Perdomo Fresco Connecticut
Perdomo has grown to become a household name thanks in large part for huge value cigars like these that find the perfect balance point between quality and price. They’re not throwaway smokes by any means. Instead, Perdomo uses its vast tobacco library from its fields in Nicaragua and creates just the right mix to make a fine Connecticut bundle cigar.
The interior blend of the Perdomo Fresco Connecticut cigar uses Cuban-seed Nicaraguan long-fillers and a binder leaf grown in Estelí, Nicaragua. Fans of Perdomo will know that this formula is the company’s bread and butter. To get a nice Connecticut, though, you need to head to another country more suited to producing shade-grown wrapper leaf. The natural solution is Ecuador, where frequent cloud cover produces a similar effect to growing tobacco under tents as is required in Connecticut and other locations producing CT-seed leaf.
Ultimately, the Perdomo Fresco Connecticut cigar is a mild to medium strength cigar with a foundation of citrus and spice flavor, along with hints of cedar and oak on the finish. It’s a nice woody profile with enough zest to keep it interesting. Connecticut's can be built to deliver incredible smoothness or to offer a more lively (but still mild) profile. This is the latter, and you can often get it for a song.
Super-premium Connecticuts are more the province of Davidoff, Ashton, and even companies like Macanudo and Drew Estate. But for the Connecticut you can reach for each morning if you love to wake up with coffee and a cigar, the Perdomo Fresco Connecticut is a very strong contender. This is a super reliable smoke.
