Leaf by Oscar Connecticut
As fate would have it, Oscar picked up Rocky Patel and a group to tour his factory. The two men hit it off, and Oscar would go on to work for Rocky for close to a decade before opening a factory of his own. The first Leaf by Oscar cigars were produced for Island Jim, owner of the Leaf & Bean cigar shop. The first 5,000 sticks sold out within a month, and in no time, Leaf by Oscar was in high demand.
When most people first lay eyes on Leaf by Oscar Connecticut cigars, they think there must be something wrong with the cigar. Perhaps they even think the roller was drunk. But once they realize this leaf is taking the place of cellophane and keeping the stick beneath fresh, their eyes light up in approval.
Leaf by Oscar Connecticut cigars are mild to medium strength treats that deliver notes of hay, cream, fresh lemon, and cayenne pepper. Serving these up is a pure Honduran core blend and binder topped off with a Honduran Connecticut wrapper leaf. These are truly impressive limited boutique cigars with a twist (pun intended) that you do not want to miss.
