Alec Bradley cigars are known for their consistent high ratings and their top notch flavor profiles and the Connecticut is no different. Don’t let the generic name fool you, the Connecticut that you have in your shipment today is a one of a kind cigar that you can enjoy just about any time of day. This Nicaraguan handmade starts with a seamless Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper that secures a Honduran binder and a mix of Honduran and Nicaraguan fillers that are packed to the brim. Mild to medium bodied, you can expect notes of cedar, nuts, and toast with a semi sweet finish. A cool smoke down to the nub, we suggest you enjoy it with a coffee.
The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.
The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
