When you think of cigars, do you think of the snowy fields of the Northeast U.S.? Of course not! You think of places in sunny Latin America and the Caribbean - bright fields with green leaves, farmers in wide-brimmed hats and guayabera shirts (those short-sleeve button ups you see Cuban dudes in all the time), and the sounds of Spanish everywhere in the air.
But still, Connecticut is a prime location for tobacco growing. In fact, some of the most popular wrapper leaf in the world is Connecticut seed, whether shade-grown or broadleaf. It isn’t just growing in the state of Connecticut. It’s found in the whole Connecticut River Valley! The Connecticut leaf for this particular cigar, however, is actually grown in Ecuador, where natural cloud cover provides great shade for growing wrapper leaf. But still – the original source of the strain is Connecticut and so this is the Rocky Patel Connecticut cigar.
Inside, you’ll also get a nice blend of Honduran long-fillers. The smoke is mild and smooth, with hints of earth and spice, but nothing too overpowering. For many people, this is a simple go-to smoke to light up most mornings. There’s something very relaxing about a cigar made with fine tobacco that’s easy to smoke through and that doesn’t rock the boat too much so you can just enjoy your coffee in peace.
