Coarse and veiny, this Connecticut shade cigar has a rough cap. Early notes of damp wood turn sweet with a hint of chocolate, but the finish becomes charry like burnt oak.

Yellowish and veiny, this cigar is surprisingly flavorful, showing a nutty, almond-like quality with hints of cinnamon and cedar. A medium-bodied smoke.

Creamy and woody in character this lightly hued cigar draws and burns evenly. The finish is sweet and savory with toffee and a touch of leather.

Big and blonde with a very round head and some light veins to the wrapper. Creamy vanilla notes are offset by green vegetal flavors and some underlying bitterness.

A pale cigar with an uneven burn. The savory smoke starts toasty and woody but becomes papery and slightly grassy on the finish.

A mostly even burn produces a pleasant, nutty aroma. The cigar opens with nutty flavors, showing wood and paper. Sweet notes pervade the light, mellow finish.
