Cigar Reviewed: Camacho Connecticut

Camacho makes great cigars, and the Connecticut is no different. Its wrapped in a flawless Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrapper applied expertly with hardly any veins and nearly invisible seams. The dry draw is a little tight for my liking, but the flavors are pleasant. After lighting, and smoking about an inch or so, the draw loosened just enough for me. Starting out the smoke is very mild and creamy, with maybe some buttery notes as well as light nuttiness. The ash held together very nicely, getting through the first third with ash in tact. The burn has also been razor sharp, never giving me the slightest inclination to grab my lighter for a touch up. As I work my way through the half way point, the spiciness from the corojo binder starts to jump out which is a pleasant change of scenery for me, as I was starting to get a little bored with the smooth buttery smoke at this point. The spice has also been more noticeable on the retro at this point as well. The aroma is divine, and not at all off putting in any way. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and I will definitely have another!
