The Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper of the Alec Bradley Connecticut Robusto is a golden brown with very fine veins, some oil and has notes of sweet hay, nuts, and a bit of wood. This cigar starts out a little loose with the draw, but tightens up after the first half inch or so. The strength of this cigar is a mild to medium with flavors such as coffee, nutmeg, nuts, and a very light vanilla and provides a full body of thick, cool, smooth, rich and creamy sweet smoke. With a razor sharp burn and firm ash, the Alec Bradley Connecticut Robusto smokes all the way to the nub without pulling any heat and carries a nice balance of strength and richness of the flavors throughout the entire smoke. This cigar is perfect for new cigar enthusiasts as well as smokers looking for a great new cigar to add to their collection.
