Room 101 Big Payback Connecticut cigars are part of a line that’s a bit of a love letter to fans of Room 101 cigars. While many cigar makers roll up premium cigars with whatever high price tag makes sense, these are a bit different. They’re high-quality cigars that are more affordable than many of the brand’s other smokes, as a “thank you” to the fans who have helped the company become the success story that it now is. Now, one man’s “affordable” cigar is not the same as another. We know that when you really want a super-budget smoke you can head to the gas station and ask for whatever machined smokes are behind the counter. But if you want a taste of luxury that doesn’t smash your bank account, Room 101 Big Payback Connecticut cigars can fit the bill.
There’s also a Maduro version and something called the El Gran Papi Chulo, while this version is draped in a blonde Ecuador Connecticut wrapper. It’s a very bright wrapper – you’ll probably be able to pick it out in your humidor. Inside, there’s more complex and flavorful tobacco hiding, though. This isn’t your average Connecticut. There’s a Mexican binder and some leathery Dominican filler that helps create a very enjoyable flavor profile. The Room 101 Big Payback Connecticut cigar manages to be smooth at a mild-medium strength without being boring.
Toast up the foot on this blend and you’ll get some nice peanutty spice. This will give way to something more like a lightly sweetened cereal or graham cracker. The flavors stay fairly stable as you go along, making this a reliable smoke that you can enjoy the whole way through.
If this line is our payback, we’re telling Room101 that we’re paid in full.
