Cusano 18 Double Connecticut Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 stick features a very soft and dry medium tan wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, large double cap, light pack and rich wood aroma. First light reveals an excellent draw with great smoke output giving medium-full flavors of a slightly sweet zing tobacco with a short clean finish. The first third very quickly shifts to a smooth nut and leather, with a longer dry finish. 30 minutes in at the 1/2 way point the general nuttiness morphs to a nutmeg, growing a tad bit sweet, mixing well with the leather. The finish grows long and full lasting well until the next draw. Ending at 45 minutes the last third got very hot with just over an inch remaining, and the flavors showed no further changes. Thank you very much to User X3 for sending this in for review!

    Thanks Brian, as always great job. Ive been holding off on these with some mixed reviews. Im looking forward to picking some up as Ive always particularly enjoyed the Cusano/Cuvee lineup. Particularly the LX (sungrown)Churchill.

    Love the connecticut wrappers!

    This and the perdomo champagne are my two favorite conicticut wrapper cigars.

    These are great cigars for the price. I thought I heard a rumor about them being discontinued soon. Not sure if its true but I should pick up a box of each soon.

    Hey, Bryan. Thanks as always for the great review. I have the Double Connecticut Churchill sitting in my humidor, and am honestly saving it for when my father comes into town as he favors the mild-to-medium cigars. After your review I’m half thinking of smoking it myself…we’ll see! Oh yeah, I’d love to hear your voice alone during your reviews. Would you consider kicking the volume way down or even killing it totally during the main review sections? Thanks, brother…
