Cohiba Connecticut Coming Out In March

Cohiba Connecticut Coming Out In March

Cohiba has gone to Connecticut—well, Ecuador really. For the first time in the Dominican brand’s history, Cohiba will be getting an Ecuador Connecticut wrapper.  The new brand is called Cohiba Connecticut and is wrapped in a Connecticut cover leaf from Ecuador’s cloudy Los Ríos province.

Because of Ecuador’s fairly constant cloud cover, Connecticut-seed tobacco doesn’t need to be tented under cloth while it grows in the field the way it does in Connecticut, as the clouds provide a natural filter from the sun. This filtration results in a thinner, cleaner wrapper with finer veins and a smoother texture.

Underneath the Ecuadoran Connecticut wrapper, a Mexican San Andrés binder brings together the filler blend of Brazilian Mata Fina, Dominican Piloto Cubano, Dominican Olor and Nicaraguan tobacco from Jalapa.

Made in the Dominican Republic at the General Cigar Dominicana factory, this brand is billed as mild-to-medium bodied and will come in four sizes once it debuts in March: Toro, measuring 6 1/4 inches by 52 ring gauge ($21.99): Gigante, 6 by 60 ($22.99); Robusto, 5 1/2 by 50 ($19.99); and Crystal Robusto, 5 by 50 ($20.99) and comes in a glass tube. All are presented in gleaming, contoured boxes of 20, save for the Crystal Robusto, which is packaged in boxes of 10.
