Tasting Note: It isn't quite as dark as Connecticut broadleaf, and it isn't quite as light as Connecticut shade. Lying somewhere in the middle is the El Centurion H-2K-CT Toro, an intensely flavorful cigar with an unusual hybrid wrapper. You can ask the Garcia family exactly who it is that grows the Cuban-seed wrapper on the El Centurion H-2K-CT, but they're not likely to say. We know it comes from somewhere in Connecticut, we know it's a Havana 2000 seed hybrid and we know the wrappers are sungrown. Outside of that, the Garcias aren't talking. El Centurion started as a limited-edition release, but last year it hit the market as a full-fledged spinoff brand from the original with a different blend. The box-pressed H-2K-CT cigars are medium to full bodied and beautifully constructed at the My Father Cigars S.A. factory.

Score: 93
An impeccably made box-pressed cigar that starts toasty and nutty and warms to show a honeyed sweetness. Nuanced with a long and pleasing finish.
