The draw was just slightly looser than I prefer, but didn’t cause any issues with the smoking experience.
I would label this cigar as a typical Connecticut offering. Nothing fancy and nothing bad about it. Bitterness did pop up from time to time, but the profile always got back on track pretty quickly and gave a primarily woody profile with some cream at times. Performance was very good, so nothing to take your attention away from just enjoying the flavors the cigar provides. If you like the typical Connecticut profile, this is something to check out as the price point is fantastic. For me, I look for a bit more flavor, so I’m not sure I would seek this out, but would gladly smoke one if handed to me.
