C & C Connecticut Robusto Cigar Review

This 5×50 stick features a medium tan lumpy hand rolled wrapper with an even spongy give, minimal veins, tight invisible seams, triple cap, smooth soft texture and a rich hay and wood aroma. First light reveals an extremely loose zero resistance draw with copious amounts of medium bodied smoke giving flavors of a slightly bitter wood and a long smooth finish. The first third develops much the same, dialing down the bitterness a touch while bringing body up to a medium-full. There is quite an oil left on the lips and a zingy twang through the finish. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 30 minutes, the ash holds on till then and flavors show no changes. Ending at 50 minutes at the nub, the last third showed no changes. This sample was from the 2012 IPCPR show courtesy of C&C Cigars.

  • Don’t know if you’ve had the C&C corojo. But it is a real good budget stick.

    Just out of curiosity, do you smoke cigars outside of doing the reviews? on a daily basis? and then just choose different ones to review?

    • I do but most of my time is smoking them for review yes.

      • kprichardson7

        alright well me and my buddy love the reviews, were waitin to see you review the gurkha platinum triad ha ha. Were dyin to know if its any good for that kind of $$

    Bryan, I see this was from the show. Random question, did you get alot of attention to take samples to review based on the popularity of the site?

    As of right now, the C&C LRMD(maduro) is my go to cigar. $4 for a robusto and I can’t get enough of them.
