By making use of the oldest Connecticut shade-grown wrapper in the marketplace, Rocky Patel instantly elevates these cigars above Connecticuts put out by all other manufacturers. Assembled at Rocky’s Danlí, Honduras factory, these sticks’ seven-years-plus-aged wrappers, blend of seven-year-aged Dominican and Nicaraguan ligero fillers and aromatic Nicaraguan binder lift them to even greater heights.
Unlike other Connecticuts, the flavor is more intense, with a medium body and a savory, rather than sweet, taste, which in this case can be more precisely defined as toasty, nutty, woody and leathery, with subtle hints of pepper.
These flawlessly constructed, golden-tan cigars are perfect to enjoy with a sweet beverage. Featuring an ultra-smooth draw, the Vintage 1999 Connecticuts produce fabulously dense, creamy smoke and an even, sharp burn over a generous amount of time for their sizes.
Rated 88 by Cigar Aficionado in 2019, this line may change the way you think about Connecticuts. These cigars are one of the finest smokes out there at any price; they’re a must-have for your humidor.
