The Esteban Carreras Cashmere Boolit is a solid Connecticut and the pricing makes it very appealing. It is not a Connecticut I would definitely gravitate to if I had options, but I would be happy with selecting this if my options were limited.
After smoking the Tatuaje Black Label Petite Corona BC, this cigar joins the ranks of Rothchild Maduro. Wonderfully Nicaraguan Criollo with great nasal clearing red/cayenne pepper spice, barnyard stank and meatiness. I can see myself smoking multiples of these in one sitting. Well worth the price point and tasting experience.
The Drew Estate Undercrown Shade Corona Pequeña definitely fits the bill for a quick 30-40 minute cigar that gets the job done. The flavors between spice and sweet citrus were in good balance and lasted just long enough for me to either be satisfied or entertain lighting up another one.
Smoking the Drew Estate Undercrown Maduro Corona Pequeña has resurrected my interest in the brand, and I will definitely be smoking some of the original vitolas the next time I go to the shop. This is a terrific small cigar and great for when you don't have much smoking time. There is a lot of flavor in the cigar and the second third is magnificent.
This is my first experience with the Short Tales line but has me eager to try the other iterations. In a small format like this, it's hard to ask for more in what it delivers. I would gladly smoke more of these and it is something I wouldn't hesitate to recommend that you try to track down some to smoke so you can see what you think.
I enjoyed both vitolas equally. Both will pair great with the conventional Connecticut cigar pairing of coffee. Both will also stand well by itself, as the cigars provide good depth of flavors, body and finish for any time of the day. Robert Holt’s years in the making has paid off well especially for us flavor forward cigar lovers.
Given the new wave of semi-recently released Connecticut cigars, the Southern Draw is a strong contender amongst the competition. There is a great interplay of sweetness and spice that can be enjoyed in the morning, day time or even night time.
