Overall:  This cigar is a great early morning cigar with a cup of coffee or for a smoke while on a walk. Offers a nice profile of butter, cream and salt with a hint of pepper at the end as a surprise. ( I didn’t expect any pepper from a Connecticut) The draw was nice and the cigar only had to be touched up once as I let is rest for a period of time Smooth profile and mild to medium strength. Great little cigar.

Final Third

  1. Mint
  2. Bitter Cedar

Total Time: 2 hrs

Overall:  The New World Connecticut starts with a barely perceptible spice, a prevalent sweet grass note, and a distinct toasted bread flavor. It maintained a similar profile until the last 1.5 inches, where a refreshing mint/herbal note shows up. The burn and draw were were perfect, body was medium, strength never got above medium.
