It is an "OK" cigar not overwhelming if you prefer a mellow body smoke. it is a bitter smoke with slight peppery embellishments, burn was good but was hot on pallet, even after resting in my humidor. Good thing they were on sale, but I believe if a friend offered me one in the distant future, I would pass.

Worth The Money
I have been smoking cigars for several years. I was always trying new cigar and I can't tell you how I came across the La Vieja Habana Connecticut Chateau Corona. Without a doubt, the most satisfying smoke that I have come across. It is actually the best kept secert. By far my favorite cigar. The 46x5.5 is the perfect 30 minute cigar. There are only two cons with this cigar. One, the price continues to go up and the worst of all, I have never seen this cigar on sale. I still buy two boxesw at a time. Well worth the money.
Customer Testimonials
These are my favorite smokes this year! 5x54 or 6x54. Drew Estates quality & flavor at a good price.

Love these cigars, one of my favorites!
SR of Georgetown, IN
I am a big fan of Drew Estate cigars. Starting with Blondie 15 years ago, nearly every blend I have tried has been impressive. However, I am not a fan of mixed filler cigars. I have avoided them religiously, thinking they would be soft in construction, burn irregularly or somehow just fall apart while smoking. Enter La Vieja Habana Connecticut & all those fears fall by the wayside. If you didn't know this was a mixed filler stogie, I doubt you would know after smoking one. Double capped, firm, somewhat heavy in the hand, LVHC features an Equadorian shade leaf wrapper over Nicaraguan mixed filler. It is mild & smooth, with an even burn. Perhaps the way the ash falls off after about 1/2", would be the tip off as to the length of the filler. Otherwise, it performs as well as just about any long filler cigar. It's tasty too. A bit mild for my personal taste, nonetheless, flavorful with hints of mild spice. This would be fine as the 1st vitola of the day or with a cup of strong coffee. Easy to recommend to mildheads or those looking for a bargain. The price point is reasonable, the construction good, the burn consistent. All in all, typical of the quality of Drew Estate offerings. 89/100
The best mixed-filler cigar on the planet, period!
PN of Chula Vista, CA
Great smoke! Good strength without overpowering, good draw, good taste. I grab these by the handfuls and keep several in my glove box (I know, I know)...always ready if I ask someone to join me in a smoke! One of my favorites!
This was my first order from CI. Wow! This cigar is amazingly smooth for the price. My "go to" mild was the San Cristobal Elegancia but this one may take over 1st place. I let them set in humidor for a day or so and first one smoked lit well, burned even, no touch ups required and tasted and smelled great. Will definitely be a repeat customer on this cigar. Thanks CI.

I first tried this cigar 5 or 6 yrs ago when i went to go see my dad in Florida... Been smoking them ever since :)
TS of Lodi, NJ
I have been a customer of CI now for 5 yrs. I have tried many different cigars. I had never tried the Drew Estate line because his infused blends never interested me in the least. I decided to try his non infused cigars and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The LVH conneticut shade Fumas were a dellight to smoke. Mild and ever so tasty. I smoked six in one day and that is a first for me. I will be buying more of these in the future!
DM of Monaca, PA
The cigars arrived today, and no I did not wait for them to rest. I wanted a new smoke for a beautiful summer evening. Appearance- well constructed, veiny wrapper, it felt a little soft to me. (That resting thing in the humidor would help this.) Easy to light(wooden matches), it seemed a little harsh from the start. About 1/4 inch in the creaminess came through and the harshness was gone. A pleasant smoke. The ash was perfect- no tunneling or canoeing. The ash only fell off when it got too long (about 1.5") I generally smoke Maduros, so this one seems mild to me. Others may call it a medium. Once it reached the sweet spot there was a touch of vanilla through to the finish. A pleasant smoke for a relaxing evening. I will buy more of these.

My hat off to Drew Estate, a beautifull cigar (LVH Fumas - Connecticut Shade) and a brillant way to package it, I bought the corona's they are the perfect size for me, not to big not to small, and they are made to perfection all 20 cigars look amazing and the conn. wrapper is flawless, These beauties light easy, have a great draw and burn even with a medium gray ash, I do like a stronger cigar every now and then but I know I can smoke a cigar like this and never get that light headed feeling, next im going to try the maduro, these cigars will always have a home in my humidor, If you like a mild smoke give these a try you won't be sorry and wait till you see the box and the way they package the cigars,,,VERY COOL.
Great cigar, my favorite.(La Vieja Habana Fumas Connecticut) As said, smooth, easy to smoke and I'm not good at saying what flavors or hints are there, I just know what I like.
DL of Klamath Falls, OR
Ordered a box of the La Vieja Connecticut by Drew Estate. After a few days resting in the humidor I fired one up and was immediately impressed by the smooth draw and mild to medium body of this cigar. Just a hint of spice keeps it interesting, along with some nice woodsy notes. It reminds me of the Davidoff Grand Cru #2 which is a $12.00 cigar.
