Characteristics An extremely creamy and mellow smoke. Insider’s Tip Only vintage years of Connecticut shade tobaccos are used for the wrappers, which are aged during the summer in the Dominican Republic, and in the winter in Connecticut, an exclusive and costly process. This is only the 27th vintage series produced. Although officially out of production, these cigars can still be found at some tobacconists and online. Each of the four sizes is sealed in a glass tube. Our favorite: the 6 x 54. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
